Spread the love

The CIES Football Observatory recently published the list of the football clubs that have spent the most on transfers in the last ten years. The observatory body added up the net spend of the top European clubs from the 2012-2013 season. Interestingly, the outcome of the calculation left some wondering whether money buys success.

Some of the critics of the list had to wonder about the role of money in the success of clubs because some of the top spenders in the last ten years are yet to win as much as those who spent less in the same time frame.

For instance, Real Madrid which used to be the highest spenders on transfers have taken the back seat in the last ten years. Their net spend on transfer in the last ten years is just €179 million despite winning four UEFA Champions League titles within the same time frame.

A club like Liverpool which have been very successful in recent years, have a net spend on transfer worth just €347 million in the last ten years. And a less successful club like West Ham United have a net spend of €374 million in the same time frame.
