There are a few things you'll notice when it comes to the fives players who have cost the most money in each of Europe's top five leagues.

Firstly, the same clubs tend to lead in each league. Barcelona were relatively monied from 2018 onwards, going on to spend ludicrous amounts of money, while Bayern Munich and Juventus are unsurprisingly the superpowers of their respective leagues. No one can compete with Paris Saint-Germain.

Secondly, there are transfers that trigger transfers. One big star moving is merely a butterfly spreading its wings in the football world's economy. If you remember who moved from A to B, the chances are you'll remember that A brought in a player from C for the same amount of money. 

Lastly, you'll notice that not all of these players were a success. Some lessons to be learned, perhaps, on how to wield great power when you have it...

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
