    In the just concluded European club football transfer window, there was quite big transfer of players from one club to another. No one ever believed that Neymar Jr would swap the almighty Barcelona football club for a stint in France with the Paris club, PSG, and everyone was left talking when the same PSG completed the signing of Mbappe from Monaco, initially on a season long loan deal, for a deal that would be worth 180 million euros come next season.

    Football clubs in England such as Chelsea FC, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool made big transfers that passed the 100 million pounds mark in each of the aforementioned clubs and the question is, do you think that successes of football clubs on the field of play are now determined by how much the club can spend in the transfer market? I think formation and tactics also have a role to play.

    What are your thoughts about the spending power of these clubs?

    When you hear football and transfer market today all you should think about is money money money. The rate of money spent today in the world of football is absolutely crazy, so much to that extent that amount of cash being said to be used in doing a single transaction of buying one player is probably enough to one state or a pleasure Island in the Bahamas.

    Two seasons back I was amazed with the transfer dealings of Manchester United in breaking the previous world record of the most expensive player being Grathe Bale of Wales, who plays for Real Madrid. He was bought around 100 million Euros but Manchester United smashed that record in buy Paul Pogba from Juventus for a world new record of 120 million Euros. The entire football world and fans got frenzy over this as if it was a sin.

    But recently, the unbelievable happened when PSG took it upon themselves to destroy the Pogba world record of 120 million Euros when they bought Neymar from Barcelona for a world record of 222 million Euros. The world became silent the day the announcement was made as nobody believed such would ever be happening any time soon but it did actually happen.

    So having said this all, it's pretty much understandable that financial strength now rules football, if you can't afford to spend big in the transfer market it's definitely going to be hard being a force to reckon with.

    I do wish it wasn't all about the money, and football was just played for its own sake - but, sadly, I think that ship sailed long ago. Restrictions on salaries and transfer fees would only work if every country followed them - and that's not going to happen :( .
