#9 Filippo Inzaghi – € 37m

Inzaghi won the Champions League twice with A.C. Milan

Filippo ‘Fippo’ Inzaghi brought €37 million into Juventus’ coffers in the beginning of the 2001/02 season. This transfer will be a major throwback to the time when A.C. Milan bossed Juventus in the transfer windows, and not the other way around as it is now.

Inzaghi enjoyed a stellar career at A.C. Milan and retired in 2012 as a club legend. Inzaghi won the Champions League twice, 3 Italian Championships, 1 Italian Cup, 1 Fifa Club World Cup, 2 UEFA Super Cups, and 3 Italian Super Cups during A.C. Milan’s period of complete dominance.

His international career was capped off by victory in the 2006 World Cup.

Inzaghi was fortunate to have played with a number of world-class players at A.C. Milan during his stay there. The likes of Paolo Maldini, Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro Nesta and Andrea Pirlo would surely have made life much easier for Inzaghi.

In 300 games in Serie A, Inzaghi scored 126 times, and given how difficult it is for strikers in the league, it is a decent enough return. He was much more prolific in the Champions League, scoring 29 times in 55 games for Milan in the competition.
