The Swede, 30, was already the most expensive player in the history of football based on the cumulative transfer fees spent on his services - based on calculations made by Sport360 - but he has stretched the mark even further with yet another high-profile switch.

PSG becomes Ibrahimovic’s seventh club in his fifth European league, and signing the striker never comes cheap.

His first major move saw him leave Ajax for Juventus for €16m in 2004, before two years later moving to Milan to join Internazionale in a move worth just shy of €25m.

After three successful years Barcelona bought the striker in a complicated exchange deal involving Samuel Eto'o worth well in excess of €60m, only for the Swede not to fit into manager Pep Guardiola’s plans.

He returned to Italy with AC Milan, first on a year’s loan, and then permanently on a €24m deal, before confirming his switch to France yesterday.

Despite his nomadic existence, Ibrahimovic has been successful wherever he goes, winning eight league titles in a row between 2003-4 and 2010-11.

Of the list of 10 players to have racked up career transfer figures in excess of €95m or more, six have had stints in the Premier League.

Perhaps the most surprising name on the list, however, is Robbie Keane. The striker had just a League Cup triumph to his name by the time he left Tottenham for LA Galaxy earlier this year, but had still been bought for fees totalling €109.2m over the course of his career to put him seventh in the all-time list.

As he moves to Paris, Ibrahimovic’s days of commanding major transfer fees may be drawing to a close, but with nearly a €50m gap over his nearest challenger, Nicolas Anelka, the record may be his for a while yet.

Ibra is footballer most expensive player 864045


special mention should go to Anelka, the previous record holder, whose largest transfer fee was 22.3mil

Hmm... Where's Messi? Isn't he the best player in the world? Shouldn't he be the most expensive? hmm Maybe he's not. scratch

Keane accumulated like €40 million of that during that six month loan to Liverpool.

If he gets sold for 191,300,001 euros before Ibra is sold, then Messi would be top.

Lol. I could see QSG making a bid that high just so Messi is the most expensive player.
