Certain players go for big money time and time again.
And the Telegraph have compiled a list of the most expensive 30 most cumulative transfer fees of all time…
A number of former Liverpool players feature very highly, and not all of them were successful on Merseyside!
Luis Suarez is in 8th with £99.04m spent on him in total, while Nicolas Anelka is in 6th at £108.26m – although we only ever had him on loan and never spent cash on him.
Robbie Keane is in 14th at £88.27m, with Liverpool infamously spending £20.4m on him in 2008, only to get rid a matter of months later when the January window opened…
Fernando Torres is at 17th, with £84.85m. We of course sold him for a then British record £50m to Chelsea in 2011.
Christian Benteke is 21st at £74.5m, with Liverpool spending and recouping around £32m on the Belgian the past two summers!
Angel di Maria is no.1, with a barbaric £152.15m spent on him so far, although he failed in the Premier League.
