When it comes to football gaming, two really stand out above the competition.

For the average gamer, EA Sports' FIFA is the choice, with many fans of the beautiful game spending hours building the best squad possible on Ultimate Team.

Then, for the more hardcore football lovers, there is Football Manager, with the 2018 edition of the game set to land on November 10.

It is a hugely addictive game, with a lot of people getting caught up trying to take a team like Barnet into the Champions League.

However, some choose the easier route and pick a decent Premier League team to start their management career off.

Signings are crucial if you intend to follow this route and Football Manager have already released the 10 players who will cost the most in England's top-flight.


 A lot of the big names feature but amazingly, there is no place for Dele Alli, Alvaro Morata or Mesut Ozil. The latter can probably be understood a lot more than the first two.


No qualms here, the Dane is an absolute superstar right now and in the real-life market, is probably worth a lot more.

9. SADIO MANE - £55m

Like Eriksen, the Senegalese winger is an established star in the PL now and again, Liverpool would probably ask for way more than double to let him go.


Bit of a bargain, right? Although, given his current form, I bet Man United wish that is all they spent on him this summer.



Is that it? Let's hope Barcelona's board don't play Football Manager...


Well, Man City were eager to pay £3m more than that on deadline day for the Chilean superstar, so that price is a bloody bargain.


5. HARRY KANE - £58m

Yeah, for his right leg maybe. The Tottenham man is arguably the best centre-forward in the world and is being mentioned in the same breath as £200m these days.

4. PAUL POGBA - £66m

Just the £23m short of what United forked out to buy him back from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

3. EDEN HAZARD - £70m

On his day, he's the PL's best player and if he ever leaves Chelsea, you can bet it'll be for more than £70m.


He may still be the one of the most lethal strikers in world football, but even in the current market, splashing £75m on an ageing, injury-prone striker would be a tad silly.



The Man City midfielder is deservedly top of the pile after his stunning 2017. PSG are rumoured to be interested in him and if he were to join the Ligue 1 side, it'd probably be for way more than that quoted amount.
