Chelsea FC Over the Years
Chelsea has three times surpassed the record for the largest transfer price paid by a British club. Their £30.8 million acquisition of Andriy Shevchenko from AC Milan in June 2006 set a record for Britain until it was surpassed by Manchester City’s £32.5 million acquisition of Robinho in September 2008.
The club’s £50 million acquisition of Fernando Torres from Liverpool in January 2011 stood as the record until Angel Di Mara’s £59.7 million signing with Manchester United in August 2014. The club still holds the record for the most money ever spent for a custodian when it acquired Kepa Arrizabalaga in August 2018 for £71 million.
With Kai Havertz’s late penalty against Palmeiras on February 12, 2022, Chelsea became the first London club to win the FIFA Club World Cup. Chelsea surpassed the record for the most money spent in a single transfer window with a £289 million spending binge on eight new players, including the £107 million transfer record-breaking purchase of Enzo Fernandez.
