The assumption here is that there will always be 2 decimal places in the numbers.
The following removes all '.' and ',' and then converts to a number, divides by 100 to get the decimal back in the right place and then sums the column.

SELECT
      CAST(SUM(CONVERT(NUMERIC(19,2), REPLACE(REPLACE(YourColumn,',',''),'.','')) / 100) AS NUMERIC(19,2))
FROM yourtable

OK, this will take care of the case when there is a mix of number with 2 decimal places and numbers without decimal places e.g. 123.45 and 123

SELECT
      CAST(
            SUM( CASE PATINDEX('__[,|.]%',REVERSE(YourColumn))
                  WHEN 1 THEN CONVERT(NUMERIC(19,2), REPLACE(REPLACE(YourColumn,',',''),'.','')) / 100
                  ELSE CONVERT(NUMERIC(19,2), REPLACE(REPLACE(YourColumn,',',''),'.',''))
                  END)
      AS NUMERIC(19,2)) AS Total
FROM @YourTable
