Man Utd overpaid on transfers by £210m – more than any other club in Europe

MANCHESTER UNITED are the biggest overspenders on transfer fees in the last decade.

A study conducted by the CIES Football Observatory found the Red Devils overspent by £210million on their 33 signings between July 2012 and November 2021.

United spent an eyewatering total of £1.4billion over the ten year period.

But the market value of all of the players they bought tots up to just £1.19bn, highlighting how much the club has overspent.

Their business in the summer was an example of that as £85.5m Antony alone arrived for a fee that was more than £50m above his value.

Paul Pogba and captain Harry Maguire also cost the club more than £80m – so it is easy to see how United have over splurged.

No European club in Europe’s top five leagues has been fleeced as badly although Juventus are a close second after overspending by £208m due to signings like Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain.

Paris St Germain are third with £142m and next is perhaps a surprise inclusion – Aston Villa – with £130m after spending big on Emi Buendia and Ollie Watkins.

The other Premier League clubs included in the top ten are Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton – with the London pair overspending by £120m and £114m respectively.

The Blues had to overpay in the summer to land the likes of Wesley Fofana and Marc Cucurella after missing out on first-choice targets like Jules Kounde.

French side Rennes one of eight clubs to have overspent by £100m or more, while German giants Borussia Dortmund round off the top ten with an overspend of £67m.

Some 36 clubs in Europe’s top five leagues actually underspent on transfer in the last ten years.

But only three of those sides play in the Prem – Tottenham, Wolves and Brighton.

Wolves lead the way after underpaying by £6m, while Spurs and Brighton made savings of £5m and £875,000 respectively.
