Spain striker Fernando Torres is one player who comes to mind when one talks about players returning to former clubs. The 33-year-old began his senior career at Atletico Madrid in 2001 and left in 2007, going on to play for the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan. Torres returned to the Spanish club on loan back in 2015, and sealed a permanent deal a few months later.

Juan Sebastian Veron is another superstar who eventually made it back to represent his boyhood club. The 42-year-old midfielder represented Argentinian side Estudiantes and broke into their first team in 1993. Two years later, he left the club, only to return in 2006 after numerous spells in Europe, including at Lazio, Manchester United and Chelsea.

2004 Ballon d'Or winner Andriy Shevchenko began his professional career at Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kyiv in 1994. The 40-year-old played for the likes of AC Milan and Chelsea in his career, but decided to head back to the Ukraine to his old club in 2009.
