Top 10: Most overpriced transfer targets in the world (1)

Published 7 Comments

It's been a funny old year in terms of high-end transfers in football.

Perhaps the main talking point has of course been Gareth Bale's colossal £85million switch from Tottenham to Real Madrid, but there have been other eye-opening figures banded around as well.
