Alan Shearer and his move to become one of the greatest
Alan Shearer, the English footballer, played for Southampton in first division competitions. A 6-year spell at Southampton lured many managers to get him into their squad including Sir Alex Ferguson. But Blackburn Rovers made a bid of record-breaking £3.6 million. Both the parties agreed and Alan moved to Blackburn Rovers. The deal was confirmed today, on 27th July 1992.
The move later proved to be a career-defining moment as he quickly became the indispensable member of the Rovers.
Over the 4 seasons with Rovers, he scored 130 goals in 170 games including every different competition.
