The madness of the summer transfer window is almost as thrilling as football itself. The eccentric rumours and audacious speculation coupled with surprise moves and overall the usual dominance of the heavily invested giants. It provides magnificent attention and debate over just who will end up where by the commencement of the upcoming season.

It is often young talent, whose ability achieved fruition with a small club, that is targeted whilst the best performers for their campaigns also command heavy attention. Near thousands are rumoured to be departing their clubs but little properly materializes.

However there is often the madness of clubs paying what appears to be a ridiculous amount for a player whose errors outweigh the plaudits. Destined to fail and such a commanding price it creates fury and anger throughout World Football fans.

The 2011 summer transfer window is destined to have all the ingredients of a sizzling period. Already much action has occurred with the likes of English sensation Phil Jones signing with Manchester United for £16 million and Jordan Henderson joining Liverpool for a potential £20 million.

However it is certain for the bigger sides to announce purchases for players barely worth the sum or signings that are just overrated in general. So in recognition of the whirlwind summer transfer window, Bleacher Report acknowledges the 20 most overrated players on the transfer market.
