Premier League net spend table throws up surprise as Jadon Sancho deal put Manchester United top, but Chelsea and Man City have actually MADE money this summer

 With teams gearing up for the 2021/22 Premier League season, all clubs are splashing the cash to improve on their squads, but who are the biggest spenders so far?

Only Newcastle United, Manchester City, and Chelsea are yet to spend a penny, although the Premier League winners and European champions are being linked with some of the biggest deals.

Man United have already made one high-profile summer signing in Jadon Sancho

With the financial power that City’s and the Blues’ owners Sheikh Mansour and Roman Abramovich respectively possess, it is only a matter of time before they open up their cheque books.

Currently, Manchester United, Leicester City, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Norwich City have spent the most money bringing new players in.

Most notable was United’s £73million signing of Borussia Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho, and Leicester City’s deals for Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare for a combined total of £40m.

Liverpool also went in big for Ibrahima Konate, spending £36m on the RB Leipzig defender

Liverpool’s new No.5 Konate is expected to slot straight into Jurgen Klopp’s side this season following his arrival from RB Leipzig

Meanwhile, Villa splashed out and beat Arsenal to the signing of Emiliano Buendia for £33m and Championship winners Norwich City have forked out £31.5m on six players as they prepare for their return to the top flight.

That being said, the outgoings of a few of those clubs decrease their net transfer totals considerably.

Liverpool, despite bringing in another centre-back this summer following their defensive crisis of last season, have only spent £7m following the smart sales of Marko Grujic, Harry Wilson and others for a total of £29m.

Norwich City have made money this summer, the £33m received from Villa for Buendia has enabled the Canaries to make a profit of £1.5m, despite signing seven players.

The term ‘net spend’ has been widely used in recent times in light of the big fees club’s have received to counteract the money they have spent.

Abramovich has spent big money at Chelsea, but his shrewd deals have also seen the Blues generate millions through players sales 

Chelsea, for example, a club notorious for spending a lot of money, have also received considerable amounts.

When they do eventually make a signing or two this transfer window, they will be able to boast the fact that the club has earned £29.86m in sales so far.

Factoring in the net spend; United, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Aston Villa are still the biggest spenders.

And with Liverpool and Norwich both receiving large amounts, the next biggest spenders then become – surprisingly – Leeds, Arsenal, and Brentford.

Who’d have thought the richest clubs in the Premier League would be at the bottom of the biggest spenders of the transfer window so far…
