Following Philippe Coutinho's big-money move to Barcelona, we take a look at the top five most profitable deals in football transfer history.
Phillipe Coutinho just signed a deal with Barcelona. Initial contract is, supposedly, 142 million pounds heavy deal between Barcelona FC and the 25-year-old winger from Brazil.
Another Brazilian footballer - Neymar - is a record holder for the most expensive transfer ever made in history of sports - 222 million pounds!
The 24-year-old Paul Pogba was not so cheap either, being transferred to Manchester United for little less than 90 million pounds.
Ousmane Dembele is the 20-year-old from Vernon, France who is currently playing for Barcelona Football Club, and he was transferred from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 for a staggering 90 million pounds.
And last but not the least is Gareth Bale of Real Madrid. This winger was transferred from Tottenham Hotspur for about 80 million pounds in 2013. For example, Real Madrid paid for Cristiano Ronaldo the same amount, just 4 years earlier.
