At the start of the year, Rafa Benitez said that keeping Newcastle United in the Premier League would be a “miracle”.

In a comprehensive look at the investment made in Premier League squads , Storey has crunched the numbers on the transfer fees paid for clubs ten most regular starters and United’s position is a reminder of the budget Benitez has been working with.



United’s current position of 15th puts them three places higher than their current spend but the table also emphasises the difference between the division’s haves and have nots.



Huddersfield – bottom of the Premier League – Brighton and Burnley have all spent more.

While Manchester City have spent £429million on their ten most regular starters, United’s outlay on the same ten was a mere £38million.

That makes them 18th in the Premier League, with only Cardiff (£18million) and Brighton (£37million) have spent less.

There is a bit of context required for the table, of course.
