The Neymar transfer changed it all. Obviously smashing the record fee, but also what happened after that - the prices Barca then paid for an established player in Coutinho, and, probably with more impact, one of the hot prospects in Europe in Dembele with that money. That set benchmarks then for different brackets of player that clubs could quote and just trickles all down the foodchain, prices go up.

Obviously the seemingly ever increasing influx of money (especially in England) and inevitable natural inflation has been seeing the prices go up and up, to what we already thought were pretty crazy, but I think that deal just massively accelerated the whole thing. A key moment in the modern football transfer market.
Nah. There are still very good deals to be had around Europe(albeit maybe alittle more money being required) but in England, obscene amounts of money are required to buy players.

It's the whole idea of, between English sides we know we each have money so we'll put that price on em.

Foreign clubs can get and do get better deals between each other

Felix has had his breakthrough season, goes for over 100m.

Real Madrid are signing teenagers from the Brazilian league for 40 - 50m.

Teams like Dortmund are automatically quoting 100m for someone like Sancho after literally a dozen half decent matches.

The Chinese teams and their mega money splurge that got reined in somewhat.

Etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

The money from English teams does help add to the inflation and boosts the market, but prices have rocketed across the globe and I think the Neymar deal has a lot to do with it.

You think? :p

The Coutinho one didn't help either.

I mentioned him, and Dembele which I think is arguably the more impactful transfer/price, in my previous post. But those are still a knock on effect/consequence of the Neymar deal really.

Vinicius? Joined Real last summer after he'd turned 18, was a first XI regular by Christmas, but had his season cut short through an injury. Definitely a massive prospect.

Atletico have had a busy few weeks.

Joao Felix in, Hector Herrera in, Felipe in from Porto, Marcos Llorente in last week, a Brazilian left back and Argentine striker also signed.

Lucas Hernandez out, Rodri out, Gelson Martins out, Vietto out, Mensah out. That's about 200m Euros there. Marginal profit so far, I'd think. Godin left for free.

Big rebuilding summer and probably Greizmann leaving very soon too.
Very clever move that.

Yeah he looks fit and able enough to do a job for a season or two more. Good move.

Looks to be a very exciting prospect, they also recently signed Rodrygo with the fee going up to £45 Million. However that has always been the case with Brazilian prospects and third party ownership.

You're absolutely right. However I think what separates the PL is that virtually every transfer from a PL club is now obscene. Real Madrid etc. buy players for big money obviously, but they don't have a situation like we do where mid-table teams are throwing relatively big money around on a regular basis. The Neymar transfer certainly raised the bar for what the top echelon of players go for, but it's the Premier League that's driving up the price of the bang average/mid-table level players.
