Seven Premier League stars to bounce back in 2015/16 Arsenal and Man Utd stars to step up
The Daily Mail previously compiled the full list of football’s most expensive golden oldies, however we’ve now updated it to include the German stalwart:
10. Petr Cech (Chelsea to Arsenal) £11m
Despite 30 usually being the age when players begin to think about the twilight of their careers, for goalkeepers it normally signals the beginning of their prime. Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping that that is the case with their new signing. The 33-year-old has won practically everything, but has plenty of time to win some more.
9. Fernando Redondo (Real Madrid to AC Milan) £12m
When Real Madrid’s playmaker departed for Serie A in 2000, there was considerable uproar from Los Blancos’ disgruntled supporters. However, Madrid’s decision to let him go was cruelly vindicated as he sustained a horrible knee injury during one of his first training sessions for Milan, and spent two and a half years on the sidelines. He made just 16 appearances for the Italian side before retiring in 2004.
