The English represented on the field a market value of the astronomical amount of 1.05 billion euros. This makes it the club with the most value in the world. PSG must ‘only’ be satisfied with 927 million euros.
Since Sheik Manzour made a resounding entrance to Manchester in 2008 by signing Robinho for 43 million euros, the fence has been closed. Thirteen years later, the Brazilian is only narrowly in the top 20 of most expensive purchases. In total, Sheikh Mansour spent more than two billion on transfers.
Most Expensive Players
Until this summer, Kevin de Bruyne was the most expensive player in the history of with 76 million The Citizens. The Belgian, who came over from Wolfsburg, had to lose out this summer to the Englishman Jack Grealish, for whom 117.5 million was readily paid to Aston Villa. The fact that the lack of both star players was hardly felt by the home team says everything about Guardiola’s team.
PSG, since 2011 in the hands of Qatar Sports Investments, has the most expensive transfer of all time with Neymar. Four years ago, the Brazilian was detached from Barcelona for 222 million. For Kylian Mbappe, 180 million was transferred to AS Monaco in 2018 with the same careless ease.
