CHELSEA have spent more than Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in the past decade.
However, Manchester City lead the way for transfers, splashing an incredible £1.35billion on players over the course of the last ten years.
The numbers have been compiled by Spanish outlet Marca.
And they claim that despite not being as rich as their Etihad counterparts, Chelsea have still been spending big under Roman Abramovich.
Some big arrivals include Fernando Torres from Liverpool for £52m in the 2010-11 season.
While £60m was spent on Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata last year and whopping £72m splashed on Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga over the summer.

However, Chelsea’s spending pales in comparison with City’s.
Pep Guardiola has spent plenty since his time at the club, with over £150m on three defenders alone last season.
And the numbers could be set to go up with reports claiming City will target Lyon’s Houssem Aouar in January.
The playmaker is also wanted by Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, but Guardiola has instructed club chiefs to offer as much as £54m for his signature.
