As the world’s most valuable team, with an estimated £3.2 billion in the bank, Real Madrid can afford to spend big money in the transfer market.

There’s no denying they have spent over the odds for some players, but that doesn’t seem to put them off.

Here’s the top 10 most expensive Real Madrid players.

10. Karim Benzema – £30 million


Madrid broke the bank in 2009 by signing the Frenchman from Olympique Lyon for £30 million.

9. Xabi Alonso – £30 million


Alonso is constantly linked with a move back to Liverpool, the club he left in 2009 for the Galacticos.

In 2014, the Spaniard left for Bayern Munich for a reported €10million.
