This is Moneyball: The six juiciest football finance stories of summer 2019
The football season is back with bang but what happened off the pitch in the summer when it comes to money created major talking points. Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost pick six of the financial hot topics when it comes to football from the last few months to give their thoughts and opinions. This includes £1.4billion being spent in the summer transfer window, with half of Premier League clubs breaking their individual player transfer record – so who got the best deal? We've got confirmation of Wayne Rooney heading back to England, but why have the financials caused controversy? Bolton Wanderers and Bury are on the brink. What has happened, will they be saved and is Financial Fair Play working? Elsewhere, the Forbes rich list of sports clubs makes for interesting reading, the Chinese cash influence grows and women's football received a huge surge of interest meaning more money.
