The Premier League summer transfers by Net Spend

Pic Cash

Manchester United spending more than Manchester City, Chelsea blowing the opposition out of the water, and Arsenal in minus figures again joined by Tottenham in spending less than Norwich and Aston Villa. Southampton are above Liverpool. And where do QPR feature?

There are interesting facts a plenty in this summer's net spend league table.

In March we took a look at the 'staggering disparities' of the clubs in the Premier League by net spend over the past five seasons.

Manchester City predictably topped the table, spending £430.77 million on their way to reach the Premier League title, followed by Chelsea on £159.7 million.

By contrast at the bottom of the table were Newcastle on -£30.25 million, and Arsenal on -£31.3 million.

So with the summer transfer window now out of the way, it's time for us to take a fresh look at the big spenders and the thrifty dealers. 

Here are all 20 teams by order of net spend of their summer spending...

1) Chelsea: £79.5 million
