1NEWS – The summer transfer window is officially closed. Many surprises occurred until the closing seconds of the transfer, although not a few who took desperate actions to reap success when acquiring players throughout the history of the transfer market.

In the 2011 season for example. On the last day of the January transfer window, Luis Suarez’s deal from Ajax Amsterdam to Liverpool took place.

Another one in the 2018 season when player moves occurred in the final days. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal also tells of success.

In this list, we will focus on some of the offers ahead of the transfer window ending in the summer window. Who to where, and at what price to involve them? We compiled the list for all readers:

1. Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima: Inter to Real Madrid, 46 million euros (2002)

Ronaldo immediately became an Inter icon after his world-record transfer from Barcelona in 1997. He impressed in Serie A in his first two seasons before his career was ruined by two serious knee injuries.

Apart from that, Ronaldo barely played in the next three years, although he returned towards the end of the 2001/2002 season. He was destined to win the elusive Scudetto until Inter failed in the final game of the season.

Ronaldo was seen crying on the bench in Inter’s final day defeat to Lazio. It was his last match with the Nerazzurri. The Brazilian legend told then Inter President Massimo Moratti that he would only stay if Coach Hector Cuper was sacked.

Moratti did not dare to fire Cuper until Ronaldo kept his word. Ronaldo left for Real Madrid on deadline day for a dowry of 46 million euros.

2. Wayne Rooney: Everton to Manchester United, 39 million euros (2004)

Manchester United beat fierce competition from Chelsea to sign Wayne Rooney for 39 million euros on the final day of the 2004 transfer window.

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted the deal was a bit dubious, but Rooney’s doubts were quickly answered. On his debut against Fenerbahce in the Champions League, he scored a brilliant hat-trick and provided an assist. It would be the start of a long and largely happy career at Old Trafford.

Rooney surpassed Dennis Law and Bobby Charlton to become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer. Rooney scored 253 goals collected from 559 matches.

3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Ajax to Juventus, 16 million euros (2004)

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s last goal for Ajax at the start of the 2004/2005 season. This achievement is considered the greatest. Not only in his career, but also in the history of football.

The Swede dribbled past the entire NAC Breda defense with a series of gimmicks before finally getting the ball into the net.

Unfortunately for Ajax, this attracted the interest of Juventus. Mino Raiola helped draft a 16 million euro deal on deadline day and Ibrahimovic continued to be one of the best players of his generation for the next two decades.

4. Sergio Ramos: Sevilla to Real Madrid, 27 million euros (2005)

Sergio Ramos became the most expensive Spanish defender in history when he joined Real Madrid from Sevilla 16 years ago. No one could have predicted how fantastically Madrid could bring in Ramos in such crucial days.

And it’s clear that he has a special talent, evidently Ramos is one of the most successful players having won five La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles and four Champions League titles with Los Blancos.

At the Santiago Bernabeu, he became one of the greatest defenders in the world before finally moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021.

5. Ashley Cole: Arsenal to Chelsea, 7.4 million euros + William Gallas (2006)

Ashley Cole went from the red side of London to the blue when he joined Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in the summer of 2006.

Arguably he is the best left-back in Premier League history. The move was a huge success and saw Cole elevate his position as the most talented full-back in world football at the time.

Cole joins Chelsea who have just won back-to-back Premier League titles. Along with the likes of Frank Lampard, John Terry, Petr Cech and Didier Drogba, Cole has helped consolidate the Blues’ status as one of Europe’s elite teams.

While Arsenal fans will never forgive Cole, nicknamed him ‘Cashley’ due to his alleged desire to go to Chelsea for more money. He must have made the right decision by going to the Blues.

6. Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano: Corinthians to West Ham, price undisclosed (2006)

The image of Alan Pardew standing between Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano holding up their new West Ham jersey was one of the most iconic and whimsical of the transfer window.

The Argentines joined the Hammers together on deadline day in 2006, although the deal was controversial and exciting.

The transfer was strictly confidential, with no release of transfer fees or contract lengths for either player.
Incidentally, Tevez only lasted one season before moving to Manchester United and Mascherano leaving for Liverpool the following January. Ownership of players by third parties was banned worldwide in 2015.

7. Dimitar Berbatov: Tottenham to Manchester United, 38 million euros (2008)

Manchester United has one of the best striker lists in the world in 2008. Besides Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Carlos Tevez who are always ready to terrorize the opponent’s defense, there is Dimitar Berbatov.

Alex Ferguson wants to add something different up front. That’s why he asked for the signing of Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgarian remains one of the most classy players to have ever played in the Premier League, although he has struggled to share minutes with the attacking trio above. Berbatov usually looks good when played.

His sensational hat-trick against Liverpool was one of the highlights of his Manchester United career. That nick ensured he would become one of the most beloved figures among United fans.

8. Robinho: Real Madrid to Manchester City, 42 million euros (2009)

Manchester City’s first major transfer came on deadline day 2008, precisely when they acquired Robinho from Real Madrid for 43 million euros.

The 24-year-old Brazilian had previously spent three seasons at the Bernabeu and was brilliant in his first season at Man City, contributing 14 goals and five assists in 31 Premier League games.

However, that was fleeting, as Robinho made just 10 appearances the following season before being loaned out to Santos in January and then sold to AC Milan in the summer of 2010.

9. Mesut Ozil: Real Madrid to Arsenal, 50 million euros (2013)

Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal career may have ended in a sad way, as he was oddly allowed to leave on a free transfer to Fenerbahce. But he remains one of the best creative No.10s the Premier League has seen over the last 15 years.

In 268 appearances for the Gunners, he contributed over 100 goals through 77 assists plus 44 goals.

After Arsene Wenger left the club, Ozil seemed no longer interested in playing for Arsenal.

10. Gareth Bale: Tottenham to Real Madrid, 100 million euros (2013)

Gareth Bale became the most expensive player in history when he signed for Real Madrid from Tottenham for 100 million euros.

The Welshman will form a deadly attacking partnership alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. They were nicknamed the trio ‘BBC’.

His contribution to Real Madrid cannot be forgotten. Bale has scored no less than three goals in a Champions League final, including one of the biggest goals ever in a final – an overhead kick against Liverpool.

After last season on loan at Tottenham, Bale is still given another opportunity to rediscover the best form of his form. It can not be separated from the reappointment of Carlo Ancelotti.
