5. Owen Hargreaves, Free Agent to Manchester City, August 2011
Owen Hargreaves was signed by Manchester City after being released by their rivals Manchester United earlier in the summer. City brought the player in after a thorough medical (which I think included watching the YouTube clip of him running on a treadmill!) and signed him to a one-year contract. The England international only made one Premier League appearance for City before being released on a free at the end of season.
