Researchers Think They Know Who Will Become The First £100m Player

Researchers Think They Know Who Will Become The First £100m Player

Paul Pogba just fell short of the somewhat dreaded £100 million price tag in 2016 when he signed for Manchester United in a deal worth a reported £89 million from Italian side Juventus.

It was, and forever will be, one of the most talked about transfers in years gone by, but it still begs the question - who will become the world's first £100 million signing? and how soon will this deal come around?

According to researchers from Bwin, the company have worked out who will become the very first and they've really gone into the finer details to work it all out.
