Ever since the transfer of the Brazilian star, Neymar, from Barcelona to PSG with such a whopping amount there has been talks around every corner about the huge amount involved.
We choose a whole team of players bought by Premier League clubs this summer (including Lindelof, Bakayoko, and Salah) which would cost less than the £199million PSG spend to buy Neymar.
On the other hand, we can make a whole team out of that price. It features two of the most expensive defenders in Premier League history, Chelsea’s second biggest ever signing and a player who might turn out to be Liverpool’s star man next season.
GK: Asmir Begovic (£10m, Chelsea to Bournemouth)
RB: Victor Lindelof (£30m, Benfica to Manchester United)
CB: Harry Maguire (£17m, Hull City to Leicester)
CB: Michael Keane (£25m, Burnley to Everton)
LB: Sead Kolasinac (free, Schalke to Arsenal)
CM: Jack Cork (£10m, Swansea to Burnley)
CM: Tom Cleverley (£8m, Everton to Watford)
CM: Tiemoue Bakayoko (£40m, Monaco to Chelsea)
LW: Mo Salah (£34.7m, Roma to Liverpool)
RW: Sandro Ramirez (£5.2m, Malaga to Everton)
CF: Jermain Defoe (free, Sunderland to Bournemouth)
TOTAL COST OF THIS ENTIRE TEAM: £179.9million
