The January transfer window is upon us and that only means that all the Premier League clubs will be expecting to invest in their squads and ensure that they do not lose out on any key players during the fag end of the season.
However, there have been many stories about great transfer dealings in the past in this window; Luis Suarez to Liverpool is one of the highlights from the window that most footballers don’t really like. There have been a lot of great transfers this season as well, Kante to Leicester, but here are five of the biggest transfer blunders from 2015.
5. Juan Cuadrado
The highly rated Colombian, one of the stars in the Serie A for Fiorentina was a prized asset and it was Chelsea that signed the winger.
What Chelsea and Mourinho got was an attacker of the highest calibre, what Cuadrado ended up going was something else. Mourinho knew it would take the attacker time to adjust to England but his time in the Premier League was filled with abject performances and he was then loaned to Juventus at the start of this season, despite moving to Chelsea in February 2015, certainly not the best transfer so far.
