The Top 15 Most Expensive Player Transfers In Football History

With Paul Pogba returning to Manchester United for a whooping sum, we take a look at the most expensive transfers in football history.

Paul Pogba has surpassed the £85m deal that saw Gareth Bale move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in 2013.

He re-joined Manchester United – which he left for Juventus in 2012 – after signing a world record five-year contract valued at £89m at the Old Trafford.

It’s the first time an English club will set a world record transfer fee, after Newcastle United paid £15m to sign Alan Shearer from Blackburn Rovers in 1996.
