Man City almost equalled the combined EFL Championship spending but still aren’t the highest spender in the league

Premier League is the most-watched domestic football league in the football world. And without a doubt, it also happens to house players with crazy wages. The league started back in 1992 and has only seen growth from that year onwards.

The rise in cash flow due to TV rights and other sources has made the teams in the English top tier very rich. This allows them to spend mammoth sums in the wake of trying to land the best possible talents.

Apart from the wages, an average PL side spends more on transfers than the teams in other top five European leagues on an average player. During the past two transfer windows, agents and other intermediaries involved in smoothning the transfer deals have also benefitted heavily.

In a report released by the Football Association (FA), we see Premier League teams paying agents upwards of £409 million from 1 February 2023 to 1 February 2024.

These fees are not only accounting transfer deals where players were signed but also sold and contract updations. This period has also seen a meteoric rise from the previous by £91 million. In the crazy expenditures, it is Chelsea FC who leads the line. The Blues have forked out £75 million alone. That is approximately 20 per cent of the net spend by all the 20 PL clubs.

One more interesting money-spending ability and disparity thing to know is the second tier of English football which is the EFL Championship couldn’t altogether compete with the Stamford Bridge hosts. Adding all such agent and other intermediaries expenditures of Championship sides totalled just £61 million. That’s still £14 million less than Chelsea alone.

In the runners-up, we have Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side managed to pay a little upward of £60 million. Their arch-rivals Manchester United were a little precautious as they managed to spend just £34 million. The only other team that crossed the £30 million mark was Liverpool. The Reds made payments of up to £31.5 million.

The following list will help precisely give you the information for particular Premier League clubs and their spending on agent fees.
