The Premier League big six’s net spend per trophy over the last 10 years
Bankrolled by billionaire owners, Premier League clubs have been throwing money at new players in the hope it translates to results on the pitch.
Using data from Transfermarkt, we’ve looked at the net spend per trophy won for the ‘big six’ Premier League clubs since the summer of 2011.
Note: we’ve not included the Community Shield as a major trophy. Sorry, Jose.
The figures show that Chelsea and Liverpool are getting a good return on their investments but Manchester United have wasted a lot of money.
While Manchester City have the biggest net spend of any Premier League side over the last decade, they do have at least have 10 major trophies to show for it.
