The current transfer market window may not have yet hit those heights but there is strong evidence of growing fees among the world’s biggest clubs.

Last month’s 57 million euro transfer of English defender Kyle Walker from Tottenham to rivals Manchester City raised eyebrows, given his reputation as a strong defender with few “star” qualities.

And while the cash rich English Premier League has been prominent this year with several transfers exceeding 40 million euros, China has also started to flex its financial muscle.

Despite its reputation as a weak soccer team, Shanghai SIPG managed to bag Brazilian star Oscar for more than 70 million euros in December.
