Spending the most money on players does not guarantee Premier League success, says Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

The Italian cited both Manchester clubs after Man Utd spent a world-record £89m on midfielder Paul Pogba and Man City spent £47.5m on defender John Stones.

“It’s important to understand it’s not always who spends more wins,” he said.

“This season isn’t the only season both Manchester clubs have spent a lot of money. Look at the past”.

The Blues were third in Premier League spending summer after spending £123m on players including midfielder N’Golo Kante and defender David Luiz. Manchester City topped the list on £175m, while Manchester United parted with around £150m. Tottenham were fourth after spending around £70m.
