The transfer window will be opening on Jan. 1 and top class strikers have never come cheap.
There has been much speculation that Carlos Tevez will be leaving Manchester City to return to South America. What we do know is that he will not be staying at Manchester City; hence is attitude when refusing to go on the field against Bayern Munich in late September. He may be too demanding but he is very talented, which is the reason why he’s worth a whopping $47.2 million.
If Carlos Tevez agreed to stay, it would be because Manchester City are preparing to offer him a world record contract paying him over $337 000 a week for the next 5 years.
That would make him the highest paid footballer in the world but he’s only the 7th most expensive striker on the Top 10 list.
Regardless of what position on the field you think is the most important, strikers are the most expensive players on the market. This proves their importance on the field and the value they add to a club.
Maybe the striker is the most vital position on the squad. At least that’s what the numbers conclude.
