Manchester City signed Ederson for €40m from Benfica in 2017.  He has since kept 62 clean sheets in 131 appearances, helping the club to back-to-back Premier League titles and a domestic treble last season.

Aside from his outstanding reflexes and shot-stopping abilities, Ederson is also renown for his skill with the ball at his feet.

3. Gianluigi Buffon – €52.88m

The 176-time Italy international is arguably the greatest goalkeeper of his generation despite competition from the likes of Iker Casillas and Petr Cech.

Buffon started out at Parma, but made his true legacy at Juventus. He’s been a loyal member of the Bianconeri, staying even when the club fell into disgrace and got demoted to Serie B in 2006.

Not even Ligue 1 success at Paris Saint-Germain last season could keep Buffon away from Juventus. He’s now gunning for a 10th Serie A title. Latest reports have suggested the 42-year-old will stay another season as well.

The Italian legend held top spot in the list for the most expensive goalkeepers in history for 17 years.
