Transfers: Manchester United, Juventus and PSG have overpaid their players the most since 2012

The race for the biggest trophies has sometimes led clubs to overpay certain players on the transfer market. In its investigation published on Monday, the CIES Football Observatory deciphered the movements of recent years by calculating the difference between the value of the player before the transfer and the sum finally paid by the club. Since 2012, Manchester United is thus the team that has overpaid its players the most, ahead of Juventus Turin and PSG.

For the 33 paid transfers assessed in the study, the northern England club spent 1.59 billion euros, or 238 million euros more than the estimated value of the players at the time of their transfer. For their part, Juventus and PSG both paid 1 billion and respectively overpaid their recruits by 234 and 162 million euros. Aston Villa (+149 M) and Real Madrid (+148 M) complete the top 5 of this ranking, ahead of Chelsea (+135 M) and Arsenal (+129 M).
