The Most Expensive Footballers of All Time


This article is published in collaboration with Statista

by Martin Armstrong


Chelsea's signing of Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan this week for €115m has made the 28-year-old the most expensive footballer of all time. Not to be mistaken with the highest single transfer fee, Lukaku's five career transfers now total €327.6m, according to figures from Transfermarkt.com. That takes him ahead of Brazilian superstar Neymar, who has generated tranfer fees to the value of €310.2m in his career so far, albeit with only two moves.


That's not the only record broken with this transfer, either. Transfermarkt adds: "The forward set two further records. In addition to the most expensive sale of a Serie A club...Lukaku is also the new record signing at Chelsea. This position was previously held by Kai Havertz and goalkeeper Kepa with €80 million each. Furthermore, Lukaku joins a group of now twelve players who have cost at least €100 million."
