I think De Bruyne and Salah might "win" this question for us...


Shame_Low

Robben too tbh


ItsLazyguy123

I strongly believe Tammy & Tomori will join this list


gettingprettyserious

Yeah Tammy's coming back. Lukaku wants out and we're not getting Haaland so our options are very limited!


Internal_Power8642

Tammy will be back in the premier, but I don't know if he'll want to go back to Chelsea. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but he spent a lot of years there not getting opportunities and may want to steer clear.


ansoniporu

The issue is the shiny new toys are pretty much obliged to play over him(Werner and then Rom) because of the price tags on strikers


Whatrutalkinabeet

Tammy will be back


ItsLazyguy123

Hopefully, I can't survive with our current strikers.


YoYo_Da

Lakaka too, but you came back to your senses


jrodriguezconlu

and now he wants out


haydar_ai

Or Lukaku, although he’s back now… but with a hefty price tag


formemes819

“What player did your club sell who went on to be successful elsewhere?” Yes


avgbsblfan643

Ndombele is next


formemes819

I could definitely see that


btmalon

Fat chance. His positioning without the ball is poor.


Rsee002

Amen.


[deleted]

Who is there other than modric and bale?


Bakio-bay

Sol Campbell, Gary Lineker


the3daves

Sol wasn’t sold. He was stolen, a free gift as it were.


formemes819

He doesn’t deserve to be named


Adamdel34

Tottenham fans when they see they see Sol Campbell written down: 'that's a weird way of spelling Judas Iscariot'


Greengum155

JUDAS


LeftHandDriveBoC

Lineker was sold by spurs to that Japanese team wasn't he? Does that count as success after they sold him?


Powerage07

Teddy Sheringham, scored in the 1999 FA Cup Final and 1999 Champions League Final for Manchester United after leaving Spurs.


ExternalNational

Trippier, eriksen, walker


Daemor

Trippier and Eriksen both won a league title the year they left Spurs. Foyth won the Europa League.


Substantial_Stand636

Berba and Carrick come to mind


FSMEDL

Walker


CaninesTesticles

Teddy sheringham, berbatov, carrick


Martin_Tonoshiro

Juan Foyth


Midnight_Maverick

Olivier Giroud, went and won the damn Europa League and Champions League titles at Chelsea!


eng-laria

Van Persie to Man Utd must have been a sore point as well


Midnight_Maverick

Yea it's not hard to make a list Ox Cole Even Henry to Barca in a way


Facciomale

Dont forget gnabry !


Midnight_Maverick

Definitely didn't, I was just focusing on players that transferred directly to the clubs where they had success, where Gnabry didn't go to Bayern directly


gq_mcgee

I don’t mind the Henry transfer. We weren’t going to deliver him a Champions League win. Two obvious ones are Giroud and RVP; Giroud captured a CL, EL, and FA Cup, and RVP obviously was the linchpin in that United side. It’s harder to lump Oxlade-Chamberlain into the same category. Did he capture a League and CL? Yeah. Was he at all integral to those successes, or is he an extraordinarily valuable player for Liverpool? Not particularly.


4evrAGunner

RVP- Don't forget he carried arsenal the season before he left.


gq_mcgee

I haven’t had my morning coffee and I missed the RVP part, thinking you were referring to Oxlade-Chamberlain! I thought to myself hey, I’ve supported Arsenal for twenty-plus, seasons blend together, but I don’t remember that! Hahaha.


ridgepact

He was already well established tbf no?


4evrAGunner

Didn't see this but made a post.


xbunnyj

Nasri to City as well! Dont forget Toure.


[deleted]

Fabregas, van persie, samir nasri....


_PeanuT_MonkeY_

I thunk u forgot Ashley Cole.


