    They were using that as a compliment compared to the other big leagues where the numbers are much bigger, all that is down to though is that the PL brings in much more money, and shares it out better.

    Based on this player values list apparently:

    https://football-observatory.com/IMG/sites/b5wp/2018/265/en/

    I remembered our current squad cost(at that time) from an article last season was around £765m or so.
    https://www.transferleague.co.uk/sq...-did-each-club-spend-on-their-current-players

    It needs updating for this season since players have come and gone. I tried working the new total out myself.

    Squad players in:
    Rodri £68m
    Cancelo £60m
    Angelino £5m
    £133m

    Squad players out:
    Kompany £8m
    Danilo £27m
    Delph £10m
    £45m

    So using transferleagues figures it would come out at £853m(953m Euros). Higher than I expected but still not 1bn.

    Having said that I think Transferleague's figures are too high to begin with. Looking at BJL's post in the media thread, it seems like transferleague are either using inflated figures or are including none squad players. £782m appears to be a much more accurate squad cost and that could even decrease in the next few years.

    Simply put any publications reporting it as the squad cost rather than the squad value, is spreading incorrect information.

    On a serious note, who cares. Can hardly say we have had bad value for money, we are winning trophies and playing football at the highest level. We also don't and have never (Tevez aside) sold a world class player. Other clubs get picked apart, we don't. Shove your net spend trophy.
