Watch: Vincent Kompany – the bargain of the century

In a world where nation states are funding £200million deals for Neymar, it’s rather incredible to think Manchester City once paid just £6million for Vincent Kompany.

Since arriving at the Etihad Stadium in 2008, the Belgium international has established himself as one of the best centre-backs in the world, while captaining the Citizens to two Premier League titles and playing a pivotal role in their progress in the Champions League.

£6million wasn’t a huge sum of money even nine years ago, so Kompany’s incredible City tenure proves there are still shrewd deals to be had in the transfer market. Probably not deals as shrewd as this one though – quite simply, the bargain of the century.
