Having ranked the European clubs best at making a profit on player transfers, one finds it's a long way down the list before encountering an English club.

AS Monaco are at the top, having sold Mbappé to PSG. Other notorious "talent monetisers" such as Athletic Bilbao, Lyon, Dortmund, Ajax, Benfica, and Lille feature in the top 20.
