Chelsea smashed their club-record transfer fee last week as Romelu Lukaku completed a £97.5million return to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan.
Despite splashing out nearly £100m on bringing Lukaku back to the club, Chelsea are not the Premier League club that have spent the most so far this summer.
Both Manchester clubs, City and United, have spent over £100m, with the former breaking the Premier League record to bring in Jack Grealish for £105.75m.
Meanwhile, across the city, United have spent £112.5m in total – with Jadon Sancho [£76.5m] and Raphael Varane [£36m] both moving to Old Trafford this summer.
Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, who has seen his new club spend just £38.25m on Dayot Upamecano this summer, has now hit out at Premier League clubs for their excessive spending in transfer windows.
When asked if Bayern were set to make any more signings before the summer transfer window reached its conclusion, Nagelsmann said: “We will see.
“It is not easy to spend loads of money, we are not in the Premier League.
The summer window is ramping up as the Blues are chasing some big name and big money targets, so we want to make sure you’re always in the know.

“If it is possible then perhaps we will get in a new player. If not, it’s okay as well and we will work with the players that we have in our squad.”
Arsenal have also been big spenders this summer, albeit not splashing out as much as the aforementioned trio, with the Gunners accumulating almost £75m on three new signings.
Chelsea could look to bring in another signing before the transfer window shuts later this month, with Sevilla defender Jules Kounde the club’s top target as it stands.
However, the Seville-based club want the Blues to activate the France international’s £68m release clause, but the west Londoners are reluctant to do so.
