Most expensive defenders in the world.

See top 10 most expensive defenders in the world. Interesting facts about them

10) Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Crystal Palace to Manchester United (€55 million)

With the Eagles, Wan-Bisaka already has some of the best defensive indicators in the Premier League. He is extremely good at taking the ball and his performances quickly caught the attention of Manchester United – a team that has not had a legible right back since the time of Gary Neville. The “Spider”, as he is nicknamed, quickly proved himself with the team of the “devils” and is the undisputed titular right defender for the club.

9) John Stones – Everton to Manchester City (€ 55.60 million)

Stones began his career at Barnsley, and in 2012 was promoted to the first team. After a season alone, he was attracted by Everton for 3.5 million euros. A few years later, the “caramels” sold the English national team to Manchester City for 55.60 million, which brought them an extremely good profit.

8) Benjamin Mendy – Monaco to Manchester City (€57.50 million)

Undoubtedly, Mendy exceeds all expectations for the success that can be achieved by a player who begins to study football in Le Havre. In his relatively short career, he has already become a two-time champion of England and once of France. The defender can also boast a gold medal from the World Cup.

7) Aymeric Laporte – Athletic Bilbao to Manchester City (€65 million)

We continue with a series of expensive defenders attracted by the “citizens”, which clearly indicates which zone is the most problematic for the team in recent seasons. Like any well-read Basque footballer, Laporte rises in the ranks of Bilbao, where he proves to be an exceptionally good defender. His performances are enough to attract the attention of Pep Guardiola, who attracted him for 65 million euros.

6) João Cancelo – Juventus to Manchester City (€65 million)

Joao Cancelo-Man-city

The Portuguese started his career in Benfica, but was quickly “caught” by the European giants. Cancelo was sold to Valencia in 2015, and for the next four seasons he played for Inter and Juventus before being transferred to Manchester City.

5) Ruben Dias – Benfica to Manchester City (€68 million)

Ruben-dias-Man-City

Ruben is only 23 years old, and is already establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League, and perhaps after years of searching, the “citizens” have finally found the man who will bring them permanent stability in defense.

4) Luca Hernandez – Atletico Madrid to Bayern Munich (€80 million)

Lucas Hernández - 4th most expensive defenders

One of the two transfers in this ranking that are not made by an English club. Luca is a product of the Atletico academy, with which he won the Europa League in 2018. After moving to Bayern, he lifted every available club trophy, and with his homeland France triumphed with the World Cup.

3) Virgil van Dijk – Southampton to Liverpool (€84.65 million)

virgil-van-dijk - 3rd most expensive defenders

It is known to a small number of fans that the Dutchman defended the colors of Celtic before arriving in the Premier League to play for Southampton. Virgil is a three-time champion of Soltandia, and in Liverpool he proved to be one of the top defenders in world football. The amount that the “reds” paid for him in 2018 is a record for a defender, but the money is undoubtedly justified.

2) Matthijs de Ligt – Ajax to Juventus (€85.50 million)

Matthijs de Ligt 2nd most expensive defenders

Matthijs de Ligt quickly proved to be the most promising talent of Ajax Amsterdam, after being selected as the “Best Talent of the Academy” in 2016. Other individual awards include the Johan Cruyff Award (2018) and the Golden Boy Award (2018). It was only at the age of 19 that he was even appointed captain of the club from Amsterdam, setting a record for the youngest captain in the eliminations of the Champions League. De Licht is already a champion in each of the championships in which he has played.

1) Harry Maguire – Leicester City to Manchester United (€87 million)

Harry Maguire  most expensive defenders

After years of suffering from a lack of a truly valuable central defender, the Red Devils have finally decided it’s time to pay a hefty sum so they don’t have to bet on the hesitant and prone to injury Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo. The player they focus on is Harry Maguire, who impresses with his performances in Leicester City and also helps England reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup. He is currently the most expensive defender in the history of football, after in the summer of 2019 United counted 87 million for his services. Right now he is the most expensive defender in the world.
