MOST COMMENTED

Premier League clubs spent more during the January transfer window than their French, German, Italian and Spanish counterparts combined, ESPN reports, citing data from the Soccerex transfer review. The 20 members of England’s first division spent a net total of 150 million euros ($203.8 million), whereas the combined spending total of the other four major leagues was just 140 million euros ($190.2 million).

In the Premier League, Chelsea led the pack with a combined 52.8 million ($71.7 million) outlay on Nemanja Matic, Mohamed Salah and Kurt Zouma, but the West London club still finished the window in profit thanks to the sales of Juan Mata to Manchester United and Kevin De Bruyne to Wolfsburg. Mata’s $61 million sale was easily the biggest signing during the window, costing 20 million euros ($27.1 million) more than any other player.

In France, Ligue 1 clubs spent 53 million euros, while Italy’s Serie A spent 42 million euros, Germany’s Bundesliga 33 million euros and Spain’s La Liga just 12 million euros.
