The most expensive signings in history Levante
¿Who are the most expensive signings in the history of Levante? The Granota team lived practically the entire 20th century in the catacombs of Spanish football and it was not until the 21st century when it hit the growth spurt and slipped into the highest category of Spanish football frequently to the point of playing in the Europa League 2013. In this time of glory, the best decade in the history of Levante, great signings like Keylor Navas, Felipe Caicedo, Obafemi Martins O Aruna Koné among others.
But none of them was one of the most expensive transfers since they were great economic and sports operations. And it is that Levante had a philosophy that was not bad at all until the accumulation of seasons in the First Division made him accumulate purchasing power and start paying good amounts for footballers who later did not work. These are the players for whom the Valencian club has paid the most money. Interestingly none of the best players in the history of the Levant are among those who have paid the most money.

The most expensive signings are not synonymous with leaving a mark on Levante
For example the most expensive signing in history, Nicola Vukcevic was a sporting and economic failure despite fulfilling 4 seasons. Customs what did it cost 6 million had heart problems and ended up playing with a portable defibrillator in leagues where it was allowed.
Simon Moses was sold to Nantes for the same price it had cost and then multiplied by 10 its value. Sergio León spent almost 3 years without scoring a goal in the league and thus a long etcetera of errors that show that the great players in the history of Levante did not arrive in pharaonic operations.
