The five-time world best player Cristiano Ronaldo who moved to Manchester United for little more than £12m from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 won over signings of Thierry Henry for Arsenal, Mohamed Salah for Liverpool and Sergio Aguero for Manchester City

Ronaldo came out on top in a countdown of the 20 greatest Premier League deals that the Transfer Show panel chose on a special Christmas Day programme on Sky Sports News.



He was one of four Manchester United players in the top 10 along with Eric Cantona, Roy Keane and Wayne Rooney.

United signed Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon for £12m in August 2003. During six seasons at Old Trafford, he won eight major trophies including three Premier League titles and the Champions League. During a stellar career, he has scored more than 750 goals, won 30 major trophies, five Ballon d'Ors and two Best FIFA men's player of the year awards.

Thierry Henry came second even though many would argue he made more of an impact in the Premier League than Ronaldo. Arsenal signed him in the summer of 1999 for £11m from Juventus. During eight seasons at Highbury, he became an Invincible, won two titles and broke the club's goalscoring record.
