The Premier League’s might, the backing of states or oligarchs, the impact of the pandemic and financial mismanagement within the establishment have all contributed to a narrowing of the field, with the four English clubs — Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea — Paris Saint-Germain and perhaps Bayern Munich now seemingly out on their own.

Champions League dominance has typically been cyclical and it was only a few years ago that Madrid’s success was becoming tedious.

Since the start of the pandemic, Premier League clubs have spent more than £1.7billion combined on transfers, while those in La Liga have actually recouped more than £170million.

English top-flight clubs spent close to £793m more than the next highest-spending league, Italy’s Serie A, over the summer, with City, United and Chelsea all adding expensive superstars to their squads.

Thirteen-times winners Madrid are in a healthier position but are nonetheless in transition.

Since their fourth win in five seasons in 2018, there have been three different champions and six different finalists.

You only have to look at the number of top players who moved to the Premier League or PSG from other established clubs to see where the power currently lies.
