Controversial striker’s move set to cost more than first reported.

Luis Suarez’s summer move from Liverpool to Spanish giants Barcelona looks set to be the most costly move of 2014 as the deal looks set to reach around £199m, according to

Real Madrid 2015/16 XI
Arsenal Monaco statistical analysis

The Catalan giants may have only had to pay a figure of around £75million for the Uruguayan but when taking into account the range of additional fees during his five-year contract, Suarez’s move could potentially cost Barca up to £199m.

The deal will far outweigh 2013’s biggest move that saw Gareth Bale leave Tottenham Hotspur to join Real Madrid, which looks likely to cost the Spanish title contenders £158m.

Although Barca stand to spend the most on a single player, the 2014 Goal Transfer List calculates that Manchester United’s busy transfer windows in 2014 will eventually see the Old Trafford club having to part with close to £400m on the likes of Angel di Maria, Luke Shaw and Juan Mata.

Elsewhere Angel Di Maria’s move to Manchester United is set to cost them around £190.4m, and Arsene Wenger, who has been chastised for not spending enough will see his deal for Alexis Sanchez reach £133m.
