This is three years old but shows that transfer fees have been going down in terms of whether a club can afford them or not. Of the top 20, only 2 came in the last 5 years. Some massive hyper fees since would probably have gone near the top, but Pogba to Man U was about equivalent to Torres and Shevchenko to Chelsea

The fact that only 10 years ago we sold Ronaldo i.e. the best player in the world for that same figure makes me uncontrollably weep... I don't even really rate Maguire. He's just a slightly better Phil Jones.


I like him and think he is a good player, but with that price tag comes a massive monkey on the back and I also don't think he is quite top bracket, nor does he have the potential to be world class.

Clubs all have so much money they have no need to sell for anything other than a massive price. If you're guaranteed income of 150m+ by being in the Premier League, are likely to be in the bottom 6 and that income would go down by more than half if you get relegated, why on earth would you sell your most important player for only 40m? Everyone thought it was mad to spend 50 on Sigurdsson, but I think it was proved that he was the difference between Swansea being a PL or a Champ team, and if anything that was too little.


But that doesn't stop players deciding that they want to leave and forcing the hands. If a player wants to move desperately they will make it happen. Yes clubs have more money now and they have no need to sell but it works both ways. It's why I think both Pogba and Neymar will go this summer and De Gea will become Man Utd's highest paid player.

Yes that is true. There is massive player power, they can now force moves fairly easily, and everything seems to be able to be done in advance now in comparison to tapping up scandals of 12-15 years ago, seems to be accepted now. Players and agents definitely have a large element of being in control, but clubs have loads of cash so they can a) afford massive fees really easily and b) have no need to sell for anything other than a massive fee

Players will force moves if they want them, at the end of the day the players have the power rather than the clubs themselves. Right now it's more about the clubs not trying to get low-balled, hence why Man Utd want 150m for Pogba, but ultimately it will be more like 100m. But the obstacle really is FFP. It does seem UEFA are trying to crack down a little bit more on this.

Kieran Trippier's move to Atletico Madrid feels like it has come out of nowhere! He'll have a better chance of winning trophies there i reckon.

Strange move but could be good for him.

Might be tough with Athletico facing Barca and Real in the hunt for trophies over there!
