All-Time Premier League Most Expensive XI Ft. Man Utd & Chelsea


CB: Rio Ferdinand (£39.1m)

The only player in this side signed before 2011, Manchester United’s capture of Rio Ferdinand from Leeds United in 2002 proved to be a quality piece of business and the England centre-back stood as the most expensive Englishman of all-time until 2015.

Ferdinand spent 12 successful years at Old Trafford, winning 11 major honours for the Red Devils- including six Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008, where Sir Alex Ferguson’s side beat Chelsea in Russia.
