7. Andriy Shevchenko | Retired

Highest market value: £57m (d.o.v - June 1 2006)

Current market value: N/A

Position: Striker

Shevchenko's value peaked at just the wrong time for Chelsea. It would never again hit the heights of his AC Milan days, and Roman Abramovich bought the Ukrainian at the very worst possible time - at his most expensive.
