Francis expecting £100m transfer soon

Trevor Francis, the first £1 million footballer, believes the £100 million player is just around the corner.

Brian Clough stunned football in 1979 when he paid twice the previous record fee to take Francis from Birmingham to Nottingham Forest. But Francis insists the £50 million paid for Fernando Torres by Chelsea and the £35 million which took Andy Carroll from Newcastle to Liverpool in the transfer window last month will be dwarfed in the future.

Francis, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme, said: ''I thought (the Torres transfer) was too much money just as people thought it was too much when Brian Clough paid £1 million for me but there wasn't the surprise as there was in 1979. Football has become awash with money.

''£1 million had that magic ring to it and I am sure there will be a £100 million transfer. That would be something which would captivate everyone's interest because that would have a magical ring to it.''

He believes the fees, however, will put Torres and Carroll under pressure.

''In my time the supporters were singing 'What a waste of money' and I had that until I scored my first goal,'' he said. ''The best thing that happened to me was when Steve Daley was transferred from Wolves to Manchester City for £1.5 million. I don't think Steve ever realised what a weight that took off my shoulders.

''The one I find slightly out of proportion is the Carroll one. Carroll's a gamble. But Torres is a gamble, Darren Bent was a gamble. It is always a gamble when you play that sort of money.''
