With transfer fees growing year on year we take a look at which squads are the most expensively assembled in Europe

Transfer fees have ballooned in the past five years with €50 million (£44m/$57m) now seemingly the minimum you would pay for a top-class player in Europe.

We aren't quite at the first €1 billion squad (£886m/$1.13bn) yet but we certainly are approaching it, with the most expensive squad in the world at the moment costing €800m (£709m/$912m) to put together, with that figure growing 13% in just 12 months.

With the €100m (£89m/$114m) barrier being broken several times in the past couple of years there is no surprise that we are currently looking at the most expensive squads ever assembled.
