How much did we pay for Alex?


Captain Haribo

I'm sure transfer fees aren't of major importance to a lot of you, but I was a little curious as I genuinely can't remember how much he cost. I'm referring to his original move from Santos, rather than when we took him on permanently after his "loan" to PSV.

Brought up because of a Liverpool fan I know saying they couldn't have done a whole lot better with the £2 million they wasted on that Greek lump Soti (lol).

And to give the thread some extended purpose, who has been our best bargain buy?

Just had a look online and all i can find is alex was on a joint contract with us and p.s.v with him going onloan for 3 years and us having a 1 euro buyout. So i presume we got him for free had work permit problems so done a deal with p.s.v which ment they got a good player and a bit of cash for helping us sort work permit, but then again i may be wrong again lol :D

No, we bought him from Santos for money. Rumoured to be between £4m and £10m... although I had heard it was £8m.

Alex is one of my favourite Chelsea players, and at a good age that he can cover for Carvalho as he starts his innevitable decline. Remember that belter of a free-kick he scored in 07/08(?) against Boro(?) haha

I don't think he cost a lot, but I don't know the actual figure.

Yeah, thought it was about the 5 million mark, but then I'm not overly sure how much we paid in regards to his wages while he was at PSV, so the total price may be a lot more than that.

Flo is a great shout DKW, probably some of the best business that we've been involved in for a while.

Carlo is a good shout too. Joe Cole I don't think was too much either. Lampard's fee for what he became, is a pitance. Don't think we paid too much for Zola either, nor do I think we were held to randsom too highly for Gudjohnsen.
