Failed Transfers That Would Have Changed English Football

Every football fan loves a good transfer rumour, whether they admit it or not. What I like even more is thinking about the transfers that never quite happened. That’s why I wrote this article for WhatCulture.

Imagine what English football would look like today if Fergie’s Man Utd had signed David Hirst instead of Cantona, or if Roy Keane had signed for Blackburn instead? What if Lewandowski’s flight to England hadn’t been cancelled and he made his name in the Premier League instead of the Bundesliga? What if a teenage Maradona had pitched up at Bramall Lane in the ’70s?

They all nearly happened. You can read all 10 near-miss transfer tales here.
