Simply the 15 ‘craziest transfer rumours’ of recent times
After Cristiano Ronaldo stated that he was feeling sad this week, all sorts of wild rumours were flying around as to the reason behind this comment. Was it because he wanted more money, or that he was unhappy with Marcelo – his former bromance buddy for voting for Iker Casillas as world player of the year? Perhaps he was looking for more love from the club or as many decided a transfer back to former club Manchester United. Well not only is this about as feasible as Ronaldo being sad because Callejon stole the last of his hair gel, it is also one of the more ludicrous transfer rumours of recent times.
Why a player would ask for a transfer the day after the window closed and to a club who frankly are not as good as the one he is currently at – not to mention totally unable to afford him – is beyond most people’s comprehension. Then again over the years there have been some pretty outlandish transfer rumours ranging from the sublime to the outright ridiculous, with newspapers seemingly picking a club, player and price at random and making a headline out of it. With that in mind, here are the top fifteen craziest transfer rumours of recent times.
