Yesterday @sportingintel posted this graphic listing every Premier League transfer above £20m, a few interesting things of note. 
Arsenal have only purchased one player for more than £20m, but have sold 3
Only Fernando Torres appears twice on the list, and Liverpool made more than double their money on him, and then lost a bunch of the profit when they bought (and later sold) the perennial underachiever Andy Carroll
Liverpool also bought Suarez with the Torres money, so in the end they still came out on top. 
Three words: Juan Sebastián Verón
Robin van Persie, Didier Drogba, David Silva, and Yaya Toure were all cheaper than both Edin Dzeko and Emmanuel Adebayor
