The Robins are definitely one of the clubs that have seen some big sales at the club throughout the years, especially as of late. Of course, those sums can hardly compare to the riches of the Premier League and top-flight in general but for a lower-tier side in today’s market, the figures they’ve managed to get are quite impressive.
And interestingly enough, the 2019/20 season ended up being a turning point and a campaign that saw records shattered on all fronts. In the summer of 2019, Bristol City acquired the services of Tomas Kalas from Chelsea for a reported fee of £8.1m, breaking the former record that was held by Famara Diedhiou’s £5.4m arrival from SCO Angers in 2017/18.
But the Robins didn’t stop there either. Sometime later, they also bought Han-Noah Massengo, the young and talented central midfielder from Monaco B, for a reported fee of £7.2m, which was enough to become their second-highest transfer to date.
Two of their other 2019/20 incomings were expensive enough to slot into the top ten: Nahki Wells and Kasey Palmer, who are now in fourth and seventh place respectively.
When it comes to departures, it is once again the 2019/20 campaign that stands out the most. Both of their most lucrative sales to date happened last summer as Lloyd Kelly was first sold to Bournemouth for £13.3m, breaking the previous record that was held by Jonathan Kodjia’s £11.5m sale to Aston Villa in 2016/17, and then Adam Webster’s £19.6m move shattered the record once again and remains as their most expensive sale in the history of the club.
The last decade or so has been quite an exciting time for Bristol City, both on the pitch and in the transfer market. Needless to say, there have been some incredible and impactful signings over the years and some the fans will remember for a long time.
We have to mention the likes of Josh Brownhill and Kalas, who is still their record-holder but has definitely been a huge bargain, or even Tammy Abraham who didn’t spend long donning their colours but was still an incredible addition to the squad.
And then there are players like Marlon Pack and the ever-present Korey Smith who seems to be at the centre of everything good happening at the club. Of course, there is also the old guard as well with the likes of Jimmy Mann or the record-breaker Alan Walsh as the Robins were lucky enough to have many legends trot their pitches over the years.
