Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City Lead The Chasing Park Of Agency Fees In The Premier League


Chelsea dominated agent fees and intermediary payments in the Premier League over the past 12 months, shelling out more than £75 million. 

Their staggering expenditure reflects the aggressive approach they’ve taken in the transfer market since Todd Boehly assumed ownership of the club in the summer of 2022, with their total spending on transfers and loan fees surpassing £1 billion. 

One notable deal was the potential British record signing of midfielder Moises Caicedo from Brighton & Hove Albion for a sum that could rise to £115 million.

Following closely behind Chelsea, Manchester City ranked second in agent fees, surpassing the £60 million mark.

Manchester United occupied the third spot, albeit with a significantly lower expenditure of £34 million, less than half of what Chelsea disbursed. 

The top six clubs’ agent fees spending were rounded out by Liverpool, Arsenal, and Aston Villa, all surpassing the £20 million mark.

Notably, Luton Town spent the least among Premier League clubs, with their outlay amounting to a modest £2 million. 

Conversely, last season’s relegated Premier League clubs, Leeds United, Leicester City, and Southampton, paid the highest agent fees among current Championship teams. 

The Championship clubs collectively spent £61.3 million, with Leeds United leading the pack at £13.2 million.

In League One, Derby County topped the spending charts with £434,465, while the total expenditure among League One clubs amounted to £5.1 million. 

Meanwhile, Wrexham, owned by Hollywood figures Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, led League Two in spending, with payments to agents and intermediaries totaling £347,027. 

The total payments by current English League Two clubs stood at £2.4 million, with Forest Green Rovers  (£266,191), emerging as the biggest spender after Wrexham.
