Ten Of The Most Profitable Transfers In Football

Sports is a business these days, so today the Fan Park Crew takes a look at a few transfers that made some clubs really good money.

Radamel Falcao – Porto to Atletico Madrid

Profit: £36 million

In 2009 Radamel Falcao joined Porto in the Portuguese league from Argentina-based side River Plate for £5 million. The Colombian had a fantastic goal scoring record in Portugal and later got sold to Atletico Madrid for £41 million.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Inter to Barcelona

Profit: £38 million

The now Paris Saint-Germain striker had a lavish career in Serie A with Inter Milan. He cost the Italian club £22 million pounds, but got sold for £60 million when Barcelona came knocking.

Angel Di Maria – Real Madrid to Manchester United

Profit: £39.7 million

Arguably one of Real Madrid’s players of the season last year, amazingly only cost the club £20million from Benfica. Last season the Argentine got sold to Manchester United for a British record fee of £59.7 million

Edison Cavani – Napoli to Paris Saint-Germain

Profit: £41

Cavani is one of the most sought-after strikers in the world and back in 2010 he only cost Napoli £14 million. After some stellar seasons at the club, he moved to PSG for a crazy fee of £55 million.

Hernan Crespo – Parma to Lazio

Profit: £42 million

In 2000 Crespo became the world’s most expensive player after he got sold to Lazio for £44million, after only costing Parma £2 million.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s second instalment of the most profitable transfers in football.
