Like Ribery, Javi Martinez is a record Bayern Munich record signing that has more than justified his lofty price tag.

Bayern paid a Bundesliga record for the Spaniard back in 2012 and have not regretted a penny of that money since.

Martinez has shone during his time in Germany, becoming a particularly important player under Pep Guardiola.

His time at the club has seen him make over 200 appearances and winning 17 trophies at the club.
