Man Utd & Barca: Biggest Net Spenders From Europe's Top Five Leagues Since 2012/13 Season

Over the years, numerous elite European clubs have engaged in strange transfers (where they spend a significant sum of money on a single player), who occasionally end up failing after just one season with the team.

 

Fernando Torres, a former top player for Chelsea who joined Chelsea for €50 million from Liverpool, is an example of a significant failure based on statistics and performance. We shall learn about other elite teams in this article that have made significant financial investments in players from the 2012–2013 season.

1.Man Utd.The Red Devils released their former academy graduate back to the Italian club for free after previously paying a sizable sum of money to buy them back into the club. Due to his success at Juventus, Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United in 2016 for a then-record-breaking €105 million (£89.3 million) transfer fee.

 

Up until 2021, no English club has ever paid a sum that large. He won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first year back. The English Premier League teams now hold the number one spot with transfer losses of -1.076 billion euros.

2. Manchester City.

 

After City won the English Premier League title in dramatic fashion in 2012, overturning a 2-1 deficit with two goals in stoppage time, the winning goal being scored by Sergio Agüero, they continued to bring in high-profile players.

 

As the second-largest net spenders among the top five leagues in Europe from 2012 to 2023, Pep Guardiola's presence at the Etihad Stadium has enhanced the City's purchasing power.The top ten teams in terms of net spending across the top five European leagues are Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan, Everton, Aston Villa, and Chelsea. These teams are ranked from third to tenth, respectively.

Following the Liverpool transfer, Mohamed Salah and James Milner have a new team rival.

Liverpool benefited this season from their proficiency in penalty shootouts. The team led by Jurgen Klopp advanced to three cup finals and won two of them on penalties, bringing the Carabao Cup and FA Cup back to Merseyside.Over the course of the two finals, the Reds committed a total of 17 penalties, and they converted all but one of them. Even the club's backup goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher scored against Chelsea in February.

 

James Milner is the team's official first-choice option, although Liverpool has a variety of great takers from which to choose. It appears that the team has gained yet another quality alternative this summer.

 

Milner has scored 17 of his 19 goals in the Premier League during the course of his career from the penalty spot. His power over his comrades is understandable given his background, experience, and behind-the-scenes leadership of the group.Mohamed Salah, who has also shown to be effective from the spot, is typically behind him. In the Premier League, the Egyptian international has taken 20 penalties, scoring 18 of them.

 

Beyond those two players, Klopp has a variety of other possibilities, with Fabinho in particular regarded as a composed finisher when called upon to do so. The Brazilian has taken 19 penalties in league games, scoring all of them, going back to his tenure as a designated taker with AS Monaco.The Reds are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to penalties because of the dependability of other players on the team, like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara, and Sadio Mane, to mention a few.

 

Darwin Nunez was acquired by Liverpool from Benfica this summer for an initial fee of £64 million, which could increase to £85 million in the future.With 32 goals across all competitions, the Uruguayan striker displayed exceptional shooting proficiency this season. The 22-year-27.2 old's percent conversion percentage in the Portuguese Primeira Liga was the highest of all players in Europe's top five leagues who attempted at least 55 shots.

 

Nunez gives the impression of being brutal in front of goal, and when given penalties, nothing seems to change. He has taken a total of 10 penalties for Benfica and Almeria since making his debut as a young player, scoring on each one. He hasn't recorded a miss yet.In his first season at Anfield, he's unlikely to replace Salah or Milner, but those two players might realistically go after their Merseyside contracts expire in 2019.

 

Nunez is certain to improve the team's ability in high-profile shootouts, regardless of whether Klopp chooses him first overall in the coming years.
