4 Talented Players which Transfer Move to the Premier League Didn't Go as Planned

4 Talented Players which Transfer Move to the Premier League Didn't Go as Planned


1. Balotelli

When the eccentric Italian international player returned to English football after joining Liverpool in the summer of 2014, he did not enjoy the competition. Ironically, two years ago, Balotelli stated that leaving Manchester City was a "mistake." However, his brief stint on Merseyside was nothing short of a disaster.

The striker's time with the Reds was cut short after he scored only four goals for the team, and the club allowed him to go for Nice on a free transfer two years later.


2. Carroll

Since Liverpool last played a significant part in one of the busiest and most thrilling trade deadline days, it has been more than a decade. After the contentious sale of Fernando Torres to Chelsea for £50 million, the Reds made the decision to use £35 million of that sum to acquire Newcastle United's number nine position. This decision came after the sale of Fernando Torres to Chelsea for £50 million.

Carroll's performance took a significant leap while Chris Hughton was in charge of his boyhood club, but he was never able to find his footing at Anfield. Carroll's performance took a significant leap while Chris Hughton was in charge of his boyhood club. Since that time, Carroll's career has been hindered by injury on multiple occasions. The striker was a former England international and made it clear after joining that he believed he was driven out of the Magpies, despite the fact that it was a club-record contract for the former England player. Despite this, the striker made it obvious that he thought he was driven out of the Magpies.


3. Di Maria


Concerns that De Jong had about moving to Manchester are very comparable to those that Di Maria had about his time at Old Trafford, where he played for only one season. De Jong was concerned about the same things that Di Maria had. In the summer of 2014, Manchester United set a new record for the most money ever paid to acquire a player from Real Madrid. This record was broken by the amount of money paid by Manchester United. In spite of a strong beginning on the playing field, the positive outcomes did not persist for very long.

The Argentina international's ability to adapt to life in England was hindered by injuries, and he was unable to play to his full potential. While he was in the process of recuperating from his injuries, someone broke into his home in Cheshire, which understandably unnerved him. Di Maria agreed to a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain less than a year after signing with United, and he subsequently claimed that he was never interested in moving to the Red Devils. Di Maria signed with United in the summer of 2016, but he agreed to a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain less than a year later.


4. pato

Pato was on loan to Chelsea for the second part of the 2015–2016 season. Before signing with Corinthians, the striker, who was once on the cusp of greatness with AC Milan, battled through a series of ailments.

Even though the loan deal to Chelsea for Pato was a complete surprise, the attacker described it as a "dream." The striker, who is presently playing for Orlando City, only made two appearances throughout his time with the club, and thereafter he stated that he had no idea why.
