Man Utd spent £16.9m PER POINT as scale of woeful Premier League season revealed with Brentford on impressive £1.5m

MANCHESTER UNITED have the worst points-per-spend record in the Premier League this season.

The Red Devils paid big fees for Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo last summer with their total tally at around £126m – and that was just for one transfer window.

But United’s woeful performance on the pitch has meant they have a dreadful £16.9million spent per point.

With the likes of Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes also arriving for massive sums it has been an expensive endeavour for United to reach 58 points.

Brentford are showing the Red Devils how it should be done.

The Bees have 46 points this season and with just one more game to go they have spent just £1.5m per point.

Thomas Frank has built his squad on a tiny budget compared to the big six – with Brentford’s net spend also impressive thanks to big-money sales of players like Said Benrahma, Ollie Watkins and Neal Maupay in recent years.

Manchester City have spent more on their squad than their rivals United but have a lot more to show for it with 90 points from 37 matches and will win the title if they are victorious on Sunday.

That translates into £10.8m spent per point, which is still the fourth highest in the league behind Chelsea on £13.7m and Everton’s £12.5m.

The Toffees are one of the biggest underachievers this season and could still be relegated if they fail to win either of their last two matches.


Fellow relegation battlers Burnley and Leeds have spent very little comparatively, and have a point per spend of £3.6m and £4.8m respectively.

The two title contenders also differ considerably in their spending with Liverpool recording a points per spend of £8.2m and a much healthier net spend than City.

Antonio Conte has won a lot of praise at Tottenham since taking over and rightly so given their relatively low transfer outlay – spending £7.1m per point this term.

Norwich have the next best record after Brentford with £2.4m per point – but they have been relegated.
