The Italy Serie A Transfer Market In Figures

Regarding the money negotiated, the outs (players' sales or loans) exceeded 609 million Euros. Likewise, the expenses by acquiring players exceeded 614 million Euros. As we can see, the clubs have hired more than double the players they let go. However, the amounts entered and spent are relatively similar, indicating a tendency to sell highly-priced players and hire less expensive players. We will let the season progress. Then, we'll see how these transfers will benefit Italian clubs both sportingly and financially.
