The absolute transfer record was recorded in the summer in the Premier League, with English clubs having spent a total of more than €2 billion so far, to be exact (€2.3 billion).

Premier League clubs have broken the transfer record again after breaking the €2 billion barrier according to the Daily Mail in the last transfer window.

Specifically, all 20 clubs have spent a total of 2.3 billion euros, breaking even easily beating the record set in 2017, which amounted to 1.7 million euros.

Manchester United are the club that made the most expensive transfer in the summer, having forked out 95 million euros from their coffers to sign Anthony from Ajax, while another five million euros will be given as a bonus for achieving goals.

The 2nd highest paid Premier League player is Wesley Fofana. Chelsea after reaching a definitive agreement with Leicester announced the French defender for the next seven years for €87 million, a sum that will make him the most expensive stopper transfer in the history of the sport.

Liverpool are the third most expensive transfer fee for a player after Darwin Nunes cost them €75m. Erling Haaland is in 7th place with €60m, below Casemiro, Alexander Isak and Mark Koukoreja.

It is worth noting that Chelsea spent the most money of all the clubs, with the total amount of transfers reaching 278 million euros, with United coming second with 238 million euros, while the trio is completed by Nottingham with 161 million euros.
