With Harry Kane expected to leave Tottenham Hotspurs in the summer, there are expected to bids with the player set to become the most expensive player in the Premier League history.
It is reported that the player is valued at £150m by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and with Kane having expressed his desire to stay in England, Chelsea and the Manchester clubs have been muted as his next possible destination.
But with the prize, the most expected between Premier League clubs, we look back to the most expensive deals that involved two clubs in the English top flight.
- 5. Various (£50m)
A chunk of players has been sold at this prize between clubs in the Premier League. It was a record fee at some point but it has become a normal price in recent seasons. Players who have been transferred for these fees include Fernando Torres from Liverpool to Chelsea, Kyle Walker from Spurs to Man City, Richarlison from Watford to Everton, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace to Manchester United.
- 4. Riyad Mahrez (£60m)
That’s the amount Manchester paid Leicester City to rope the Algerian wizard from their ranks in 2018.
- =2. Romelu Lukaku (£75m)
When Manchester United needed a striker in 2017, they had to fork out a good sum to get Lukaku from Everton FC. The Belgian went on to bag 42 times in just two seasons he was at Old Trafford.
- =2. Virgil van Dijk (£75m)
After missing the Dutchman in the summer of 2017, Liverpool returned to Southampton for the services of Van Dijk in January 2018 with the deal proving to be one of the best for the club.
Van Dijk who has been injured for the most part of this season has gone to help The Reds to the Champions League final, where Liverpool lost in 2018 but won in 2019, and last season’s successful league title pursuit.
- 1. Harry Maguire (£80m)
Harry Maguire’s deal from Leicester City to Manchester United remains the most expensive deal done between two Premier League clubs. Since his arrival, United has now managed back-to-back Champions League football for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.
