This move made Angel Di Maria the third most expensive Argentinian in Europe top five leagues as Paris Saint-Germain paid Manchester united 63 million Euros to acquire his services.

Asides Higuain, Martinez and Angel Di Maria, other Argentine players who cost over 45 million Euros includes Crespo and Mauro Icardi. Nevertheless, Crespo joined Lazio in the 2000/01 for 56.8 million Euros while Paris Saint-Germain signed Icardi for 50 million Euros.

Other Argentine players who made the top ten list includes, Otamendi, Veron, Pastore and Paulo Dybala. However, Dybala is currently a free agent and is yet to sign for a new club this summer.
