And it's no surprise to see that Neymar, having been the subject of two big-money moves, leads the way with €310 million - beating Cristiano Ronaldo's total of €230 million from his transfers to Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus respectively.

The top two are pretty much givens but you might be shocked to see that both Angel Di Maria and Alvaro Morata, regarded as flops in the Premier League after joining from Real Madrid, are in joint third place.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes in fifth with €169 million accrued from his various high-profile transfers, while Philippe Coutinho (€161 million), Gonzalo Higuain (€159 million) James Rodriguez (€140 million), Ousmane Dembele (€140 million) and Romelu Lukaku (€138 million) complete the top ten.
