The PSG broke the record for the most expensive transfer in history by hiring Neymar in 2017. An amount of 222 ME which will certainly be beaten in the future.
The transfer market has seen an inflation of transactions in recent years. The arrivals at PSG of Neymar (222 ME) and Kylian Mbappé (180 ME) in the summer of 2017 are just two examples among many. The crisis resulting from the coronavirus pandemic should, however, make this trend less frequent.
This does not mean, however, that nine-digit transactions will no longer take place. A view shared by Fabrizio Romano, a journalist renowned for his excellence in mercato news. The Italian even thinks that three players could beat the biggest transfer in history, that of Neymar to Paris.
Three young talents who are already among the best strikers in the world
“I think a player like Haaland, who is almost 20 years old and has already moved 25 million with his sale and has a 75 clause, can beat the record. He is like a robot. A machine. I am convinced that he is the striker of the future. Apart from him and Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan, you have no other young top striker.
I think both of them will “beat” Neymar in the future. I must also say Mbappé, the future winner of the Ballon d’Or. He has many options to beat the record for the most expensive transfer. I think Real Madrid will try to do this seriously with him,” he told Sport Bible.
In the meantime, Haaland with Dortmund, Martinez with Inter and Mbappé with Paris are martyring the defenders they meet on the pitch every weekend.
