The most expensive player in the history of the sport and one of the most talented to play football, Neymar created history when Paris Saint-Germain splurged €222million to sign him from Barcelona in 2017.

The 29-year-old has been brilliant on the pitch when fit, scoring 86 goals in 113 appearances for them - but there is a feeling among many that he has not made full use of his talent in Paris.

2. Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain) - €70m

Marquinhos has over time established himself as one of the best defenders in the world and is without doubt the best centre-back in Ligue 1. He has been immense for PSG ever since joining them in 2013 and has now become their leader and an inspirational presence on the pitch.

The Brazilian is only 26-years-old and PSG will need to ensure that they can keep hold of him before the other European giants make a move for him.

3. Casemiro (Real Madrid) - €70m

Nicknamed the "Tank", Casemiro is without doubt one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and one of the first choice picks for both Real Madrid and Brazil.

The 29-year-old has played a key role in the Los Blancos four Champions League and one LaLiga title win and it will be interesting to see how his career progresses in the next five years or so.

4. Alisson Becker (Liverpool) - €65m

Alisson is not having the best of seasons by his high standards, but this is arguably just a minor blip in his career as there is no doubt that he remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

The 28-year-old and Liverpool will look to hit back next season and get back to the summit of world football.
