10 most expensive Premier League players ever: Where does Virgil van Dijk Liverpool transfer rank alongside Manchester United & Chelsea spending sprees?

6) Kevin De Bruyne – £55m

City’s club-record signing, BBC Sport claim Kevin De Bruyne cost the Sky Blues £55m to bring in from Wolfsburg back in the summer of 2015.

The Belgian has arguably been a bargain, though, becoming one of the best attacking midfielders in Europe since then, particularly under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.

Angel Di Maria Man United

5) Angel Di Maria – £59.7m

Another expensive flop, Angel Di Maria may have lasted just one season at Manchester United, but he remains one of the most expensive Premier League players ever.

BBC Sport list his transfer fee as £59.7m, but that proved a big waste as things never really worked out for him in England. The Argentine winger is now at PSG, looking somewhere near his best again.

4) Alvaro Morata – £60m

Chelsea spent big on a Spanish striker again this summer, with BBC Sport reporting they paid Real Madrid a club-record £60m for Alvaro Morata.

Thankfully, this one’s worked out rather better than Torres, with Morata looking a decent replacement for the departing Diego Costa up front.
