On the final day of the summer transfer period, the Premier League spent a record £1.9 billion.
The incredible summer transfer window, which ended on Thursday, saw a number of new spending records set. The costliest deadline-day signing in history was Antony, who cost Manchester United £82 million. Nine of the 20 teams in the top division spent more than £100 million after two seasons of falling expenditure because to Covid.

- Clubs in the Premier League spend more than the entirety of the Bundesliga in Germany, the Serie A in Italy, and La Liga in Spain put together.
- Chelsea spent more money than any other side in a single Premier League season.
- Manchester United breaking their record for summer expenditure
- Nottingham Forest made the most summer signings of any British club in history.
The amount of the 20 teams’ outlays during the window, which ran from 10 June to 1 September, was 67% more than the sum of £1.1 billion from the summer before. According to financial services firm Deloitte, the 2022–23 season will have witnessed the most transfer spending since the two-window season was introduced, topping the previous record of £1.86 billion set in 2017–18 by 3%. And that was before the January transfer window opened.
Deloitte also obtained the following important information from the window:
- Gross expenditure grew by 52% to £3.88 billion across all of Europe’s “big five” leagues, including the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, and Ligue 1.
- The greatest percentage since summer 2008 and over three times that of the second-highest spenders in Serie A (£646m) came from Premier League teams, who were responsible for 49% of that spending.
- Teams in the Premier League added 169 new players throughout the summer of 2021 and 2020, up from 148 and 132 respectively, as their net transfer expenditure surpassed £1 billion for the first time.
- From 45% in summer 2021, the percentage of players signed for a fee rose to 66% in summer 2022.
- Although overall spending by Championship teams more than doubled from the previous summer to £86 million (2017-19 three-year average: £169.4 million), it was still much below pre-Covid levels.
Lead partner Tim Bridge of Deloitte’s Sports Business Group stated: “As spectators return to stadiums and a new broadcast cycle kicks off, Premier League clubs’ record expenditure during this transfer window is a glaring sign of their confidence. Top-flight clubs won’t be “cost of living proof,” Bridge did point out. While we may speak about football being recession-proof, Bridge insisted that it would not, under any circumstances, be the cost of living-proof. Holding games and making the effort to lure spectators and provide them the chance to participate would be very expensive for clubs and organisations.
Purchasing a new team
For the first time since 1999, Nottingham Forest is once again a member of the Premier League and based on their summer purchases, they want to remain there. The team of Steve Cooper has gone on an astounding spending binge, spending £145 million on the acquisition of 21 new players, shattering the British record for the most signings in a single season. The previous English record, according to Transfermarkt, was the 17 players that Crystal Palace acquired in the summer of 2013. Livingston and Dundee United, who each recruited 19 players in 2001 and 2000, previously held the British record. The same might have been saying for Forest, but a last-minute attempt to recruit Chelsea attacker Michy Batshuayi from Belgium failed.
The contract allowed the xem bóng đá trực tiếp ngoại hạng anh to break the previous record of £1.4 billion set in 2017 and overshadow the rest of Europe, resulting in a new spending high of about £1.9 billion. Ensuring the clubs’ long-term success and acknowledging their full worth as community assets. In the midst of the current cost-of-living crisis, we must take action to guarantee that football clubs continue to play a key role above and beyond these headline numbers.
