There’s nothing like a transfer that completely transforms the fortunes of a football club – and they are also very rare. Today we’re running down 10 of the very best: from Andrea Pirlo turning Juventus back into European giants and Serie A dominators, to Roy Keane helping Manchester United ensure their long-term Premier League supremacy, to Frank Lampard, who was the most important player of the Abramovich era at Chelsea, despite being bought two years before the takeover.
We also take a look at Manuel Neuer, whose signing paved the way for Bayern Munich to win the Champions League and be managed by Pep Guardiola; Cristiano Ronaldo, who helped Real Madrid dominate the UCL in the 2010s; Virgil Van Dijk, who patched up a shaky Liverpool defence to brilliant effect; and Bruno Fernandes, who has lit up Old Trafford since his moving there in January 2020.
