The stars of world football that have bypassed England so far this summer.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis gleefully announced on Wednesday that the Serie A club have signed Real Madrid striker and former Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain.
The Gunners missing out on the Argentine is just the latest in an ever-growing list of big name players that have snubbed Premier League sides so far this summer.
fanatix has therefore decided to take a look at the five biggest star to pass up on English football.
Interested English teams: Chelsea, Manchester City.
Eventual destination: Paris Saint-Germain.
The Cavani saga stretched from the beginning of the transfer window, with a seemingly three-way race for the Uruguayan’s signature between City, Chelsea and Madrid.
The Citizens even placed a bid for the Napoli striker, but it was rejected by De Laurentiis and no side seemed willing to activate the £55m buy-out fee for the 26-year-old.
At the 11th hour PSG swooped in with the full amount and left all three teams wondering what could have been.
Interested English teams: Chelsea.
Eventual destination: AS Monaco.
The powerful South American had already had one huge fee paid for the 27-year-old when Atletico Madrid forked out £41.4m to FC Porto for Falcao in 2011.
However, when it became apparent the Colombian could be on the move again this summer the Blues became interested.
With Falcao having scored 70 goals in 91 matches for Atleti it was easy to see why, although the west London outfit were once again foiled by a super-rich Ligue 1 club – this time Monaco, who paid £50m.
