Eight of the most overpriced players currently on the market.
Transfer fees in football look increasingly like going out of control in the modern game, with some absolutely mad prices floating about at the moment for some of the most wanted players in the game.
Still, clubs keep on spending vast amounts to get the players they want, with Real Madrid and Barcelona known for their ‘Galactico’ approach to the transfer market, while Manchester United also invested heavily in bringing in big names such as Angel Di Maria this summer.
According to various recent reports there could be more huge signings heading to Old Trafford in the near future, with some crazily expensive players said to be on Louis van Gaal’s agenda, with some of the most overpriced players on the market at the moment listed below:
8) Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion)
According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion’s young striker Saido Berahino – a top prospect, no doubt- is already valued by his club at an astonishing £30m! The 21-year-old has just 39 Premier League appearances and ten goals to his name, but could move for just £2m less than Chelsea paid for Diego Costa this summer.
