“Varane is 7th while his French compatriot Camavinga is 15th”

1NEWS – Currently, all competitions across the continent are suspended due to the international break regarding the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

And before a few internationals kicks off this week, we’ve both seen that the transfer window has closed and that some transfer records have been broken.

When viewed broadly, the French giants, Paris Saint-Germain are the main winners in this transfer market, where they have successfully brought in big names such as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and, most notably, Lionel Messi.

Fellow multiple-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, also moved clubs this summer. The Portugal icon left Juventus to return to his former club Manchester United after a 12-year absence. Despite his legendary status, 36-year-old Ronaldo left Turin with an upfront payment of just £13.5m from the Red Devils.

While there’s plenty of bargains to be had, quite a bit of cash is also being poured in.

On that note, the following is the ranking of the most expensive players in the 2021 summer transfer window as reported by Transfermarkt,

12. Rodrigo de Paul (Atletico Madrid – £31.5 million)

11. Martin Odegaard (Arsenal – £31.5 million)

10. Emi Buendia (Aston Villa – £34.56m)

The Argentine midfielder may have missed his country’s Copa America triumph over the summer but managed to secure a big money transfer from Norwich to Villa Park. The 24-year-old looks set to play a major role for Dean Smith’s squad this season.

9. Tammy Abraham (Rome – £36 million)

The 23-year-old struggled for playing time at Chelsea last year and now with the I Giallorossi, Abraham wants to be made by Jose Mourinho as the ‘new Drogba’.

8. Ibrahima Konate (Liverpool – £36 million)

Liverpool’s only major signing in the transfer window, the 22-year-old France Under-21 international could be a bid for the Reds if he fulfills his immense potential in the years to come.

7. Raphael Varane (Manchester United – £36 million)

The former Real Madrid man has won almost everything there is to be won on the football scene and today’s Red Devils fans will naturally hope that Varane can lift more trophies at Old Trafford.

6. Dayot Upamecano (Bayern Munich – £38.25 million)

Upamecano joined the six-time European champions this summer, having previously established himself as one of the best centre-backs in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

5. Ben White (Arsenal – £52.65 million)

The biggest signing of a busy transfer window for the Gunners, White has starred at the heart of defense for Leeds – and then Brighton – over the last few seasons. The north London team itself had to spend a lot of money to be able to get White’s service.

4. Achraf Hakimi (PSG – 54 million Pounds Sterling)

PSG may have done some fantastic business in terms of free transfers, but they have also parted for a significant sum to land Inter Milan right-back Hakimi. The Morocco international will be surrounded by some of the best players on the planet as the Parisian club pursue success both domestically and in Europe.

3. Jadon Sancho (Manchester United – £76.5 million)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally landed his target player this summer. The 21-year-old joins a roster of talent-filled midfield at Old Trafford this season.

2. Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea – £103.5 million)

The Blues paid nine figures for the strong Belgian forward for the second time, having allowed him to leave the club initially in 2014. It was a hefty fee, but the 28-year-old has already started to pay for it, scoring his first goal for Thomas Tuchel’s men against Arsenal in the second game of the Premier League.

1. Jack Grealish (Manchester City – £105.75 million)

Aston Villa didn’t want to lose their prized asset at any cost, but when City met the release clause of their £100 million contract-plus Grealish, the Lions management fell into disrepair. A British transfer record, the England playmaker is now part of a very strong midfield at the Etihad Stadium.
