The English top-flight has seen some gigantic transfers over the years and interestingly enough, the record has been broken several times in the past decade. Philippe Coutinho’s £130.5m switch from Anfield to the Camp Nou is still the top transfer around and given all the current outside circumstances, it’s bound to stay that way for a while.
Of course, Paul Pogba was breaking records before it was cool and Manchester United splashing £94.5m to get the Frenchman back to Old Trafford was an unbelievable piece of business back in 2016. Interestingly enough, Pogba hasn’t been the happiest camper around as of late and we may very well see him move once again sooner rather than later.
But before there were Pogba and Coutinho, Gareth Bale was the top dog around. In 2013, Galacticos had to spend £90.9m to take the Welshman to LaLiga. But just like Pogba, and Coutinho for that matter, Bale is not enjoying his record transfer and could be on the move again.
Needless to say, there have been some historic transfers in the Premier League over the years. Of course, it’s really difficult to pinpoint the exact best or most influential ones but we’ll give you some that are hard to miss.
Of the legendary players of yore, the likes of Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard and even Sergio Aguero in the modern days definitely come to mind. The current talismans of the Premier League could very well be Mohamed Salah, who arrived from Roma, Virgil van Dijk who broke the transfer record for defenders and Eden Hazard whose arrival to Chelsea marked a start of a great adventure for the Belgian and the Blues.
We can’t forget Cristiano Ronaldo who marked a great era at Manchester United nor the likes of Patrick Vieira, Alan Shearer, Eric Cantona, Wayne Rooney… There are too many to count!
