Gareth Bale is currently the world’s most expensive player after he joined Real Madrid from Tottenham for £85.3m in 2013, eclipsing the £80m Los Blancos paid for Cristiano Ronaldo four years earlier.
And while that record is unlikely to be beaten this summer, it is likely that the £59.7m paid by Manchester United for Angel Di Maria could be.
United bought the Argentine in 2014 and while the fees paid for British clubs for the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and – subject to add-ons – Anthony Martial have come close to breaking it, the record still remains.
However, with Premier League clubs benefitting financially from a huge new television deal, there have been some big transfers touted this summer so talkSPORT looks at five that could well hold the title as Britain’s most expensive transfer by the end of the summer.
Click the arrow above, right, to see who could smash through that £59.7m record fee this summer.
