Francesco Toldo enjoyed a fabulous 20-year pro career in football. After failing to make it at AC Milan, he left for Fiorentina and established himself as a top goalkeeper. Therefore, Inter Milan signed him for an incredible €26.5m in 2001.

Ultimately, it was money well spent.

Toldo kept 95 clean sheets in 233 appearances for the Nerazzurri and won 12 trophies. Among them was the famous treble of 2009/10, which included his fifth Serie A title and only Champions League crown.
