A study conducted by CIES Football Observatory highlighted which clubs have spent the most during the various transfer windows to set up their respective teams. The ranking is authentic to 2019 and adds up the costs for the purchase of each player in the squad. Manchester City is the only one to break through the one billion euro ceiling while Juventus is the only one to enter the Top 10. At the European level, SSC Napoli is in thirteenth place.
In the Top-5 European Leagues Ranking in the top 10 positions we find 6 teams from the Premier League, which also counts Manchester City in first position, La Liga with 2 of the best teams in the world, namely Real Madrid and Barcelona then to complete the PSG in 2nd place which makes it clear the intentions of the Parisian team to emerge and then to complete Juventus in 8th position, while strangely the Bayer Munich European Champion in the Champions League remains out
Limiting ourselves to Italy, SSC Napoli is ahead of Inter (439) with a squad that cost a total of 467 million euros, almost 130 less than Juventus, and therefore in second place. After the first three, the void: AS Roma spent 303 million, AC Milan 255, but above Atalanta BC are just ninth, even behind teams that have always finished behind in recent years such as Fiorentina and Torino FC.
A further analysis makes us understand that these are the top 10 of Serie A and we note that despite Atalanta’s good performances in Europe and in the Serie A, the Orobica team ranks in 9th place behind teams like ACF Fiorentina and Torino FC, which by spending more they cannot get good results in the field. Another consideration is the strong growth of SSC Napoli which is positioned in 2nd place in front of much more noble teams and with much greater capacity from a financial point of view such as Inter de Milan, AS Roma and AC Milan who are always the teams historically for importance superior to the Partenopei.
