Romelu Lukaku To Overtake Neymar To Become The Most Expensive Player Ever

Belgium striker, Romelu Lukaku, is set to overtake Neymar and become the most expensive player of all time in accumulated transfer fees as his £98million return to Chelsea nears completion.

The 28-year-old left Stamford Bridge in 2014 after a miserable three-year spell at the west London outfit that saw him fail to score.

However, he has since from strength to strength after moving on, scoring 177 times in all competitions, with 30 of those coming last season for Inter Milan as the club won their first Serie A title in 11 years under Antonio Conte.

Inter’s financial problems mean they have been willing to let a number of players go already this summer, including Achraf Hakimi and Ashley Young, with Lukaku’s departure on the cards for a while as the club looks to balance the books.

Cristiano Ronaldo is third in the all-time list of transfer fees and led the way before Neymar's move to PSG, with the megastar moving from Sporting Lisbon to United for £12m in 2003, United to Real Madrid for a then-world record fee of £80m in 2009 and most recently from Real to Juventus for £100m in 2018, which took his total to £192m.
