Transfer fees certainly have skyrocketed in the past quarter century.

It should be remembered that Argentina star midfielder DIEGO MARADONA set a new world record in 1984 when sold by Spanish club FC Barcelona to Italian side SSC Napoli for 5.0 million English pounds. Six years later, Italy World Cup star ROBERTO BAGGIO reset the bar with a move from Fiorentina to Juventus of Turin costing 8.0 million English pounds.

CRISTIANO RONALDO currently holds the honor for world record transfer fee with the 80.0 million English pounds that Manchester United charged Real Madrid for the Portugal World Cup striker.

For those who have misplaced the old calculator, the final bill for the playing staff of REAL MADRID comes to 486.80 million Euros, which is in the approximate neighborhood of 412.0 English pounds when converted at the time of writing.

Earlier this season, the blog added up the transfer fees for Sheik Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s MANCHESTER CITY team in England and arrived at a roster cost of 353.035 million English pounds; with respect to FC CHELSEA in London, the blog counted 241.659 million English pounds worth of price tags for Roman Abramovich’s players.

NOTES — The correct transfer fee paid by Real Madrid for France international midfielder LASSANA DIARRA is 20 million English pounds, and not Euros as originally listed. The same can be said for Spain World Cup champion midfielder XABI ALONSO, who was bought for 30.0 million English pounds. The figures have been adjusted to Euros on the above chart accordingly.
