About the Ranking
For the 7th year in the row, we hand you our list of the top clubs with the biggest transfer budgets available at the start of the 2020-2021 season. This means that the available funds have been influenced by the recent 2020 summer transfer window, 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 renegotiating contracts, to be able to keep a positive balance. Learn how to make budget adjustments below.
