Can you name the 13 most expensive defenders?

Now everybody is well aware that money in football is absolutely through the roof. The record transfer fee at the minute is Paul Pogba at £89m from Juventus to Manchester United, surpassing Gareth Bale who signed for Real Madrid for just £3m short of that. It’s not only the fees that are ridiculous, but the wages which some players are being paid are just as mental. For example Carlos Tevez is pulling in £615,000 a week Shanghai Shenhua.

Other than goalkeepers, defenders are usually the least expensive position of players to buy. However this week we have seen a certain English defender become the most expensive defender. Kyle Walker’s move from Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester City for £53m means he now has that crown.

Whether the fee paid is indicative of the state of the current transfer market, or the value that top class defenders now have, is very subjective. Whatever Kyle Walker will be measured against that determines whether this spectacular fee paid will be deemed ‘worth it’ remains to be seen, but it is a price tag that will be heavy around his neck and shoulders as he makes those lung bursting runs up and down the right touchline in the forth coming English Premier League season(s) for City.
