Top 10 players with the highest transfers in the world today


You probably are familiar with the names mentioned below but you will be surprised at the amount of money these famous players receive each time they move to a new club. 

Below will be the top 10 players with the highest total transfer amount in the world today.

  • Gonzalo Higuain with 143 million pounds

The Argentinian star is slowly stepping on the other side of his career but doesn’t forget that in the past he was one of the top goalscorers in the world, especially when playing for Napoli.

Higuain has spent 5 times changing his team. Starting a career at River Plate, he moved to Real Madrid in 2007 and competed here until 2013 before moving to Napoli for £35 million.

Then, after 3 years of playing in San Paulo, Higuain made Juventus spend 85 million pounds to recruit him. This figure helps Higuain secure a place in the top 10 players with the highest total transfer value.

  • Philippe Coutinho with 146 million pounds

The Brazilian striker joined Barcelona in early 2018 for £134 million. He is said to be a worthy replacement for Neymar. However, after only a short time, the Spanish press did not hesitate to assign Coutinho the label “the most frustrating player in the Catalan team history”.

 Coutinho was given the opportunity in many matches in both the Champions League and La Liga by coach Valverde, but he only angered the Catalan fans. In this season, the arrival of Griezmann will also reduce the star’s chances of playing.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 152 million pounds

“Great mercenary” – that’s what the world named the Swedish star’s career. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played for up to 8 teams in the career, most of which are big and famous teams. 

Not surprisingly, Ibra is one of the names that make the giants spend the most money. He has cost the teams up to 152 million pounds after 7 transfers and certainly, these teams do not regret it because Ibra can shine.

  • Antoine Griezmann with £157 million

Despite only 2 transfer teams, the total value of Griezmann’s transfer amounted to 157 million pounds. He arrived at Atletico Madrid from Real Sociedad for £46 million in 2014.

Then, 5 years later, the French star removed his shirt and went to Barcelona for 111 million pounds. However, Griezmann’s deal did not go smoothly. He and the Camp Nou team were entangled in the transfer scandal, in which Atletico announced to sue Barcelona.

  • Angel di Maria for 160 million pounds

Angel di Maria started his first European days in Benfica. After an impressive performance here, he was hired by Real Madrid for nearly 30 million pounds. At the Bernabeu, Di Maria shined brightly to help Real Madrid win the Champions League title for the first time after years.

Di Maria’s class made United spend up to £70 million to recruit him to Old Trafford. However, after only a year of disappointment, the “red devil” agreed to sell Di Maria to PSG when he left for £60 million. After 3 transfer teams, Di Maria has made the European giants spend up to 160 million pounds.

  • Alvaro Morata with £161 million

Alvaro Morata’s “transfer journey” is quite complex. He started his career from the Real Madrid youth team, then because he could not find his place here, Morata had to pack to Juventus.

Only after 2 years of shining at Juventus, Morata made Real spend quite a large amount to bring him back. However, after just one year, he moved to Chelsea for 60 million pounds. Morata didn’t last long at Stamford Bridge and he returned to Spain to play for Atletico Madrid.

  • Kylian Mbappe with 162 million pounds

The case of this young talent is quite special. Despite only changing the team once, it was a record signing for a teen star. PSG had to spend a total of 162 million pounds to beat many other European giants such as Man City or Real Madrid for the acquisition of young Monaco star.

And after two seasons playing for PSG, Kylian Mbappe has really proved his outstanding talent. Not Neymar or Edinson Cavani, it was Mbappe who made the most contribution to PSG’s dominance in Ligue I in the last 2 seasons.

  • Romelu Lukaku with 183 million pounds

The Belgian striker reached the top 3 of the table of players with the highest total transfer value after landing in Inter Milan on the last day of the transfer market. Before Inter paid £ 60 million for the Red Devils, Lukaku had Everton paid £ 32 million and MU had to spend £ 78 million to recruit him.

These huge numbers helped Lukaku collect a total of £ 183 million of the teams he landed in each transfer. In two years with MU, Lukaku played 96 matches and scored 42 goals, which are impressive numbers. Therefore, Inter fans are hoping that he will continue to shine in the new shirt.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo with 207 million pounds

The Portuguese superstar only needs 3 transfers to reach this number. He was first known for making Man United spend £ 15m to bring him to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon.

After 6 years of the boom at MU, Ronaldo stepped up to the superstar line when Real Madrid broke all transfer records of that time to bring him back for up to £80 million. With his level, CR7 almost no discount at all after nearly ten years of dedication to the Spanish royal team.

Last summer, Juventus had to spend up to £100 million to recruit Ronaldo even after he turned 33, which increased the total transfer of Ronaldo Kleen to 207 million pounds.

  • Neymar Jr with 279 million pounds

Although the Brazilian star has yet to reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo, he is “unmatched” in the ranking of players with the highest total transfer. After shining in Santos’ shirt, he made Barcelona pay up to 79 million pounds to recruit him to the Nou Camp.

After 4 years playing in Barcelona, Neymar wants to find new challenges and PSG is willing to help him do that. The French giant spent 200 million pounds to help Neymar “escape” from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 and made him the most expensive player in the world after breaking Paul Pogba’s transfer record.
