Most Random Transfers In Recent Football History

Today, the Fan Park Crew takes a look at a few transfers that just did not make any sense at the time. The names that were picked are either big players that went to strange clubs or elite clubs signing players that they would never use.

Thomas Gravesen

Everton to Real Madrid

Gravesen was one seen as one of the most hard working midfielders in the Premier League at the time and had a long spell at Everton. When Real Madrid came calling it was a massive surprise to everyone, but his spell at the club didn’t last very long.

Edgar Davids

Retirement to Crystal Palace

The Dutchman was one of the most talented footballers to come out of his generation, but stunned the world when started hopping from club to club in the lower leagues of the English game. In 2010 David’s made a shock move by signing for Crystal Palace after a year out of the game.

Sol Campbell

Portsmouth to Notts County

In his prime, Campbell was a phenomenal defender and even in his later years when playing for struggling side Portsmouth, he could walk into most Premier League sides' first teams. He made a shock move to Notts County in League Two after the season Portsmouth were relegated.  

Julian Faubert

West Ham to Real Madrid

Many don’t even know who Julian Faubert is, let alone that he played for Real Madrid. The Frenchman had a horrible stint for English side West Ham United and who knows why Real Madrid agreed to take him on loan, as he only made two appearances.

Can you think of any more random transfers?
