The premier league is the wealthiest league in world football, but just how much has each club spent on the players in their current squad. In the 2018 2019 season Manchester city has the most expensive squad costing £766 million while Cardiff City has spent the least on their squad of players at £47million ,which is less that some clubs have paid for a single player.
It's interesting to track individual clubs squad costs over a number of seasons. For instance Chelsea's squad cost has remained pretty constant at around £400 million every season since the 2012 - 2013 season, while most other clubs have increased dramatically especially in the last couple of seasons as T.V. income dramatically increased. Chelsea's current squad cost £394 million and their most most expensive squad was the 2015 - 2016 squad which cost £446 million.
Of course it is debatable about whether the price of a player or cost of an entire squad has much bearing on their performance and final league position. The 2015 - 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City won the Premier league with a squad which cost £58.8 million to build.
