If we rewind almost two years from now, you'd be very surprised to hear who you could snap up for bargain prices.

According to the transfermarkt.com statistics, football clubs potentially missed out on some of today's world-class players back in January 2012, who's market values have catapulted since.

Considering the year we've had with transfers, with the world record fee being smashed once again, football clubs have been tempted to spend big, and in the Premier League this was evident, as a total of £630million was splashed on new signings.

Although these clubs wouldn't have had to spend so much on the same players two years ago, who were worth fractions of their value in the present day.

With this is mind, we should look at how much money clubs could have saved (and now wasted), should they have signed some of today's best players when they were arguably lesser-known and ultimately less expensive.

This list shows the best-valued players of 2012: (according to market value increase)

12. Oscar (Chelsea) Value from 2012-13: £7,000,000 to £26,500,000

Value increase: £19,500,000
