It all starts with a transfer. The hope, the longing feeling that this new signing is the one. Forget all the rest, all the failures and let-downs - we're into uncharted waters. Good times are ahead. 

But a transfer is more than just that. It's the culmination of well over a century of evolution. It goes beyond the movement of cash from one club to another. From the very first £100 player to Neymar's mind-boggling £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain, it's the transfer of players that defines this sport more than anything else. 

From pioneers like George Eastham and Jean-Marc Bosman, to the epic deals, flops, controversies and courtroom battles, we've gone back over a century of the game to bring you the history of the transfer in football, covering the biggest, most influential deals and rules of all.

From old values to new money, welcome to a bumper issue 46 (and unlike our other magazines, we won't spoil the surprise of what's inside. Trust us, you'll enjoy reading this one as much as anything else we've ever produced).
