Leeds’ top 10 most expensive players
Leeds United’s fall from grace was spectacular. The Yorkshire club were rubbing shoulders with Europe’s elite in the Champions League one minute and being talked about as potential title contenders, but just a matter of months later crippling debts forced the sales of key players – often at a loss – and the inevitable happened when they were relegated in 2004.
As we all know, Leeds are yet to return to the top tier, even though many suspected their absence from the big stage would only be a short one. The years since have been no easier, with false dawns aplenty at Elland Road, while the current Massimo Cellino regime and his monthly sacking of managers has made the Whites a laughing stock. It really is a sad state of affairs for such a proud and historic club.
The crazy years of the late 1990s/early 2000s brought some huge transfers with them, and we thought it would be interesting to look back at some of these big-buys.
