To be quite honest I had a bit of downtime so I figured rather than wasting my time watching videos on YouTube, that I do something productive. I intended to write an article about something, but this year’s edition of the Champions League is kind of dull.
Don’t ask me how but I ended up researching total transfer values and made quite some surprising discoveries. A few players that don’t exactly scream world-class managed to accumulate a total transfer fee of more than 90.000.000€ despite being never considered one of the very best in his position.
Just to give you an idea how weird this list is…Kaka did not make it. Yes, Real Madrid’s second most expensive signing of all-time didn’t crack the top 10 whilst some others surpassed him quite easily.
If you have asked yourself how some clubs (my beloved FC Barcelona among them) can accumulate so much debt, this list shows you some of the most outrageous transfers ever sanctioned.
Please enjoy or rather look in shock how some of these players wind up being the top 10 most expensive signings of all-time.
