10. Ole Gunnar Solskjær – Molde to Manchester United – £1.5 million
The Norwegian star represented an excellent value for money in 1996 when he linked up with United for a minimal fee of £1.5m from Norwegian club Molde. Widely recognised as the Premier League’s finest example of a ‘super sub’ with 29 of his 126 goals for the Red Devils coming from off the bench – highlighted best by notching a four-goal salvo in only 12 minutes as United thrashed Nottingham Forest 8-1 in 1998/99. However, he is best remembered for scoring the goal that won the club the Champions League in 1999 and has gone down as a legend in the club’s history.
