#10. Alan Shearer – Manchester United
How different would the Premier League have been had these transfers gone through? These are the deals which will forever remain unfinished and leave many people with a lot of regret. The first on the list is the top scorer in Premier League history who came very close to joining the most successful club in Premier League history. It would have been a match made in heaven had Alan Shearer joined Manchester United on either of the two occasions he came close to signing for the club. Shearer came close to United after his breakout season at Southampton but the forward joined Blackburn Rovers instead. When he left Blackburn a few years later, United came calling again. However Shearer elected to join boyhood club Newcastle United and 200 goals later, the rest is history.
