Paris Saint-Germain made Neymar the most expensive player in the world in 2017 when they paid Barcelona a staggering €222million for his signature. The Brazilian has so far only played for three clubs in his career, but still tops the list by accumulating €310.2m just in transfer fees.

Widely considered as one of the greatest players in the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo has accumulated €230million in transfer fees so far and it is safe to say that he has been worth every penny spent on him.

The 36-year-old who has attained legendary status at Manchester United and Real Madrid is currently playing for Juventus, where he has been his usual brilliant self, scoring 101 goals in just 133 games for them so far.

3. Romelu Lukaku - €212.5m

Romelu Lukaku could move to the top place on this list soon after it emerged that the striker is on the verge of completing a move to Chelsea and will return back to Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian has already played for a number of clubs in his career so far, though there is no doubt that he has established himself as one of the best strikers in the world ever since moving to Inter Milan in 2019.

4. Alvaro Morata - €189m

Alvaro Morata might have his detractors, but there is no doubt that he is talented and is prolific in front of goal, as seen by how top European clubs always choose to sign him.

He struggled during his time at Chelsea, but has been a decent goalscorer for the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus.

5. Angel Di Maria - €179m

One of the most underrated players of his generation, Angel Di Maria has been brilliant for every club he has represented, with the exception of Manchester United - for whom he was very poor.

The winger continues to excel on a regular basis for both club and country, and will excepted to perform the same in the upcoming season.
