3) Fernando Torres – Liverpool to Chelsea
Back in 2009, there was not a more feared striker in the world than Fernando Torres.
Fast, strong, stylish and absolutely deadly in front of goal Torres was a force of nature barnstorming through Premier League defenses all over England.
When Liverpool bought Luis Saurez in 2010, fans all over the world were looking forward to the trio of Torres, Gerrard and Suarez linking up together. Unfortunately for Liverpool fans, that dream lasted for three days.
Chelsea came in with a 50 million bid and Torres wanted to go. While he did win the FA Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League during his time at Chelsea, the Torres of Liverpool never really showed up in the Chelsea blue.
Had he stayed at Anfield, the possibility of Torres and Suarez linking up would have been an amazing duo that would have captured the imagination of football fans all over the world. Transfers don’t always turn out how to expect it.
