Transfer Fee Investments: Serie A Overtakes La Liga

In the last few years, the clubs of the Italian League spent heavily on the market to strengthen their rosters.

The top European clubs are always the most active in every transfer session. The Premier League is definitely the reacher championship on a global level, but the clubs of the Italian Serie A are doing their best to be competitive and reduce the gap with their international rivals.

The Italian clubs do not just sit and watch but sharply increased their expenditures in order to be more competitive on the international stage, 4.1bn.

Although Juventus is leading the group of the Italian giants having invested 1,085 million in the last nine years, Roma’s expenditures from 2010 to 2018 reached a whopping amount, 809m.

Inter (748m), AC Milan (678m) and Napoli (579m) are there to testify that the Italian clubs are alive, healthy and with a great desire for revenge.