Bakio-bay

Thierry Henry


ridgepact

These people underneath talking like as if RVP or Nasri or Cole eben yourself Goroud went of to make a name for themselves after their transfer. But these players were already established. Especially Henry, RIP to whoever commented that. The one I see I Gnabry. Came up, injured, sold young, flourished in the best German side and came great. Who else have we sold similarly whose done so? (Knock on wood Saliba stays). Edit poor drunk spelling and grammar.


Svendog_Millionaire

At least he went on to worse things by starring in those Cinch adverts.


Mr_Splat

Ah, the PTSD is kicking in... Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Ince, Kanouté, Defoe (arguably) Basically the entire squad from between 2000-2003 apart from Ince


IslaLargoFlyGuy

No Tevez?


Caspera99

They didn’t sell him, because they didn’t own him…but we don’t talk about that in case Sheffield Utd are listening 😉


LeftHandDriveBoC

What about mascherano then lol!


JPST96

Declan Rice coming to that list very soon too😉


CdrMayhew

Dec is already a success


HeavyIsReliable

Diogo Jota, loved that guy


epicswag66

hell yeah!! but some people didnt share your opinion: "41M for Jota thank you liverpool" you're welcome lmao


Strike_Four

I remember thinking he was going to score every time he touched the ball outside of the 18.


eng-laria

Jota's a beast, isn't he? Great talent. He's no Steve Bull mind...


B1gD4ddy132

Robbie Keane and Joleon Lescott also spring to mind.


moviemantucson

Especially with Jimenez going down so soon after it hurt even more


[deleted]

Rooney, Arteta and Lukaku.


JesseVykar

If we include current form and not just overall performance, Stones has been pretty successful too


C1tr1cSp1c3

If you've got Lukaku and arteta on the list stones should definitely be on there.. he's won like 10 major trophies


JesseVykar

Exactly. Wasn't too happy when he left but we didn't get fleeced and he was meant for Europe so good for him


somebeerinheaven

Artetas first season for us was incredible tbh, I wish we got him 2 years sooner lol


Certain_Pineapple_73

Aaron Ramsdale (x2), Kyle Walker, Kyle Naughton, Harry Maguire, David Brooks, Dominic Calvert-Lewin


Kooky-Conclusion-516

>Harry Maguire You can have him again the fucking slabhead


noobvorld

TAKE HIM BACK THE KNOBHEAD


Certain_Pineapple_73

I'd happily have him back


eng-laria

Mate, that is a right list to be fair. You forgot Brian Deane though...legend!


Certain_Pineapple_73

Yeah, I wanted to keep it to the last 10 or so years though to ease pain!


[deleted]

Not a Southampton fan, but haven’t seen them mentioned… Tim Flowers Wayne Bridge, Virgil Van Dijk, Ben White, Tyrone Mings, Callum Chambers, Jose Fonte, Toby Alderweireld Dennis Wise, Oxlade Chamberlain, Morgan Sneiderlin Dusan Tadic, Sadio Mane, Alan Shearer, Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale, Danny Ings, Adam Lallana


thesith6969

Surprised none of us commented, because I personally love telling everyone how good we could have been if we held onto our players!


Imperial_monkey

Not sure Alderweireld can really be counted since we only had him on loan, spurs nicked him before we could sign him permanently. Could cry looking at the rest of the list though!


Adept-Elephant1948

They could have done a Leicester looking at the players that they've had in the last decade alone


HughJarse8

You forgot to mention Vestergaard and Bertrand. 😒


[deleted]

Did either go on to better things?


Andy-Is-Hot

The two best players in the league right now


UsefulExplanation8

Suarez, Ings, Alonso, Mascherano Edit: Suso, Aspas, Gulasci, Coady, Cresswell


WonderfulBlackberry9

I like the Aspas and Coady shout. Not much (if any) trophy success, but they’re huge figures in their clubs modern day history.


fleur_waratah_girl

Suso.


