1. Jude Bellingham (£115 million)
With three incredible years under his belt with Borussia Dortmund, Bellingham now has the task of finding his feet in a midfield with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. Can he become a Madrid great?
2. Jack Grealish (£100 million)
After a poor opening year with Manchester City, Jack Grealish was a mainstay in Manchester City’s treble-winning campaign this season, establishing himself as one of Pep Guardiola’s most important players, producing five goals and seven assists in the Premier League.
3. Gareth Bale (£85 million)
Despite a calamitous end to his career with Real Madrid, Gareth Bale became a legend at the club, producing 81 goals in 176 appearances and winning 15 major trophies, including five Champions League trophies.
4. Harry Maguire (£80 million)
Like Sancho, Harry Maguire has had a hard time dealing with the pressure of playing for Manchester United, falling out of favour under Erik Ten Haag following a poor run of fun. Maguire is expected to move on this transfer window.
5. Jadon Sancho (£75 million)
Jadon Sancho joined Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund in 2021 and has failed to establish a spot in starting eleven, producing five goals in 38 games in his first season and being plagued by illness and injuries last season.
6. Ben White (£50 million)
Ben White signed for Arsenal from Brighton in 2021, with many questioning his price tag. Although they signed him as a centre-back, White has made the full-back position his own and was crucial in Arsenal’s title charge last season.
7. Raheem Sterling (£49 million)
After signing for City in 2015 from Liverpool, ‘The Blues’ certainly got a return on their investment, with Sterling scoring 131 goals in 339 appearances, winning ten major trophies.
8. Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£49 million)
In and out of the team, mixed performances and injuries have affected Wan-Bissaka’s time at Manchester United since he joined in 2019. However, in the second half of the season, the defender looks sharper and has been positive in United’s return to the top.
9. John Stones (£47.5 million)
The signing of John Stones now looks like a steal for City, becoming a focal point in the heart of the defence and now regular in the midfield. There isn’t much Stones can’t do, and like Walker, he has won everything with City.
10. Kyle Walker (£45 million)
Kyle Walker made the £45million switch to Manchester City from Tottenham in 2017, winning everything you could win, completing the set with the Champions League victory in June.
