A very high figure by a player that, to day of today, is section of the club by his charges of sexual crimes (... And if they had known it before). In any case, the 'top 10' of signings more expensive close it John Stones (55,6M) and Kyle Walker (52,7M).
By behind, they find players like Bernardo Silva (50M), Nathan Aké (45,30M), Ederson (40M), Ferran Torres (33,5M), Gabriel Jesus (32M), Danilo (30M), Gündogan (27M), Claudio Bravo (18M), Nolito (18M) and Julián Álvarez (17M).
