#10. Robinho (Real Madrid-Manchester City) £32 Million
After Manchester City broke the British Record transfer fee of that time for signing Robinho, much was expected from the Brazilian Striker in 2008. Arriving from a club like Real Madrid and while Manchester City showed no hesitation in paying such a mammoth fee of 32 Million Pounds, Robinho was never able to do justice to his high price tag. In a total of 53 games for the Citizens, the Brazilian managed just 16 goals before being sent out on loan to Santos. And with the arrival of new players at the Etihad, Robinho was finally sold to AC Milan in 2010.
