5 Most Expensive Players in Barcelona's History

Barcelona are rightly considered as one of the greatest and most successful clubs in world football and have signed a number of great players in their history. Here, we take a look at their five most expensive players in their history.

5. Frenkie de Jong - €75 Million

The most recent addition to Barcelona's midfield, Frenkie de Jong was signed by the Catalan giants for €75million, with his fee set to increase by a further 11m in add-ons. Widely considered to be one of the best young midfielders in the world, he has been compared to the likes of club legends, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta.


The Dutchman certainly lived up to his hype last season, playing a key role in Ajax's success where they won the domestic double and reached the semi-final stage of the UEFA Champions League.

4. Luis Suarez - €81.7 Million

Luis Suarez has been one of the best strikers in the world over the past decade or so and he has lived up to the €81.7million that Barcelona paid Liverpool for him in 2014. The Uruguayan has been a vital part of the club's success, scoring 177 goals in 247 appearances so far and helping them win four La Liga titles, four Copa del Rey's and the 2015 Champions League.

3. Neymar - €88.2 Million

The Brazilian was said to be a future superstar and certainly showed his talents to the world, scoring 105 goals in 186 games during a four-year spell at the Nou Camp, helping the club win two La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey's and the 2015 Champions League.
