Dele Alli Next In Line To Break Neymar’s €222m Transfer Fee – Finance Expert

Football finance expert Raffaele Poli believes Tottenham’s Bamidele Alli is as well-placed as anyone to topple Neymar’s status as the most expensive footballer in history.

Poli is the head of the Football Observatory at the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), a Swiss-based study centre that published research in June estimating Neymar to have a market value of €210.7m – a shade below the buyout clause PSG staggeringly activated.

The CIES placed Alli and Spurs team-mate Harry Kane next in their standings at that stage and Poli told Omnisport that Neymar’s record could be short-lived if such players impress on the big stage and decide it is time for a change of scenery.

“Potentially it can be broken already next year,” he said.

“A player like Dele Alli – if he does well, if he does a good domestic league with Tottenham, if he does a good Champions League campaign, if he does a good World Cup with England next year then I wouldn’t be surprised if he could be transferred for more than Neymar’s price.

“This wouldn’t be a sign of inflation by itself. It depends on how he performs, but Neymar was not the most inflated transfer during the last window.”
