#2. Gonzalo Higuain
Being rejected at a club must be difficult, especially when you know you have the talent to be something special. Real Madrid have a poor history with letting players go, but it was clear that they needed to make a choice between keeping either Benzema or Higuain, and they chose Benzema. That meant Higuain had to take a step down in his career and join a side that couldn’t compete for the Champions League in Napoli. His patience paid off however and he has now got him move back to a top club in Juventus where he can be the main striker in a team aiming to win the top European honours.
