About the Ranking
For the 6th year in the row, we hand you our list of the top clubs with the biggest transfer budgets available at the start of the 2019-2020 season. This means that the available funds have been influenced by the recent 2019 summer transfers, as money has already been deducted.
Our ranking is primarily based upon clubs with the most money available for transfers when no adjustments have been made between wages and transfers, or the other way around.
It means that there might be more money available to allocate (primarily by reducing the wage budget), which in turn increases the remaining transfer budget. In some circumstances, adjusting and maximizing the transfer budget might affect the remaining wage budget negatively. The negative wage budget may force you to sell one or more players, or reduce your wage bill by re-negotiating contracts, to be able to keep a positive balance. Learn how to make budget adjustments below.
The numbers below will be rounded up to the nearest hundred thousand or the closest whole number. For instance, when transfer budgets are €4.999.999, we have rounded it up to €5Mill. We have decided to not include unplayable leagues which requires a database extension to unlock, such as clubs in Qatar, Saudi Arabia or Japan, and have restricted the list to the ones with a transfer budget higher than €5.5Mill.
