Marko Pjaca officially became the most expensive player ever to be sold from the Croatian First Division this week when he signed a 5-year 23 million euro deal with Italian giants Juventus…

The transfer puts Pjaca on top of the list of the biggest transfers in Dinamo Zagreb’s history. Dinamo’s TOP 10 transfers total more than 100 million euros, which includes Luka Modrić to Tottenham for 21 million euros, Vedran Ćorluka to Manchester City for 13 milllion euros and Mateo Kovačić to Inter for 11 million euros.

Marko Pjaca is the 6th Dinamo Zagreb player to be sold for more than 10 million euros, and is the 17th biggest transfer so far this summer. Hulk to Shanhai SIPG for 55.8 million euros is number one.

So how do Dinamo Zagreb compare to other clubs around the world when it comes to transfers over the last decade?

A report by daily Sportske novosti reveals that only 4 other football clubs in Europe have earned more (net) than Dinamo Zagreb in the last 10 years. An incredible statistic for a small club in a city which boasts a population of only 800,000.

Marko Rog is expected to be sold this summer for 10 million plus also

Since 2000 Dinamo have sold players to the value of 215.8 million euros. Their net earnings (players sold minus players bought) in the last decade is 124.13 million euros, which puts the club in 5th place in Europe and 9th in the world. Only Porto, Benfica, Udinese and Lille earned net more than the Maksimir club.

 Ante Ćorić will be another big pay day for the club when he is sold
