Go to the winter market is one of the options that clubs cling to fill gaps in planning carried out in summer. But nevertheless, This situation is no guarantee of success, rather the opposite is that there are few who have succeeded in the winter and those who have been unsuccessful signings.

Julien Faubert

It was the weirdest signing of Real Madrid in the XXI century. In the winter of 2009, Real Madrid decided to pay 1,5 million from the sale of this unknown French player from the Premier, which also brought a purchase option for nothing more and nothing less than 5 millions of euros. Faubert added 56 minutes 6 months and left the Madrid club to complete a poor race and without much significance. The strange thing is that all come to play Real Madrid.

Stan Collymore

English, in a clear downhill personnel and career, He had been accused of ill-treatment and admitted to a clinic after acknowledging that he had attempted suicide 1999, just two years before joining Oviedo. And if that was not enough, On arrival at the Asturian city, He weighed 102 kg. Let's go, that his playing career seemed to be clinched as well but it was clear in Oviedo.

Radomir Antic was the leading backer of Collymore. It crashed in a big way with him.

Manteca Martínez

The Uruguayan was a very contrasting front and an idol in South America teams like Boca Juniors. However on arrival in the winter market 1998, it appeared that little or nothing left of that player.

Unfortunately for him, Strong decided to start his career in the Spanish League proclaiming in his presentation that he was the "mix" of Ronaldo and Rivaldo, to finish concluding it was like Ronaldo but without or. At those moments, Ronaldo was the best striker in the world by far and Rivaldo one of the most talented football players Renaldo universe and a front lot more than taking advantage of the first “boom” televisions in football. Media very poor season and several assignments were his baggage in the Depor who had paid 350 million euros for him in the winter of 1997.
