Here’s the ten most expensive January transfers ever, including absurdly overpriced stars!
10) Clarence Seedorf – Real Madrid to Inter Milan – £21m in 2001.
Despite his excellent pedigree, the now legendary Dutchman was shipped to city rivals AC Milan just a year later, where he went on to win two European Cups and two Serie A titles.
9) Luis Suarez – Ajax to Liverpool – £23m in 2011
Easily one of the January transfer window’s best ever signings. Suarez has scored 73 goals in 114 matches for the Reds so far, and has well and truly established himself as one of the world’s best players.
