Football clubs seem to occupy an alternate universe when it comes to spending.

Be it squandering or saving, some sides need to rethink the way they are using their cash.

Astronomical sums were splurged over the summer months, with the Premier League alone parting ways with upwards of £630 million.

Across Europe’s "big five" leagues, gross spending was up on previous records. La Liga and Serie A each had an outlay of £335 million, Ligue 1 shelled out £315 million and the Bundesliga parted with a relatively modest £230 million, as reported by Deloitte analysts. 

However, in the UK, some Premier League sides shelled out less than £2 million over the summer months, when they should have been shopping for new recruits.

From the wealth of AS Monaco to spendthrift Newcastle United, we look at five clubs that need to shake up their spending. Ranked in no particular order, read on for more!
