Sky Sports claim how much Alan Shearer would be worth if signed in 2018 – Do you agree?

According to a recent piece by Sky Sports, Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer would cost £125m if his £15m transfer back in 1996 was inflated to present-day prices in 2018.

This comes from a study published by TotallyMoney – with the report “converting every transfer fee since 1992 into current market values – factoring the inflation of players’ fees from seasonal averages”.

They also claim that record signing Michael Owen – who cost us £17m back in 2005 – would be worth a staggering £76m today; showing just how little ambition we now show given we’ve NEVER even spent more than £15m thirteen years on from that transfer.

Here’s what they claim to be the top 15  Premier League signings since 1992 in today’s money:

The study claims that Andriy Shevchenko – signed by Chelsea from AC Milan for £29.4m – would be the most expensive player in Premier League history if this fee (from 2006) was inflated to present-day prices.

Do you agree with this?

One thought on “Sky Sports claim how much Alan Shearer would be worth if signed in 2018 – Do you agree?

  1. What would he be worth to NUFC now? Priceless. Just the lift it would give the club would be immeasurable, then the goals on top. How do you put a price on that?
    That said, ‘priceless’ would also describe what getting rid of Ashley would do for the club.
