Julián, recordman?

Julián, recordman?

Álvarez scores goals very often in River Plate and the millionarios fans know that they are enjoying the last days of him dressed in red and white, because he will join Josep Guardiola’s City.

The citizens disbursed 17 million euros for the champion of America with the Argentine team in 2021 and with River in 2018.

What is the maximum sale of the millionaires?

By far the first place is owned byJavier Saviola, for whom Barcelona paid almost 36 million euros at the beginning of the century after an impressive appearance in Argentine football. After many loan transfers and signings as a free player, the one who paid the most for the record signing was Benfica with only 5 million. It was not a big culé business.

The second position is for Lucas Alario, Colón de Santa Fe former, who came to Núñez for 2 million euros and left for 24 million for Germany to defend Bayer Leverkusen. 

Bronze medal for the “Payasito”, who left Argentina in January 2001 on his way to Valencia for 21 million euros and had a long career on the European continent. He also did not repay what they paid and went to Zaragoza for less money later. As in the case of Saviola, Benfica also bought him back for an even smaller amount.

A Chilean gets into the ranking. Marcelo Salas left in August 1998 for 17 and a half million from River Plate to Lazio. In this case it was profitable for the Romans who sold him to Juventus years later for 25 million euros.

Erik Lamela and Exequiel Palacios, more recent, share the transfer cost in fifth position with Álvarez.
