5 Top Expensive Football Players Transfer in 2020

Football being one of the best sports most people love with great urge. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, all kind of sports was called off, but thankfully it is back better than ever.
There were still some few deals that were completed for transfer of players from one club to another. Let's have a look at the 5 top most expensive players transfer made in this summer 2020.

1. Kai Havertz: From Bayern Leverkusen to Chelsea at £72m
Chelsea has been put under a transfer ban last season which meant they were unable to sign any players. However, they have successfully made up for the lost time by spending over £220m this summer, the most expensive player of which being Kai Havertz.
The huge amount was calmly negotiated between the clubs, but Leverkusen eventually accepted the £72m up front with significant add-up set to come into play further down the line for the German playmaker who is generally regarded as one of the finest products of his generation.

2. Arthur: Barcelona to Juventus - £64m
In one of the strangest transfer deals in recent memory, Barcelona allowed talented midfielder Arthur to leave for Juventus for £64m while signing 30-year-old Miralem Pjanic in return for just £10m less.
The Brazillian hasn't made much of an impact yet on the Bianconeri, but given time he should be an excellent addition for Andrea Pirlo's new-look side.

3. Victor Osimhen: Lille to Napoli - £63m
Victor Osimhen became a hot transfer property in Europe following his performances for Lille in the 2019/20 campaign. While nearly every elite club in England were linked with his signature, most notably Liverpool, Napoli proactive in their pursuit of the Nigerian and quickly shelled out the £63m asking price.
He is yet to score for his new club, but looked sharp and engrained in Napoli's way of playing in the big 6-0 win over Genoa.

4. Ruben Dias: Benfica to Manchester City - £61m
Even though the deal was in the works beforehand, Manchester City's 5-2 embarrassment at home to Leicester further emphasised their need for a commanding centre-back, most likely to partner Aymeric Laporte.
Pep Guardiola has a shoddy record of signing defenders, so there is an element of a Hail Mary about this one. Should it not work out, and City fail to land any silverware this season, could it really be curtains for the legendary Spaniard? He can't throw money at the defensive issues forever...

5. Miralem Pjanic: Juventus to Barcelona - £54m
Miralem is a very good player and has been for a while, but Barca had already agreed to this odd deal involving Arthur prior to the 8-2 demolition from Bayern in the Champions League.
Between that and Pjanic signing they got a brand new head coach in Ronald Koeman. Would that deal have been done with the Dutchman in charge? Considering he spent the entire window trying to sign Gini Wijnaldum from Liverpool, probably not.
