Top five transfer flops
1. Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United to Real Madrid
With out a question of a doubt, the biggest and most talked about transfer saga of the season award, like so many others, goes to one Cristiano Ronaldo.
For months on end all we heard about was the will he, won’t he, transfer saga of Ron and his ‘dream move’ to Real Madrid.
Real wanted him, Ron wanted them, and Ferguson wanted to throw a footie boot at someone’s head, probably.
2. Gareth Barry: Aston Villa to Liverpool
Ah, Gareth Barry was yet another transfer headache that refused to go away.
After ten years of service to Aston Villa the 27-year-old skipper wanted to realise his very own dream of playing at Anfield.
Many supporters thought the partnership formed between Barry and Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard during recent England games was enough to warrant Barry’s move to Merseyside, and of all the flopped transfers, this one was the biggest heartbreaker.
3. David Villa: Valencia to anyone
After impressing so much at Euro 2008 it was only a matter of time before the Golden Boot winner became the No.1 target of Premier League clubs all over the land.
Liverpool thought they might have a go, Tottenham, and Arsenal too, but after such an impressive tournament with eventual winners Spain, it was only a matter of time before Valencia slapped a 20million and over price-tag on the 27-year-old.
Only Chelsea could afford him, they didn’t need him, so Villa signed a further contract that will see him finish his career with the La Liga club, shame.
4. Ronaldinho: Barcelona to Manchester City
After getting a belly to match his teeth, former Brazilian bucktooth hero Ronaldinho also became ‘surplus to requirements’ at Barcelona and so the chase began.
On hearing this news Manchester City boss Mark Hughes made the World Cup winner one of his No.1 targets of the transfer season, even flying to Spain in a last ditch attempt to bring him to Eastlands – but we all knew it was never going to happen.
5. Robinho: Real Madrid to Chelsea
Robinho’s move from Real Madrid to Chelsea was a transfer that EVEYONE thought was a done deal, so much so that Chelsea even started advertising the Brazilian’s name on the back of their new away shirts before anything had even been signed, but that was before a pesky group of cashed-up Arabs came and ruined the whole damn thing!
