Report: Manchester-Based Clubs Have More Expensive Squads Than PSG

This summer saw Paris Saint-Germain corner the free transfer market and add players like Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Georginio Wijnaldum. 

Furthermore, they spent some money to address their needs at full-back as they brought in Achraf Hakimi for an initial fee of €60 Million from Inter Milan and a loan deal for Sporting CP’s Nuno Mendes.

PSG is adding this crop of talent to a squad consisting of Marquinhos, Neymar Jr., Kylian Mbappé, and Marco Verratti. CIES Football Observatory recently revealed a study dedicated to the most expensive rosters of the top five leagues in Europe. 

The Ligue 1 side finished in the top three most-expensive squads having a roster that costs €939-million. Only Manchester United and Manchester City have the more expensive sides. 

Here’s the list of the top ten list:

  1. Manchester City – €1.08-billion
  2. Manchester United – €1.023-billion
  3. PSG – €939-million
  4. Real Madrid – €787-million
  5. Chelsea – €780-million
