2. Angel Di Maria (€75m)

Angel Di Maria is remembered quite fondly at Real Madrid. He originally signed from Benfica in 2010, for a transfer fee paid by Real Madrid of €33m. The silky Argentine baller produced the best football of his career in the football capital.

Ultimately, Di Maria played for Real Madrid for a total of four years, clearly impressing those across the pond as he eventually made the switch to Manchester United. In 2014, Manchester United signed Angel Di Maria for a transfer fee of €75m, paid to Real Madrid. This makes Angel Di Maria the second most expensive Real Madrid sale of all-time.

Of course, we all know the unfortunate fate suffered by Angel Di Maria at Manchester United. Long story short, he was a shell of the player he was at Real Madrid. Either way, it was smart business by Real Madrid to not only bring him in but sell him at the right opportunity.

Angel Di Maria went on to win the World Cup so he can have no regrets looking back at his illustrious career.
