Wrap up:

The list is entertaining yet heart stopping. Imagine a man is getting 100 million Euros as transfer money. The fans may feel happy so is the club and undoubtedly the man himself. But I find it mostly part of business than encouragement of a talent and valuing it correctly. There are numerous fresh talents scattered in this world out of recognition and wealthy teams makes the players a brand, more like a commodity to sell and earn big bucks.

I know with time the ‘most expensive transfers in football’ will make the list longer. But the lingering question will still remain. Should it really worth that much?
