QPR and Chelsea: Among the big spenders

Struggling QPR paid the third highest amount to agents in 2012, their figure of £6,818,688 topped only by Manchester City and Liverpool.

But it was Rangers, who brought in a number of high-profile signings over the summer including Julio Cesar, Park Ji sung, Jose Bosingwa and Esteban Granero, whose payments stood out, with their figure having almost trebled from £2,499,214 in 2010/11.
