The Most Expensive Football Transfers in January 2022
We show the 10 most expensive deals in the winter transfer period in this article. Newcastle United is represented two times – after all, the money has to get around. Let’s see if your favorite footballer made the list of most expensive player transfers in January 2022.
- Julian Alvarez
River Plate ➡ Manchester City
Transfer fee: 17 million euros
Julian Alvarez is considered one of Argentina’s most promising players. The 22-year-old was reportedly courted by many European clubs, with Manchester City ultimately making the offer. After signing him, the Skyblues loaned the attacker to his former club River Plate until the summer.
- Rodrigo Bentancur
Juventus ➡ Tottenham
Transfer fee: 19 million euros
Tottenham was desperate for reinforcements in the winter and helped itself twice on Deadline Day at Juventus Turin. In addition to DejanKulusevski, who was initially only loaned out, the Spurs signed Rodrigo Bentancur.
The transfer fee for the midfielder could rise to as much as 25 million euros due to bonus payments.
- Yuri Alberto
Internacional➡ Zenit St. Petersburg
Transfer fee: 20 million euros
Fans in Europe are unlikely to be familiar with Yuri Alberto, as the 20-year-old attacker has so far only been active in his native Brazil. However, the scouts of Zenit St. Petersburg are so convinced of the youngster’s qualities that the Russians are willing to pay 20 million euros for him. In the future, another four million euros could be added as bonuses.
Dynamo Kiev ➡ FC Everton
Transfer fee: 23.5 million euros
Until this transfer period, Mykolenko had never played for any club other than Dynamo Kiev. But the Ukrainian left-back could not resist the call of Everton FC – the Toffees lured the 22-year-old to Goodison Park for over 23 million euros.
- Lucas Digne
Everton FC ➡ Aston Villa
Transfer fee: 30 million euros
Mykolenko’s arrival cleared the way for Lucas Digne, who had fallen out with Everton’s former coach Rafa Benitez. Aston Villa pounced, forking out a whopping 30 million euros for the left-back. A lot of money – but a strong transfer for Steven Gerrard’s team.
- Chris Wood
Burnley FC ➡ Newcastle
Transfer fee: 30 million euros
Somewhat heretically, you could say that Newcastle United put ten million euros on the table for each goal Chris Wood scored this season. The attacker has scored just three goals for Burnley FC this season.
Now he is to help Newcastle to new glory. Is the 30-year-old New Zealander the right man for the job?
- Bruno Guimaraes
Olympique Lyon ➡ Newcastle
Transfer fee: 42 million euros
The most notable transfer that the newly rich Newcastle could tie down this winter is that of Bruno Guimaraes. The Brazilian had turned into a top player at OL and is expected to shape the Magpies’ new era in the future.
- Luis Diaz
FC Porto ➡ Liverpool FC
Transfer fee: 45 million euros
The already high-caliber offense of Liverpool FC has become even more high-profile in the winter. Because with Luis Diaz, the Reds signed perhaps the best player outside the top European leagues. The transfer fee of 45 million euros can rise to as much as 60 million euros due to bonuses.
- Ferran Torres
Manchester City ➡ FC Barcelona
Transfer fee: 55 million euros
Financial bottlenecks or not: FC Barcelona pulled a transfer coup out of the hat in the winter by looing Ferran Torres from Manchester City. For the Catalans, this was the first major step on the road back to their former glory.
AC Florence ➡ Juventus Turin
Transfer fee: 81.6 million euros
Many top clubs were keen on DusanVlahovic, but the Serbian quickly made up his mind: for him, only a move to Juventus Turin was an option! The Bianconeri returned the interest and secured the services of the most promising center forward in the world of soccer for over 80 million euros.
