The current transfer world record stands at €222m.
That's the fee Paris Saint-Germain coughed up to sign Neymar from Barcelona back in the summer of 2017.
It's a price tag that still looks as extortionate as ever and it's one that likely won't be topped for quite some time.
So just how regularly has the transfer record been broken down the years? Well, since 1978, 17 different players have held the title of 'the world's most expensive footballer'.
Below, we've provided the names of those 17 men, the two teams they moved between and their price tag at the time.
Let's take a look at the timeline...

Between 1996 and 2001, the transfer record was broken SEVEN times.
But once Real Madrid coughed up €77.5m to sign Zidane, the record wasn't surpassed for eight years - until Los Blancos decided to splash the cash on Ronaldo.
Eight years after the Portuguese's €90m move to Madrid, PSG saw fit to sign Neymar for more than double that fee.
So the list above begs another question; which player will be the next to break the transfer world record?
Right now, Neymar's PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe and Erling Braut Haaland are the only two who have a realistic chance of joining the exclusive club.
Although given the financial implications of the Covid-19 pandemic, we can't see it happening anytime soon...
