The biggest transfer for Manchester City since Sheikh Mansour took over the club in 2008 was a big failure. He was signed from Real Madrid for around £32.5 million and he was meant to be the man to kickstart Man City’s new chapter in world football.
The forward was a massive success in his first season at Manchester, as his flair and goalscoring ability made him a star in the Premier League. Next season, he endured an ankle injury which ruled him out for three months and restricted him to just 10 league appearances.
Eventually, after an unsuccessful second season with the Cityzens he was shipped off to Santos on loan and eventually sold to Milan.
He will rank first for a long time amongst Players Who Regretted Joining Manchester City.