UsefulExplanation8

And Aspas


Tougie24

Iago Aspas


usolak6

Can't forget Luis Alberto, seems to be balling out at Lazio right now


steampunkbrownie

Sterling that absolute snake


UsefulExplanation8

No idea how I forgot about him good one


AlonsoHamiltonVettel

Don’t forget how some shite news gimmicks say salah is using liverpool to leverage his way to real madrid where he can finally become a ‘big star’


Key-Contribution-874

Diego Forlan and Gerard Pique


wildseeker91

Uh Ronaldo lmao


eng-laria

Good shout. Forlan was a beast at Atletico for sure. Pique's record speaks for itself.


Linkan1234

Forlan was the first one that came to mind. I think Jonny Evans had also gone on to do quite well after leaving United.


RTXChungusTi

Salah, KDB, arguably Mata but I forgot if we sold these guys or they left


dead_trim_mcgee1

You sold Mata but De Bruyne and Salah left at the end of their contracts I think.


Mrigank0606

Nope, all 3 were sold


Pansmoke

Alonso, Suarez, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Mascherano, Sterling. Basically if you're Spanish and you leave Liverpool you're probably going to kill it.


lockwoodben1

Unless you're Torres at Chelsea hahaha


Top-Situation-8756

He did win everything he didn’t win at Liverpool once he left!!!! One of two players (Mata) to hold the European Championship, Champions League, World Cup and Europa League all at the same time.


Pansmoke

He was successful at Chelsea lmao he just wasn't a success at Chelsea


Rollinbagell

Salah


Imaginary-Tea-2949

Edin Dzeko for Mancity, Leroy Sane too but it was obvious.


icalleveryonefinn

Jadon sancho and Harrison


alterndog

For us I’d honestly say James Tarkowski or Stuart Dallas. Both were good for us, but at their next clubs turned it up a notch. Watkins, Benhrama, and Maupay are good, but not sure if they have evolved to the next level at their new club.


timmy031

Given your business model seems slightly ironic that the 2 players you listed were sold for peanuts and the ones you turned a decent profit on aren’t.


alterndog

Remember, Dallas and Tark were sold to Championship sides not PL teams like the other three. Dallas was sold because he didn’t want to sign another contract so it limited how much we could get for him and Tark just down right refused to play for us anymore and boycotted a game. The fact we still got 4.4 mil actually surprise me. Lastly, it actually makes sense that their transfer fees were a lot lower because the other three were offensive players who normally cost more and already showed that they were great players that could compete against the best in the Championship. When we sold Dallas and Tark we had only been in the Championship 2 seasons and our track record of players being sold and going on to being successful at a higher level (either at a better Championship team or in the PL) was limited.


MoodWest

Cesc Fabregas - to think that one of our best young signings from overseas only won an FA Cup and a Community Shield (believe me I didn’t want to count this as a trophy) Is crazy to think about but we failed him in providing a squad to match his ambition and talent The fact he went on to win the trophies he did, I can’t argue that he wasn’t right to leave Arsenal 🤷🏾‍♂️😩


MikeAAStorm

Sooner or later, Donny Van De Beek will be on this list


ScrapyDan

Florian thauvin I think that's how you spell it he was a huge flop at newcastle but did very well when he moved back to France.


Joshth_01

Gini wijnaldum for me, went and won the league and CL


ScrapyDan

Yeah can't argue with him. I'm hearing he might be coming back for a loan which I'd love.


Tasty_ConeSnail

Gareth Barry


Eldraw89

Kante & Mahrez. Bloody miss those guys


gopackgo555

Luka Modric is my favorite player that left Spurs and went on to bigger things.


__jh96

Great round up mate. Hard to go past Rio to be honest.... One of the best ever in the EPL era.


tekkers92

Gnabry….


Adnaxx

Wijnaldum


adhen297

Nottingham Forest Fan. In recent memory its got to be Matty Cash going to Villa. Guy is owing it week in week out. Was a class player for us and worth alot more than what we sold him for in the end. Also got players like Michael Dawson and Andy Reid who did eventually come back.


eng-laria

I went to Nottingham Uni 'back in't day' and one of my best mates was a die-hard Forest fan. Dawson and Reid were breaking through then and he swore by them. Raved on and on about how good they were. Matty Cash obviously making a name for himself now too!

