By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s current squad was the 14th most expensive squad in Europe to assemble, according to a study.

The Rossoneri spent over €90million alone in the recent mercato bringing in six players: namely Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, Leo Duarte and Ante Rebic.

In addition to that, a combined €70m was spent in January on Lucas Paqueta and Krzysztof Piatek from Flamengo and Genoa respectively.

The CIES Football Observatory – via Football Italia – have conveyed the findings of their most recent study, showing that Milan’s current squad cost €408m.

Juventus have spent €719m on transfer fees and sit in fifth place, while Inter are one place behind Milan in 14th on €364m.

Manchester City spent €1.014bn to put their squad together, and are joined in the top five by Paris Saint-Germain (€913m), Real Madrid (€902m) and Manchester United (€751m).

Napoli’s squad comes in at €325m, with Roma behind on €254m, Sampdoria on €150m and Lazio €148m.

The average squad cost in Serie A was exactly the same as LaLiga at €167m, but still well behind the Premier League’s €345m.
