Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers - May 2017
The top ten most expensive transfers table has seen a new entry already this month with Manchester City's capture of Bernardo Silva.
Moving to the Etihad Stadium from Monaco, Silva's transfer fee comes to a reported £43million, but even with that whopping transfer fee, he only comes into the table in seventh place.
With Manchester City's chase of Ederson from Benfica expected to be announced shortly, at a sum of £34.85million, he may well go down in history as the most expensive goalkeeper, but that won't see him enter the top ten of this table.
Whether any other deals rejig this list before the transfer window slams shut at the end of August remains to be seen, but with a combined total transfer value of £514.55million attributable to only ten players - it shows how mental the money aspect of the game really is.
Whether each of these players are actually worth what was paid for them...well you can make that decision yourself.
