Pogba1. Paul Pogba

Juventus to Manchester United, 2016

The French midfield maestro may change his hairstyle more often than his shirt, but under all those crazy cuts there’s no denying he’s one of the finest footballers of his generation. He began at Man Utd and Mourinho has now dug out the chequebook to bring him back to Old Trafford for a world-record fee.

Transfer fee: £89 million

Gareth Bale

2. Gareth Bale

Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid, 2013

When the Welsh wizard left White Hart Lane for Real Madrid’s Bernabeu in 2013, his transfer fee smashed the previous record and his disappearing ponytail broke the hearts of Spurs fans everywhere. We’re not sure how much Real coughed up in transaction fees, but if they’d used Azimo  to send their money, it would have cost less than a couple of tapas.

Transfer fee: €100 million

Azimo fee: €2.99

ronaldo3. Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United to Real Madrid, 2009

Ronaldo, Bale’s striking partner at Real Madrid, is Portugal’s equivalent of Brand Beckham and he’s even got his own museum (more trophy gallery, actually) dedicated to him on his home island of Madeira. He cost a fortune in 2009, but he’s earned his keep – he’s Real’s all-time leading goalscorer.

Higuain4. Gonzalo Higuain

Napoli to Juventus, 2016

Argentine striker Higuain was a force to be reckoned with last season, breaking the Serie A record with 36 goals in 35 matches before heading north to arch rivals Juventus for a staggering €90 million – not a bad deal for a man who’s nearly 30. Whether he can keep his magic touch going in Turin remains to be seen, but at least he’s secured a decent pension pot.

Transfer fee: €90 million

Azimo fee: €12

Luis Suarez5. Luis Suarez

Liverpool to Barcelona, 2014

Suarez left Liverpool for Barcelona in 2014 and has since confirmed his billing as one of the world’s best players. He’s no golden boy, of course, with bans for biting and alleged racial abuse, but Barca were buying skills not smiles and the gamble has paid off – he scored 40 league goals for them last season.
