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:
- Manchester City – €1.08-billion
