Manchester United went on a huge spending spree this summer, as the club looks to quickly rejuvenate itself after a difficult period. Manager Louis van Gaal smashed the British transfer record to sign Argentine winger Angel di Maria from Real Madrid, while there were several other high profile arrivals – including Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw and Radamel Falcao.

10) Manchester City (€145 – 2010/11)
Roberto Mancini splashed the cash as financially empowered City chased trophies. The Italian signed Jerome Boateng, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Aleksandar Kololarov, Mario Balotelli and James Milner in the summer of 2010, while Edin Dzeko arrived in January the following year. City would go onto win the FA Cup, with Toure scoring the winning goal.
