Most Profitable Transfers In Football - Part 2

Today, we continue our countdown of the 10 most profitable transfers in football. In this list we see the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale.

Here is our Final Five:

Zinedine Zidane – Juventus to Real Madrid

Profit: £43 Million

The Former French World Cup winner arrived at Juventus for a mere £3 million and after a few very successful seasons, he was sold to Real Madrid for £46 million.

Ricardo Kaka – AC Milan to Real Madrid

Profit: £51 million

Kaka was AC Milan's golden boy at the time, but we all know that when Los Blancos come calling, it's difficult to say no. Kaka cost AC Milan £6 million initially, but they managed to sell him for £57 million.

Luis Suarez – Liverpool to Barcelona

Profit: £52 million

The troubled Uruguayan striker cost former club Liverpool £22.8 million from Ajax Amsterdam. The striker got himself in heaps of trouble at the club, but still scored plenty of goals. Barcelona were keen on having him and forked out £75 million for his services.

Cristiano Ronaldo – Manchester United to Real Madrid

Profit: £65 million

The three-time Ballon d’Or winner cost his former club just 15 million. In 2009 Real Madrid came calling for the Portuguese star and United sold him for a then record-fee of £80 million.

Gareth Bale – Tottenham to Real Madrid

Profit: £75 million

Tottenham Hotspur hit an absolute goldmine when they bought Bale. The Welshman only cost Spurs £10 million from Southampton and a few years later they sold him to Real Madrid for a world record fee of £85 million.
