What do you think of the list?

Shevchenko and Mendieta are probably the two worst of these expensive dealings.

Do you agree?

Re: Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers

It is just crazy that the Zidane deal is still at the top. I do not believe he was that good!

And the Crespo deal, omg, probably among the worst deals, including Mendieta and Shevchenko to Chelsea that is.

Re: Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers

Zidane was a good name in football. But was he a success at Real Madrid? I do not think so, agree with you there hakon.

Cresp to Lazio. poor poor Lazio, struggled with financial problems for years after Sven Goran Eriksson was at the club splashing cash!

Re: Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers

Some of these transfers are good , but there are football players that don't deserve that..

Re: Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers

wouldn't term zidane's transfer a flop for real madrid. they recoup more than what they spend for their mega buys thru marketing. i would say crespo, robinho berba and sheva were the flops

Re: Top 10 Most Expensive Transfers

The two biggest signings ever made last year and Real Madrid was a massive flop!!!
