Toon Paid Peanuts For Shearer!

Last updated : 10 July 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

kIndeed, Shearer does not figure in the top ten, and I'd be surprised if he made the top 100.

Will Newcastle United ever again be able to make a world record transfer?

So who IS the most expensive?

1. Cristiano Ronaldo - Signed: £80m; Inflation: £94m

Ronaldo's transfer from Man United to Real Madrid in 2009 remains a world record deal at £80m, but owing to inflation, the Portuguese superstar would cost roughly £14m more if he were to move now.

According to Forbes' latest list of the world's best paid athletes, Ronaldo comes in at number nine, picking up around £29m in endorsements alone.
