$1,738,257 – that’s the amount of money acquiring each point Manchester City has spent since they were taken over by Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) in 2008.

Sheikh Mansour has invested a whopping $766.6 million net on transfers since that September takeover six years ago – a period that has yielded two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup.

In analysis carried out by Arabian Business, Everton have been revealed as the most spendthrift club in the Premier League, making a total of $44.7 million from their transfer dealings – which means they actually earned just over $124,492 per point won over the same period.

We took the clubs that have maintained their Premier League status since 2008, calculated the net amount spent during the seasons from 2008 to 2014, and divided each dollar total by the number of points earned.
