Barcelona used to pride themselves on not being like them; their arch rivals lording it up in the Spanish capital. But pull the other one: it’s got a Rakuten sponsorship on it.
Barça may have a certain style, glorious history and host games in an iconic stadium - but they’re as much a super-club as Real Madrid are these days. And they have the megabucks investment to prove it.
These are the 50 most expensive signings the Catalan club have made. To the best of FourFourTwo’s knowledge, anyway: sadly, we can’t crack open the Barça books to check the precise figures - and the exact price paid for a certain Brazilian is the subject of much contention. But these are the fees as we can find them.
We’ve also given you a selling club (Arsenal feature just the six times) and 10 minutes on the clock. Just fill in the surnames, let us know how you fared @FourFourTwo - then challenge your mates to see how they get on. It certainly isn’t an easy one...
