3. Radamel Falcaoto AS Monaco - £50m
The transfer of Colombian goal machine to Monaco from Atletico Madrid for £50million baffled many as he was the most sought-after striker in the transfer market this summer.
Could have easily moved to any European giants but chose to join the newly-promoted French side AS Monaco as their project appealed to him the most.
The start of the 2013/14 season has been great with him scoring three goals in four outings with Monaco at the top of the Ligue 1 standings after four matches.
A nightmare for defenders, Falcao has had breathtaking spells at Porto and Madrid and would like to continue the success story.
The French club will definitely get their money’s worth with this acquisition.
