Leicester City Least Of The Big Spenders
Mon 23rd May 2016 | Money & Finance
Leicester City spent the least on player transfers according to figures released by CIES today.
The newly crowned Premier League Champions spent on average £1.8m (€2.7m) per player.
Conversely, relegated Newcastle United could not avoid the drop despite having the 8th costliest line-up at £6.1m (€7.9m) per player.
The figures reported by the CIES Football Observatory showed Manchester City at £21.3m (€27.5m) and Manchester United at £20.1m (€26.8m) had the most costly assembled squads in the Premier League. However, this was dwarfed by Real Madrid with the most expensive line-up in European football at £24m (€32.2m) per player.
These were followed by Paris St-Germain (€27.0m) and Barcelona (€23.7m) whilst Champions League finalists Atlético Madrid ranked 13th (€8.8m).
Of the four other major European championships, the most positive and negative gaps between the position in the transfer cost ranking and that achieved in the final table were measured for Las Palmas (+6) and Valencia (-9) in Spain; Angers (+8) and Marseille (-10) in France; Mainz (+10) and Hannover (-9) in Germany; as well as for Empoli (+7) and Palermo (-5) in Italy.
