Neymar became the world's most expensive footballer when he joined the Ligue 1 giants from FC Barcelona in a deal that would be worth €224 million (R3.7 billion) today, but he loses that title to Gianluca Vialli when the transfer fees are adjusted to consider inflation over the years.
Vialli joined Juventus from Sampdoria in 1993 for a fee €16.5 million, which would be worth €232 million (R3.8 billion) today. He ultimately scored 53 goals in 145 appearances for the Bianconeri, winning the Serie A and UEFA Champions League titles before joining Premier League side Chelsea on a free transfer in 1996.
Cristiano Ronaldo's move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 places him third behind Vialli and Neymar in the all-time ranking. The Portugal superstar joined Los Blancos for a fee of €94 million (R1.5 billion) at the time, which is equivalent to €216 million (R3.5 billion) today.
Ronaldo proved to be worth every penny for the Spanish giants as he went on to score a club-record 450 goals in 438 appearances and win no fewer than 15 major titles during his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid account for three more players in the top 10 most expensive transfers of all time. Gareth Bale's then-world record move of €101 million (R1.6 billion) in 2013 would make him the fifth most-expensive player of all time today at a value of €185 million (R3 billion).
He is followed in seventh and eighth position by current Real boss Zinedine Zidane, whose €77 million (R1.2 billion) move in 2001 would be worth €175 million (R2.8 billion) today, and Ronaldo Nazario, whose adjusted price puts his transfer value at €172 million (R2.8 billion).
