Over the last few years, transfer fees being paid for some of world football’s elite superstars have sky-rocked to levels never seen before.
Super-rich clubs have forked out extortionate sums of money to secure the signatures of world-class players in a bid to win titles and elevate their stature in the footballing world.
The rise had been constant over the last decade, with the last three or four summers especially seeing unprecedented transfer fees being paid for players.
The current global pandemic is and will continue to have a huge effect on the economy in football and when the game returns to some normality it’s likely that, at least for a little while, we’ll see a drop in the amount of money clubs have to splash out on players.
