Real Madrid is known for its galactico signings. One such signing was Gareth Bale from the premier league team Tottenham Hotspurs. He completed the move back in the 2013/14 season for €101m and proved his worth in the Laliga. However, things fell apart in the recent seasons as he was underperforming continuously and became a liability for the team. Hence, he made a return to his boyhood club on loan for the 2020-21 season and put up a decent show for the Coys.

10. Paul Pogba (€105.00m)

The 2018 World Cup winner is the most expensive player ever in Manchester United history. He broke the premier league record for the most expensive player back then when he made a move of €105.00m from Juventus. The French midfielder was an absolute star at Juventus and had a market value of €70.00m. Manchester United paid €45m more than his market value to acquire his services. Although he hasn't produced performances up to the mark, he had a decent contribution in each of United's seasons.

9. Eden Hazard (€115.00m)

One of the most exciting talents that the world look up to was Eden Hazard. He impressed everybody when he played for Chelsea. As a result, he was considered one of the closest replacements to Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid. Hence, Real Madrid brought in another galactico and it is their most expensive buy to date. The Belgian left Chelsea to join Real Madrid in the 19/20 season for a club-record fee of €115m. But things didn't go as planned, Hazard looked like a completely different player and failed to deliver day after day. Injury played its part too and to conclude, it has been a tough few seasons for him.

8. Cristiano Ronaldo (€117.00m)

Cristiano Ronaldo's transfer news stunned the whole world and put Madrid fans in a state of shock. The then 33-year-old made a record transfer move to Juventus from Real Madrid for €117m in the 18/19 season after winning the Champions League for a record 5th time in his career. Ronaldo was the most expensive buy-in Juventus history and was also the only player to carry such an expensive price tag at the age of 33.

Manchester City made the move of the window after they signed the ever-impressive Jack Grealish for a whopping fee of €117.50m. Manchester City broke the premier league record of the most expensive transfer in history, previously held by Manchester United's Pogba. The Aston Villa star attracted people's attention after producing magical performances for Aston Villa day in and day out. However, doubts remain on where the mid-fielder would slot in with the likes of De Bruyne, Torres, Foden already in the team. Jack Grealish supposedly refused a higher salary from Aston Villa in order to play for Manchester City. According to multiple reports he wanted to win titles and there's no better place than Man city to do it.

6. Antoine Griezmann (€120.00m)

The FC Barcelona and Antoine Griezmann transfer saga were some of the most awaited transfers in football. Although the French international joined the club in the 19/20 season, he was very close to joining the club in the 18/19 season. However, he decided to turn down Barcelona back then and made a full documentary to reject the club. In the following season, he joined Barca for €120.00m from Atletico de Madrid and became the third-highest expensive transfer in Barcelona history.

5. Joao Felix (€127.20m)

Atletico Madrid the 19-year-old wonder kid from Benfica. The Golden boy signed for the reds for a whooping €127.20m and is the most expensive transfer in Atletico Madrid history. He joined the side in the 19/20 season and the circumstances suggest that Atletico used the Griezmann money to sign Felix. He is also the youngest player ever to score a UCL hat trick.

4. Ousmane Dembele (€135.00m)

Dembele is one of those examples where the price tag got to the player and affected their performances. The youngster was just valued at €33m in the market in the 17/18 season. But Barcelona paid nearly 4 times the market value to Borussia Dortmund for the French winger. The transfer news regarding Barcelona signing Dembele for €135.00m drew much criticism and rightfully so. However, he has plenty of time left to prove his worth, injuries have always been a problem for him.

3. Philippe Coutinho (€135.00m)

Another expensive Barcelona signing that didn't go as planned. Philippe Coutinho came with a huge price tag of €135.00m on his back from Liverpool. The attacking mid-fielder never really flourished in the Blaugrana colours as he used to do for the reds in Anfield. His poor run of form continued and Barcelona was forced to send him out on loan to Bayern Munich. Bayern added salt to Barca's wound as they will go on to win the UCL in 2020 with Coutinho scoring a brace against Barcelona in the UCL semis.

2. Kylian Mbappe (€145.00m)

PSG made their first record signing in the form of Kylian Mbappe. They signed for €145.00m from Monaco in the 2019/19 season. His market value at the time was nearly €120.00m. PSG broke its bank to get the 19-year-old, Mbappe still remains the most expensive teen transfer in football history. The World Cup winner hasn't looked back since then, he is breaking records after records with his goal-scoring abilities and has been the stand out man for both his club and national team.

1. Neymar (€222.00m)

Every headline around the world was covered with only one name that day 'Neymar'. He broke every record in the football world and emerged out as the most expensive player on the planet. His market value at the time was €100m at Barcelona, and PSG paid more than double of the market value (€222.00m) in order to bring the Brazilian to the team. Although their main motive was to win the UCL, they lost the final in 2020 to Bayern and that's the closest they have been to that silverware.
