The Most Expensive Premier League Players Of All Time
Money, money, money, the world of football is dominated by it and the Premier League is no different.
The inflation rate of a Premier League player’s price tag since the competition’s inception in 1992 is ridiculous. Had everyday items like milk and petrol inflated that much, they wouldn’t be affordable.
Milk would be £7.62 a pint and a litre of fuel £11.20, at an inflation rate of 1,721%!
Applying this information to the transfer costs of every Premier League player, who is the most expensive star to have ever graced the league?
Aguero, De Bruyne and Sterling have all arrived at Manchester City in recent seasons for large sums of money, but it’s not them.
Paul Pogba became the league’s most expensive signing in 2016 when he re-joined Manchester United for £86 million, but it’s not him either.
Take a look as we apply TotalMoney’s Transfer index theory and countdown the 25 most expensive players to have played in our great league.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2000 having impressed in Spain with Atletico Madrid.
