Premier League leaders Manchester City have the most expensive squad in history, according to a report published on Monday by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory.

The research values Pep Guardiola's squad at 878 million euros ($1.08 billion), with Paris Saint-Germain second on 805 million euros, after a January transfer window in which City acquired centre-back Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao for 65 million euros.

Neymar's world-record signing from Barcelona accounts for more than a quarter of the PSG total but Kylian Mbappe is only on loan, despite an anticipated transfer fee of up to 180m euros to be paid to Monaco at the end of the season.

Paris (AFP) - Premier League leaders Manchester City have the most expensive squad in history , according to a report published on Monday by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory.

That leaves Guardiola managing the costliest-ever collection of talent.

"When you want to compete at the highest level, you need to spend," Guardiola said last month.

"Some clubs spend £300, £400 million on two players. We spend it on six players."

Two other teams have spent more than 700m euros building their squads -- Manchester United (747m euros) and Barcelona (725m euros).

The rest of the top ten is made up of Real Madrid in sixth, Juventus in eighth and four Premier League teams -- Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton.

The researchers calculated that the average Premier League squad cost "a record high" of 291m euros, more than double La Liga's average of 131m euros.

Watching Manchester United sure is painful .
To be fair to Jose Mourinho, whatever his plan was, it was over within a few minutes. Ander Herrera started for Manchester United against Sevilla, and he had two jobs. One, the cover story, was to bustle around in midfield. And two, his real mission: along with Scott McTominay, he was there to ostentatiously not be Paul Pogba. A shame his hamstring went, really. When it comes to not being Paul Pogba, he’s a natural.
