It is no surprise to see Chelsea in second place on our list of biggest net spenders.

Bankrolled by Roman Abramovich, the Blues are now one of the wealthiest clubs in the world, and have the trophy cabinet to prove it.

Since the Russian arrived in west London, Chelsea have claimed four FA Cups, three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
