France_EURO_2016

The Euros is under way and the squads have been assembled – but who has the most expensive?

According to a new study by Profit Accumulator who looked at the most recent transfer fee of every player going to this summer’s tournament, it’s not the Germans or the host country, France.

Surprisingly, the Belgians are the money men at this year’s championship.
