We count down the ten craziest transfer rumours of the calender year…
This list consists of those rumours invented by the national press and, yes, re-reported by us. Everyone loves a good transfer rumour, but we have to admit that we fell for some of these ourselves.
With stars from Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid all included, see if you agree with our rankings:
10) Fernando Torres (AC Milan to Liverpool)
This couldn’t happen could it? Torres burned a lot of bridges when he left Liverpool for Chelsea in 2011, and many Reds fans have relished in the downturn of his career. Nonetheless, the Daily Star believe it really could happen.
