Football’s an expensive game – especially when it comes to transfer time.

In 1975, Italian forward Giuseppe Savoldi became the first £1 million transfer when he moved Bologna to Napoli, and four years later Nottingham Forest became the first English side to pay seven figures for a player, bringing Trevor Francis from Birmingham City.

Since then the stakes have been well and truly raised with a ridiculous £80 million move from Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo. Since then, over ten players have sold for £50 million or more.
