Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho joined the list of most expensive players in the business.

#5 Gianluigi Donnarumma
Long considered one of Italy's most exciting prospects, and one of the most promising young footballers of his generation Donnarumma is widely regarded as the heir to Gianluigi Buffon for the number one position for the Azzurri.
The Italian was subjected to the wrath of Milan fans when he refused to sign a contract extension with the club, with the elite clubs interested in him. The player was then said to be worth €170 million.
However, he penned a new deal which would keep him at San Siro till 2021. Lately, the speculations regarding his future have started up again and his agent, Mino Riola is reportedly trying to get his client's contract annulled at the club.
It would not be a surprise if some elite club like PSG or Real Madrid agrees to meet the asking price of the Italian side, for the youngster.
