It’s good to be a football agent

Clubs splashing the cash on the middlemen. Not a story that gets enough attention:
1 Man City £12,874,283
2 Chelsea £9,562,223
3 Liverpool £6,657,305
4 Tottenham £6,066,935
5 West Ham £5,527,548
6 Arsenal £4,760,241
7 Wigan £3,576,972
8 Portsmouth £3,184,725
9 Bolton £3,166,611
10 Everton £2,008,407
11 Sunderland £2,007,040
12 Aston Villa £1,708,374
13 Blackburn £1,610,885
14 Hull £1,599,188
15 Man Utd £1,517,393
16 Fulham £1,469,258
17 Wolves £1,235,703
18 Birmingham £974,982
19 Stoke City £716,042
20 Burnley £468,398
Total £70,692,513
West Ham, Wigan, Bolton, Hull and Portsmouth really burned some serious cash which seems not to have served them well. Stoke City and Burnley on the other hand have done really well with their small amounts and so has Man Utd, who are surprisingly quite conservative with their agents fees. The worst offender is Man City which has parted with almost £13 million for a series of boring draws and an underwhelming 7th position.
£70m in total fees. You could buy a Kaka or a Burnley for that amount.