Haller. Is the main one I can think of for us, I’d say Payet, but if anything he’s dropped off a bit since leaving us.


whyarethenamesgone1

He plays well for a big team in a smaller league, no regrets to be honest, just didn't fit despite being a decent player. The 90's 2000's with Carrick, Joe Cole, Lampard, Defoe, Rio Ferdinand etc are more relevant.


YoYo_Da

Leicester’s 15-16 side is short Mahrez, Kante, Chilwell, Gray, and Kramaric


Illeaturgerbil

Chillwells a dodgy one cos he was still basically a youth player then


Pain_machine

Most recently, Ander Herrera. Don’t know why we got rid of him.


wildseeker91

Wages


Pain_machine

Criminal. His performance against Chelsea while marking hazard 100% of the game and bagging an assist and a goal should have cemented him in the squad.


Pain_machine

And he had more passion for the club than anyone has been showing lately.


wildseeker91

I'm not disagreeing with you but hindsight 20/20


PearAmbitious5200

As a Leeds fan this fucking hurt.


Beardy_Boy_

Rio and Frank are the obvious ones.

Stupid suarez Liverpool --> Barcelona


[deleted]

It's a list for most clubs. It's a mad rant for Arsenal. How many players have they sold who've gone on to win trophies elsewhere?


[deleted]

At least we made some good money out of most of the players above. Danny Rose, Fabian Delph, Alan Smith, Jermain Beckford in many ways annoyed me more as we were forced to sell them on the cheap or let them go for free because of our position. We made considerable profit on Ferdinand after we bought him as the biggest defensive transfer in world football.

Mrigank0606

Given Mata's 2 exemplary seasons with Chelsea, I won't exactly brand him a success at Utd. He's primarily been on the fringes there

Charly Musonda coming up the list next. Hudson Odoi too. Absolutely comical.

As a Chelsea fan I don't think I have to answer this question.


WolvoNeil

We've had a few of these recently at Wolves, first ones which come to mind are Pedro Goncalves and Vitinha. Jota is obviously a success at Liverpool but i'd argue he was a success at Wolves too so i'm not sure if that counts. I think luckily in recent times more players who leave end up being mediocre than going on to bigger success, look at Barry Douglas, Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Leo Bonatini, Matt Doherty, all great for Wolves and just sort of dropped off the map after leaving.


mikerotchmassive

Rio ferdinand, if only we didn't need to build a new stand.


haitch31

The one that Arsenal fans really don't understand is Serge Gnabry. He was always the exceptional talent in his age group, he was contributing to the first team and there was an obvious route to him become a regular in the squad while he developed. Meanwhile, we were playing Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi. All good players in their own ways but their development had plateaued at Arsenal. Gnabry went on loan and really struggled at West Brom, and from the outside it looks like the club made their decision to keep him/let him go based solely on that unsuccessful loan spell. So while Walcott, Ox and Iwobi did their thing, we brought in Ozil and Alexis Sánchez. There just didn't appear to be space for Gnabry, so we shipped him for a nominal fee. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. We sold Ox and Iwobi for a combined £80m, which turned us a serious profit for players who weren't exactly setting the world alight. But once Gnabry showed up at Bayern, Arsenal fans started asking questions. What did they see from the outside, that we hadn't seen from within? Now he's a first choice player for one of the best teams in the world, he mauled Tottenham singlehandedly, and he plays for Germany. What would have happened if we gave Gnabry a fair share of all those minutes we gave to Walcott, Ox and Iwobi? We'll never know, but it still leaves Arsenal fans scratching their heads as to why we let such a special talent slip through our fingers. Tldr; Serge Gnabry is class and AFC misplayed their hand with him.
