While Salah’s time at Chelsea was not as successful as expected, with limited appearances and loan spells, his subsequent success at Liverpool, including winning the Premier League and Champions League, suggests that selling him may not have been the best decision in hindsight.

Salah arrived at Chelsea for €16.50m from Swiss outfit Basel and at least got a little bit more of a chance than De Bruyne did – all of 13 league matches before he was sent out on loan to Roma. His impressive performance at Roma persuade them to pay about €15.00m for him in 2016. Chelsea didn’t even turn a profit on the trade.

Much like De Bruyne, Salah only took one year to prove he was worth a whole lot more cash. Liverpool’s deal was worth up to €42.00m. 207 Liverpool goals and 92 assists later, a whole string of records broken, letting one Premier League great slip through was the one of the biggest mistake of Chelsea next to De Bruyne’s sale.

Kevin De Bruyne was signed by Chelsea for £7m and given just 3 Premier League games to show what he could do before Chelsea flogged him to Wolfsburg for €22.00m.

Manchester City dropped €76.00m on De Bruyne all of one year later, which should tell you that Chelsea might have slightly misjudged the market for him – and that alone would probably be enough to turn the decision into a blunder.

Since joining Manchester City, De Bruyne bagged 98 goals and 166 assists, established himself as arguably the best attacking midfielder in the world and won practically everything.

Eric Cantona’s time at Leeds United was marked by success and controversy. He joined Leeds midway through the 1991/92 season and played a key role in helping them win the league title that season. However, his relationship with manager Howard Wilkinson soured, leading to his departure from the club. Cantona famously faxed his transfer request to Leeds in November 1992, expressing his desire to join either Manchester United, Arsenal, or Liverpool. Just two days later, he made the move to Manchester United for a fee of £1 million.

Eric Cantona’s signing changed Manchester United’s history significantly by catalyzing the club’s success and transforming its fortunes. Cantona’s arrival at Old Trafford in 1992 marked a turning point for Manchester United, as he played a pivotal role in helping the team win four Premier League titles in 1994, 1996, and 1997, along with two FA Cups. His impact on the team was immense, with United winning titles and achieving success that had eluded them for years.

Cantona’s influence extended beyond his on-field performance; he developed a special relationship with the United supporters, becoming a hero and an iconic figure at the club. His signing not only brought success on the pitch but also instilled a winning mentality and belief within the club that led to further achievements under Sir Alex Ferguson’s management. Cantona’s contribution to Manchester United’s history remains unparalleled, solidifying his status as the ultimate hero of the club.

Chelsea releasing De bruyne without giving him a proper chance is probably the biggest mistake ever made in football in terms of transfers. He has gone on to become one of the best midfielders in premier league history.

Chelsea had Mo Salah, gave him little chances to prove himself and sold him off to Roma, where he transformed his game and became one of the most exciting wingers in world football, and then followed it up with a move to Liverpool where he’s currently writing history. A big mistake by Chelsea in every way you look at it.
