Although the summer
transfer window remains
open for about two more
weeks, there have already
been plenty of high-profile
moves across the continent.
Barcelona paid a hefty
transfer fee for Luis Suarez, Paris Saint-Germain
spent big on David Luiz, Manchester City splashed
the cash on Eliaquim Mangala, while Manchester
United made Luke Shaw the most-expensive left-
back - and teenager - in history.
Elsewhere, Real Madrid lured Toni Kroos and James
Rodriguez to their squad to further increase the
value of their team after the record-breaking buys
of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in recent
The Santiago Bernabeu side's heavy spending in the
past few seasons saw them field a starting XI which
has cost them close to €500 million in transfer fees
in the European Super Cup win over Sevilla.
With Bale, Ronaldo and James, Madrid have three
creative players for whom they paid a transfer fee
of at least €80m, yet they have spent relatively little
on their defensive options - an area PSG have
certainly not overlooked.
Here, Goal takes a look at the most expensive
players in each position based on the transfer fees
paid for them, with the total value of the most
expensive current XI sitting at €668m.
Between the sticks, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi
Buffon is the most expensive player following his
€51m move from Parma in the summer of 2001.
At right-back, Barcelona's Dani Alves makes an
appearance, having joined his current team from
Sevilla for a reputed fee of €35m in 2008.
Paris Saint-Germain made David Luiz the most
expensive defender in the world earlier this
summer when they paid Chelsea €50m for the Brazil
international, only for Manchester City to spend
even more on Eliaquim Mangala last week, with
Porto receiving €30.5m for 56.67 per cent of his
rights, making for a total transfer fee of €53m.
England international Luke Shaw takes the left-back
spot following his €37m transfer from Southampton
to Manchester United this summer.
The two holding midfielders in our 4-2-1-3 are
Bayern Munich's Javi Martinez, who left Athletic
Bilbao for €40m in 2012, and Zenit St Petersburg's
Belgium international Axel Witsel, who cost the
Russians the same fee.
Colombia international James Rodriguez earned
himself an €80m move from Monaco to Real Madrid
following his sublime performances at the World
Cup to become the most-expensive attacking
midfielder in the world.
Up front, a trio of La Liga stars represent the
attackers for whom the highest transfer fees were
paid in the history of the game. Real Madrid
splashed out €100m to lure Gareth Bale away from
Tottenham last summer, having previously paid
€94m for Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester
United. New Barcelona signing Luis Suarez
completes the XI following his €88m move from
Liverpool earlier this summer.
Players who miss out in the most expensive XI
despite commanding impressive fees themselves
include Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kaka, Edinson Cavani,
Radamel Falcao, Fernando Torres, Neymar, Hulk,
Sergio Aguero, Juan Mata and Thiago Silva.
