Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the most expensive players in every position, according to Squawka.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is the most expensive shot-stopper in history, a title he has held since his €52 million (R817 million) transfer from Parma to Juventus in 2001 – that's right, 16 years ago.

Kyle Walker became the world's most expensive right back ever when he joined Manchester City for €57 million (R895 million) in this window. City also have the most expensive centre back in John Stones, who cost for €55.6 million (R873.9 million) from Everton last season, as well as the most expensive left back in Benjamin Mendy, who recently joined from Monaco.

The other centre back in the Squawka's combined XI is David Luiz, who left the Blues for Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €49.5 million (R778 million), although he has since returned to Stamford Bridge.

In defensive midfield is Tiemoue Bakayoko, who signed for Chelsea for €45 million (R707 million) in recent weeks from Monaco, and in front of him is his countryman Paul Pogba, who is currently the most expensive player in history, costing Manchester United €105 million (R1.6 billion).

James Rodriguez, who cost Real Madrid €79.8 million (R1.2 billion) from Monaco after the 2014 FIFA World Cup, is the most expensive central attacking player, while Gareth Bale is the most expensive right wing eve after Los Blancos paid €100 million (R1.5 billion) to buy him from Tottenham Hotspur.

Cristiano Ronaldo is at left wing, having cost Real €94 million (R1.47 billion) in 2009, while Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is the striker, with the Bianconeri having paid €90 million (R1.41 billion) for him at the beginning of the previous campaign.

Neymar is likely to knock Ronaldo out of position in the coming days, however, as he is set to cost PSG a massive €222 million (R3.4 billion).
