Raheem Sterling £49m move to Manchester City may make him the most expensive player under 21 ever (via Independent), and the most expensive Englishman of all-time (via Manchester City’s official website), but he does not make it into the top ten most expensive transfers ever, according to the Telegraph.

Here is the top ten in full:

10. Radamel Falcao – Atletico Madrid to Monaco (£51m)

Before he was a struggling striker that could only manage four Premier League goals during a loan spell with Manchester United, the Colombian was one of the most feared forwards in the world. After enjoying a productive spell at Porto, Falcao moved to Atletico Madrid where he managed 52 goals in just 68 La Liga games. That form was enough to persuade the Ligue 1 side to spend £51m in 2013. While he boasted an impressive strike rate in France, injuries have meant that he has made just 20 appearances for the club. A loan spell with Chelsea may be his final chance to prove that he hasn’t lost his touch.

9. Edinson Cavani – Napoli to Paris Saint-Germain (£55m)

In the same summer that Falcao moved to France, Edinson Cavani was carving out a similar move, but this time with Paris Saint-Germain paying Napoli £55m to sign the powerful forward. He had been equally as ruthless in front of goal, with 78 goals coming in 104 Serie A games. Unlike Falcao however, he has been a success for the French side, and has been largely able to justify his fee. Despite playing in a slightly wider role, with Laurent Blanc preferring to use Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a central position, he has hit the back of the net 34 times in 65 top flight games.
