Often, the summer transfer window is talked about in terms of what the players can get out of it. We ask what's best for the player, where the player would fit most, how the player can get the most money and what the most practical outcome would be for a certain player and his individual style.
However, in doing that, we often end up forgetting about the clubs these players belong to, and the football clubs should also be looking to do what's best for them this summer. They, too, should be looking to offload the deadweight players that are bogging down their team and bring in new players that are more worthwhile—trimming the fat, per se.

Here are a few deadweight players who should be sold by their clubs.
