Big clubs are charging exorbitant transfer fee to release their star players. In last three seasons, nine players have joined the elite list of €100 million transfer price and former Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho is the latest name to join the list with his €142 million move to Barcelona. However, former German legend – Rudi Voller believes that only Argentine international Lionel Messi is worth more than €100 million among current generation of players.
Voller told Suddeutsche Zeitung as Goal reports, “For me, there is only one player worth more than €100 million, and of course that is Lionel Messi.”
He is amazed by the news of exorbitant transfer fees paid for stars like Coutinho, Dembele, Mbappe, Pogba, Bale, and Neymar, but he adds, “I’m used to be amazed.”
Bayern Leverkusen’s sporting director is not convinced that current generations of stars match Messi’s skills and their transfer price is exorbitant. Although, Neymar currently owns the crown of being most expensive player in history of world football with his €222 million transfer move to PSG from Barcelona.
