The Top 10 English Premier League Transfer Fees

Either In or Out of the English Premiership :

1. Andriy Shevchenko - Milan to Chelsea, £30m (2006)
Value-for-money rating: Too early to say, but £30m for someone who turns 30 next month would be a huge risk for anyone but Chelsea

2. Rio Ferdinand - Leeds United to Manchester United, £29.1m (2002)
Value-for-money rating: Ferdinand's played well for United, but not worth 29 million quid. And then there were those eight months out for forgetting to attend a drugs test.

3. Juan Sebastian Veron - Lazio to Manchester United, £28.1m (2003)
Value-for-money rating: A disaster from almost beginning to end. Has to be the worst signing ever. Another Fergie Blunder.

4. Wayne Rooney - Everton to Manchester United, £27m (2004)
Value-for-money rating: Top Class. Once when Fergie got it right.

5. David Beckham - Manchester United to Real Madrid, £25m (2003)
Value-for-money rating: Though Real hasnt won a trophy since Becks arrived, Off the pitch, Beckham has swelled Real's coffers like never before and on it, he's earned consistently good reviews.

6. Didier Drogba - Marseille to Chelsea, £24m (2004)
Value-for-money rating: Hes good but £24m ?? Nah , not that good.

7. Nicolas Anelka - Arsenal to Real Madrid, £23.5m (2000)
Value-for-money rating: A flop in Spain. Undoubtedly, one of Arsène Wenger's best deals.

8. Marc Overmars - Arsenal to Barcelona, £21.6m (2000)
Value-for-money rating: Never delivered for Barcelona. Another astute Wenger move.

9. Ricardo Carvalho - Porto to Chelsea, £19.85m (2003)
Value-for-money rating: Solid and usually unflappable but again worth £20m ?? No.

10. Ruud van Nistelrooy - PSV to Manchester United, £19m. (2001)
Value-for-money rating: Was sensational for three seasons, and won the Premiership almost single-handedly in 2003. One of the best deal in this Top 10 List, me thinks.

This List was taken from The Guardian but I do have doubts about it. For example, Michael Essien was bought from Lyon to Chelsea in 2005 for £24.4m , if I remember right but he is missing from the list. As stated in the post above, a lot of the details depend on the performance related aspects of the fees and so its tough to actually know what the clubs ended up paying for that player.

is smooth nearly unseen hair) and to a smaller
level rougher locks in specific places of our systems. Shaver other features you should look for are:

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

Thanks

I create a leave a response each time I appreciate a article on a website or

And on this post "The Top 10 English Premier League Transfer Fees".
I was excited enough to drop a leave a responsea response

if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or
does it look like a few of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I'd like to follow you. Could you make a list the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Howdy would you mind letting me know which

Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest
