Barca's 10 Most Expensive Sales In History

With Brazil international Paulinho recently becoming the third player to leave FC Barcelona in this transfer window, here are the Blaugrana's 10 most expensive sales in their history.

Click through the gallery above to see FC Barcelona's 10 most expensive sales ever, according to Marca.

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have confirmed the Brazilian will return to his former club Guangzhou Evergrande for a season-long loan, after which the Chinese club will pay €50 million (R788 million) to make the deal permanent, according to Marca.

The fee is the third-highest the Catalan club has ever received for a player, the highest being the €222 million (R3.5 billion) the 2017/18 LaLiga champions got for Neymar from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

The team's second-most expensive sale was Portugal legend Figo's transfer to arch-rivals Real Madrid back in 2000. Los Blancos were forced to pay €60 million (R945 million) for the winger, who was quickly branded a traitor by Barca's fans as a result.

The Spanish side's fourth-largest sale was Chile international Alexis Sanchez, who moved to Arsenal for €40 million (R630 million), while in fifth place is Cesc Fabregas, who cost Chelsea €33 million (R520 million) in 2014.
