5 Biggest BPL Losses

Soccer has a lot of player movement. It's very rare for a guy to really settle in at a club. So big name players are constantly shifting teams, leagues and countries. The BPL may have acquired a ton of talent, but they’ve lost a ton of talent to other European giants as well. These are the five biggest BPL players that will be suiting up in another country this year.

Cole and David Luiz were both dynamic on Chelsea’s back line, but they’re both moving on from the Blues to a new home, and they’'ve already been promptly replaced.

4. Patrice Evra to Juventus

Just like David Luiz was to Chelsea, Evra was there for Manchester United through and through. Despite where he says his heart lies, he will now be suiting up for a Juventus squad that is in a major transitioning period.

3. Frank Lampard to NYC FC

This move is more so big from the symbolic standpoint. Seeing a longtime fixture like Frank Lampard was at Chelsea depart is always a bit shocking, but seeing him come to the MLS is a welcome sight for American soccer.

2. David Luiz to PSG

I found this one shocking. David Luiz was synonymous with Chelsea for the longest time, yet one of the first moves of the summer saw him departing for France.

The biggest transfer of the summer, and involving one of the most controversial players. The vampiric Suarez has shipped off from England to the Catalan Giants of Barcelona and is now teaming up with Lionel Messi and Neymar. Good luck contending with that, La Liga.
