This summer, the transfer market has literally turned upside down. We are used to seeing the Arab owners of PSG and Manchester City make transfers for exorbitant money. However, now those deals are made in the East: world-class players go straight to Saudi Arabia. Many sports publications in Europe are already predicting that soon the local championship clubs will be able to boast the most expensive squads on the planet and will reach the level of City and PSG. But do not rush, there was a club that managed to surpass them all. To whom this achievement was sent and which club currently has the honorary status of the most expensive in the world, we will now tell.

You will surely be surprised, but the most expensive team in the world is London Arsenal. The total value of the club’s players is 1.21 billion euros, let’s find out where these numbers come from. On July 15, Mikel Arteta’s team announced the signing of midfielder Declan Rice for a record amount for British soccer of 116.6 million euros. The cost of the Norwegian Martin Odegaard reached 90 million euros, and Bukayo Saka became the most expensive player in the team – 120 million euros.

Thus, Arsenal jumped from fifth position to the top, beating City (1.180 million euros), PSG (1.020 million euros) and Real Madrid (991 million euros).


It is also worth noting that English clubs generally dominate the ranking of the most expensive on the planet. In addition to Arsenal and Manchester City, who occupied the first two places, Chelsea is in sixth place. At the moment, the cost of Abramovich’s former club is 879.5 million euros.

The Premier League clubs are also ranked from 8 to 10: Manchester United (863.30 million euros), Liverpool (846.80 million euros) and Tottenham Hotspur (773.30 million euros). The total value of all the clubs that made it to the top 10 was almost 5.8 billion euros.

Among the Russian clubs, the most expensive, of course, was Zenit St. Petersburg. The cost of the players of the reigning champion of Russia is €150.9 million. However, despite their dominance in Russia, among the world blue-white-blue teams they rank only 71st. Although the St. Petersburg team could having been taller, their most expensive player, Malcolm, moved to Al-Hilal. Now the most valuable assets of Sergei Semak’s team are Wendel (24 million euros) and Claudinho (20 million euros).
