The transfer market is one of the most anticipated periods both by clubs and by fans to reinforce the squads. Over the years we have seen an increase in prices and exorbitant amounts have been paid for a transfer.
Today in 90min we are going to see who have been the most expensive players in each of the lines.
He was destined to be a goalkeeper to dominate a decade, even Real Madrid had him signed but Zidane stopped the transfer process to trust Keylor Navas. After surprising the world under the sticks of San Mamés, Chelsea was the one who bet on him by paying €80M. The story was beautiful, but the pressure got to the Spaniard, his performance began to plummet and Edouard Mendy overtook him on the right. To this day he is the substitute goalkeeper for the blues.
You can dream of a joke, but no. The most expensive defender in history is Harry Maguire. Manchester United have not been lucky with their bets and proof of them is the level they have been giving in recent years. He has been the captain of Manchester United but with the arrival of Ten Hag the captaincy will go to De Gea. His level as a central defender is not even in the Top 10 best central defenders in the world.
After several soap opera summers where Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United were fighting over him, he returned to what was his home before shining at Juventus. He returned to the Red Devils under the hashtag #Pogback. The Frenchman was back and the entire Theater of Dreams was waiting for him to arrive to put United back where he deserved, but the reality has been totally different. We could say that Pogba has failed at Manchester United. His €105M have not been up to his standards. This year he will leave as a free agent in search of new adventures.
He was the player who made all the prices go up. In the summer of 2017, the Brazilian headed to Paris to stop being in the shadow of Leo Messi at Barcelona. PSG paid €222M in exchange for a player who was willing to dominate football for years to come. The low competitive level of Ligue 1 and the injuries have weighed him down and he has not been able to give the performance that was expected of him. The long-awaited Champions League away from Barcelona has not yet arrived for Ney.
