    yeah, though I thought it was widely accepted that KDB was £54m and Sterling £50m so not sure how they're above Laporte.

    Interesting we've only 2 in the top 20 but loads in the 20-50 range and yeah, mainly defenders.

    How much would the Figo transfer from 18 years ago be in today's money, must be close to £200m?

    Every time I click on a goal.com article it takes me to their homepage. Any way around that?

    Would be interesting to see a list of the transfers that covered the highest percentage of the buying clubs revenue that year.

    Pogba, Lukaku and Martial have the wrong figures if bonuses are supposed to be included.

    46 goals in 86 games for Juventus. His big game credentials are a question mark still but he puts up good numbers.
