Who is the most expensive winger in the world? That question is different from who the best winger is.

In this article, NaijNaira wants to focus on who the most expensive wingers in football history are.

Yes, once upon a time wingers were merely there to whip balls into big and burly centre-forwards. But not anymore.

These wingers have become more than assist machines and tireless runners.

In today’s world of football, wingers are their teams’ greatest goal threats and playmakers.
