After Bayern Munich and Dortmund bestrode Europe like a colossus in the 2012-13 season, the market value of the top Bundesliga footballers has soared. We count down the league's costliest players.

The red Bavarian juggernaut powered to three titles last season, wrapping up the Bundesliga with a record-breaking six games to spare, and then winning the Champions League against their old rivals Borussia Dortmund, before dismissing Stuttgart in the German Cup Final.
