The Premier League is on the verge of breaking the record for summer spending.
The Premier League appears on track to very nearly break the record for the largest summer transfer window spending.
Premier League managers have already spent £1.22 billion with three weeks left until the transfer deadline, and with more deals still to be completed, they are on the verge of breaking the previous record of £1.43 billion spent on new players in 2017.
The top clubs in the top division don’t appear to be cutting back on their spending, despite the possibility of a global recession.
Marc Cucurella joined Chelsea from Brighton last week, making him the fourth player to cost more than £60 million this summer.
The other three superstars with prices over £60 million this summer are Richarlison, Erling Haaland, and Darwin Nunez.
However eye-watering those numbers may be, it appears that there will be many more high-profile transactions in the future.
Amadou Onana, a midfielder for Lille, is almost ready to be acquired by Everton for about £34 million, while Manchester United is still interested in signing Frenkie de Jong, a center back for Barcelona, for what is thought to be about £40 million.
Wesley Fofana, a defender for Leicester, is also a target for Chelsea, but the Foxes are holding out for a staggering £85 million.
