In Football’s modern era, cash is king in the Premier League. Teams are splashing a hefty amount of dough to acquire the biggest talents in the world. A year ago, Machester City bought Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne for a combined fee of over £100 million, while city rivals Manchester United are due to sign Paul Pogba to Old Trafford for a staggering £100 million. However, there have been a few bargain transfers which have worked wonders for some clubs. 

Let us take a look at five bargain transfers which worked wonders -

#5 Peter Schmeichel: Brondby IF to Manchester United for £505,000

The Danish keeper’s transfer fee is lesser than Leo Messi’s weekly wage

Considered one of the best players to have ever played in the Premier League, Danish shot-stopper Peter Schmeichel gained legendary status during his eight-year stint with English giants Manchester United. After the transfer, he was labelled by Sir Alex Ferguson as the bargain of the century. Relatively unknown outside Denmark at that time, his transfer raised a few eyebrows. However, he silenced all his critics during his stay at Old Trafford.

Peter won 15 titles with the Red Devils, which includes five EPL titles, three FA Cups, and a Champions League. During his tenure, Schmeichel made a number of crucial saves and kept 145 clean sheets in 292 appearances. Even with players like Edwin Van Der Saar and David De Gea representing United, the Danish giant will always be Manchester United’s greatest goalkeeper.
