    World record football transfer fees



    Alf Common

    Alf Common (front row, second left) is pictured in Sheffield United's FA Cup-winning team of 1902. Three years later the centre-forward, by then at Sunderland, became the first player to be transferred for 1,000 when he moved to North East rivals Middlesbrough. Common played three times for England, scoring two goals

    David Jack

    David Jack became the first man to be transferred for a five-figure fee when he moved for 10,890 from Bolton Wanderers to Arsenal in 1928. Inside-forward Jack, the first man to score at Wembley during Bolton's 2-0 FA Cup final victory against West Ham in 1923, helped Arsenal win the league title three times

    Luis Suarez

    Luis Suarez, a Spanish midfielder, not the Liverpool striker of the same name, became the most expensive player in the world in 1961 with his 152,000 move from Barcelona to Italian side Inter Milan. Suarez, who later managed Spain's national team, helped Inter Milan win the European Cup in 1964 and 1965

    Giuseppe Savoldi

    Giuseppe Savoldi, an Italian forward, became the first million-pound player when he was transferred for 1.2m from Bologna to Napoli in 1975. He scored 169 goals during his career in Italy's Serie A, although he was often overlooked for the national side and only won four caps

    Diego Maradona

    Diego Maradona is the only player to have broken the world transfer record twice. The Argentina forward first moved for 3m in 1982, when he left Boca Juniors in his home country and joined Spanish side Barcelona. Two years later he left the Nou Camp to join Italian club Napoli in a 5m transfer

    Ruud Gullit

    Ruud Gullit was the next man to be bought for a world-record fee, his move from PSV Eindhoven to AC Milan in 1987 costing the Italian side 6m. The Netherlands international spent six years in Milan, winning three Serie A titles and two European Cups

    Roberto Baggio

    Forward Roberto Baggio moved for 8m in 1990 when he signed for Juventus from Fiorentina. Baggio won the Fifa World Player of the Year award in 1993 and scored more than 300 career goals. He scored 27 times in 56 appearances for Italy and helped them reach the 1994 World Cup final, but missed in the penalty shootout as Brazil won

    Jean-Pierre Papin

    Jean-Pierre Papin moved from French side Marseille to Italy's AC Milan in a transfer worth 10m in 1992. The France international striker only spent two seasons at the San Siro but helped Milan win Serie A twice and the European Cup on one occasion, in 1993-94

    Gianluigi Lentini and Gianluca Vialli


    Italian clubs broke the world transfer fee record twice more before the end of 1992. First, Juventus paid Sampdoria 12m for striker Gianluca Vialli, before AC Milan spent 13m to sign winger Gianluigi Lentini from Torino. Vialli, who later played for and managed Chelsea, represented Italy 59 times, while Lentini was capped 13 times

    Alan Shearer


    England striker Alan Shearer joined his hometown club Newcastle United in July 1996 from Blackburn Rovers in a transfer worth 15m. Shearer had won the Premier League title at Ewood Park and spent 10 seasons at Newcastle, scoring 206 goals in 404 matches. Shearer is now a pundit on BBC's Match of the Day

    Denilson and Ronaldo


    The next two world records involved Brazil internationals. Striker Ronaldo (right) moved for 19.5m from Spanish club Barcelona to Italian team Inter Milan in 1997 before winger Denilson (left) signed for Spain's Real Betis from Sao Paulo of Brazil for 21.5m in 1998. The pair helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup

    Hernan Crespo

    Italy's Lazio were involved in the next two record-breaking moves. Their striker Christian Vieri joined Inter Milan in 1999 for 32m, before Lazio spent 35.5m the following year, signing Argentine forward Hernan Crespo from Parma. Crespo and Vieri later became team-mates at Inter, before Crespo joined Chelsea in 2003

    Luis Figo


    Luis Figo left Barcelona for rivals Real Madrid in 2000 for a record-breaking 37m. Portuguese attacker Figo, who played 127 times for his national side, spent five years with Madrid. He won four La Liga titles during his career, two with Barcelona and two with Real, and helped the latter win the 2002 Champions League

    Zinedine Zidane

    Zinedine Zidane, who helped France win the 1998 World Cup, moved for 45.6m in 2001 when he transferred from Italian side Juventus to Spain's Real Madrid. He scored the winning goal as Real beat Germany's Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in the 2002 Champions League final and helped Real secure the Spanish title in 2002-03

    Kaka

    The world record transfer fee was not broken for another eight years until Brazilian midfielder Kaka moved from Italy's AC Milan to Spain's Real Madrid for 56m in 2009. Kaka helped them win La Liga title in 2011-12, the Copa del Rey in 2010-11 and the Supercopa de Espana in 2012

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Real Madrid broke the world transfer fee record for the fourth successive time when they paid Manchester United 80m for forward Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009. Ronaldo was introduced to the fans at the Bernabeu with Portuguese legend Eusebio watching on. Ronaldo has scored more than 200 goals in four seasons at Real

    Gareth Bale

    85.3 million from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013.

    Ex-Aston Villa footballer Dalian Atkinson dies after being Tasered by police

    Former Aston Villa striker Dalian Atkinson has died after he was Tasered by police.
    The 48-year-old died around 90 minutes after he was hit by a stun gun while visiting his father's home in Meadow Close in the Trench area of Telford, Shropshire, at around 1.30am on Monday.
    Ernest Atkinson, 85, reportedly said that his son was agitated, while neighbour Paula Quinn said the ex-footballer appeared to be "almost staggering" in the street before he was Tasered.

    I have to say among the record-breaking transfers, KAKA was the most overrated and crappiest.

    Never understood the hype around this guy. Even at his best, he was simply above average, not exceptional, but he was so hyped up by the media for some stupid reason.

    Why Celtic fans showed solidarity with the people of Palestine



    We took a stand last night because we had to. This was an Israeli team, one whose town is built on occupied Palestinian land.
