Inter Milan v Barcelona - UEFA Champions League
The Rossoneri have been big spenders in Italy with some of the biggest stars playing at the famous San Siro.

AC Milan is one of the biggest and most followed clubs in the world thanks to the numerous trophies the Diavolo have won throughout their illustrious history.

The Rossoneri have also regularly attracted some of the biggest stars in football - from Ancelotti to Kaka to David Beckham, many footballing greats have worn the famous Red and Black of AC Milan.

Milan saw a decline in their fortunes since last winning the Scudetto in 2011 but have started their journey back to the top since Chinese businessman Li Yonghong took over the reigns in the summer of 2017.

Despite being from Italy, where clubs avoid spending a large sum of money on players, the San Siro giants have shelled out late sums of cash - multiple times - to attract their biggest signings.

#5 Alessandro Nesta

Nesta applauds the crowd after his final game for the Rossoneri in 2012, after spending 10 years with them.

The iconic left-back signed for AC Milan back in 2002 for a whopping €31 million (as reported by the BBC) from Lazio - as the side from Rome - was going through a financial crisis and had to sell some of their best players. Nesta became an integral part of Milan's dominant side under Carlo Ancelotti.

He formed a formidable defensive line for the Rossoneri playing alongside Paolo Maldini, Cafu, Jaap Stam, Alessandro Costacurta during his very long stay at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

The Italy international stayed witht the San Siro outfit for a decade, making 326 appearances for the club and winning a total of 10 trophies during his Milan days - including two Champions League titles.
