Top 5: Who will be the world's first £100m star? (1)

Published 3 Comments

Gareth Bale's world-record summer move from Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur to Spanish giants Real Madid was reportedly worth a quite staggering £85 million.

Despite his obvious and explosive talents, that aforementioned fee shocked many and provoked much debate over the state of the game and its future sustainability. 

However, rather than appear to shock the footballing world into finally tightening their belts and returning to some sort of reality, it is widely thought that Bale's transfer may only have served to boost fees even further and surely it is only a matter of time before we see a player bought outright for a whopping £100 million price?

Here, GMS looks at five players who, should they ever move away from their current clubs, could be capable of commanding such an exorbitant fee.
