Goalkeepers are usually not the most expensive players in the squad, but in 2001 Juventus paid a record fee of €52.88 million for Gianluigi Buffon.
Bayern Munich and Germany keeper, Manuel Neuer, follows in second spot, while David De Gea’s deal to move to Old Trafford made him the fifth most expsensive shot-stopper in history.
Cech, meanwhile, is in ninth place, but many value his €14 million deal as a great bargain for the Gunners.
