Man City Leads Premier League Clubs Top, Spenders


English Premier League clubs paid out more than £272.6m to football agents during the 2021/22 season, with the defending champions  Manchester City being the biggest spenders. Manchester City, who signed Jack Grealish for £100m last summer and secured a number of their star players on new deals, paid just over £35m to agents between 2 February 2021 and 31 January 202.

Manchester United (£29m) and Chelsea (£28.2m) followed the Premier League leaders with their big buys of Romelu Lukaku and Jodan Sancho respectively. Premier League newcomers Brentford were the lowest spenders after paying out £3.5m. Figures released by the Football Association show the total spend of £272.6m was a slight rise from £272.6m last year when Chelsea spent the most.
