Default Debunking the “More with less” Myth

Manchester United are the third biggest spenders in the Premier League over the last decade.

United spent around £75million on players in the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Donny van de Beek, Amad Diallo, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri.

While no player was signed for an extravagantly large amount of money, the cumulative total of £75m pushed United's spending over the last decade to £1.09bn.

This total is fueled by big fees for players including Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Romelu Lukaku.

That means United have been outspent by just two clubs in the last decade.

Unsurprisingly, rivals Manchester City have spent the most in the last decade - but Chelsea have pushed them close.

City have paid out £1.421bn in transfer fees over the last 10 years and spent around £147m on players in the summer window.

Chelsea's big summer of spending saw them bring in Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell among others, as they paid out a total of almost £223m.

That pushed the Blues' spending over the last decade up to £1.380bn.

United sit comfortably in the top three spenders in the Premier League over the last decade, having spent more than £100m more than fourth-highest spenders Liverpool.

The Anfield club have spent £909.9m on players in the last decade.

Interestingly, despite United's reputation as big spenders, Chelsea and Man City have always been ahead of them in terms of transfer fees paid over the last 10 years.

Instead, United have been battling Liverpool for third-highest transfer spend, and have only pulled away from the Merseyside club in the last two seasons.

Arsenal round out the top five highest spenders, having paid out £789m for transfers.
