Many Premier League teams have spent millions of euros in the 2022 summer transfer window. Pep Guardiola has further extended his lead in the list of coaches who have spent the most transfer fees in football history.
Pep Guardiola has spent over 1.2 billion in the transfer market since he started his managerial career, while Jose Mourinho has spent at least one billion euros despite the fact that he started his coaching career before Guardiola. However, Pep Guardiola’s most expensive signing was Erling Haaland. He signed the Norwegian professional for 60 million euros. Apart from
Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, there are three managers who have spent over 900 million euros in the transfer window. Diego Simeone, Massimiliano Allegro, and Carlo Ancelotti are the managers in question.
However, Ancelotti reached the 900 million mark because Real Madrid signed Aurelien Tchouameni for 80 million euros this summer. Diego Simeone might become one of the billion-euro managers if he makes one or two high-priced signings this summer. Antonio Conte’s most expensive signing in the 2022 summer transfer window was Richarlison. He is just 45 million euros away from spending 900 million euros as a manager.
Other managers who made the list of the top ten coaches with the most expenditure in football history have spent over 650 million euros in the transfer market but less than 850 million euros. Jurgen Klopp, Manuel Pellegrino, Unai Emery, and Ernesto Valverde are the coaches in question.
Jurgen Klopp, who recently entered the top ten list, has spent over 650 million euros in the transfer window. His most expensive signing in the 2022 summer transfer window was Darwin Nunez. The former Benfica forward has already scored four goals in Liverpool’s first three pre-season games.
