- Real Madrid is one of the most active clubs in the transfer market. Unfortunately, the results obtained sometimes do not match the expectations.

As one of the teams with the strongest financial potential, Madrid have the freedom to move in the transfer market. Madrid are often known for buying players at inflated prices.

In fact, Madrid once built a star-studded team nicknamed Los Galacticos. Not just once, but twice.

However, Real Madrid was not always lucky in the process. Madrid often select the wrong players. There are different reasons. Adaptation problems, playing minutes and injuries are often the actors behind the decline.

The following are five Real Madrid signings who deserve to be labeled as failures.

Luka Jovic (Eintracht Frankfurt to Real Madrid, 2019)

Luka Jovic is brought on as a replacement for Karim Benzema. However, at El Real it was mostly a disaster.

Luka Jovic comes with a five-star reputation. He scored 27 goals in 48 games with Frankfurt in the 2018-2019 season. Madrid spent 60 million euros to sign Jovic.

However, in his first season, Jovic didn't make much of an impact in practice. He couldn't get rid of Karim Benzema as Madrid's main force.

Luka Jovic has made 17 appearances in La Liga. 13 of that number came from the bench. Jovic only scored two goals.

Now Jovic has left Madrid. After previously strengthening Fiorentina, he headed to AC Milan.

Ricardo Kaka (AC Milan to Real Madrid, 2009)

Real Madrid made two big transfers in the summer of 2009. First, Los Blancos spent £80 million to lure Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United. Another is the transfer of Ricardo Kaka from AC Milan, which cost 67 million euros.

However, only Ronaldo's transfer has borne sweet fruit. Meanwhile, Kaka could not turn on.

Of course, Kaka was one of the best midfielders when defending Milan. He scored 95 goals in 270 games. Kaka led the Rossoneri to the Scudetto and the Champions League.

During his four years in Madrid, Kaka was in and out of the treatment rooms. He scored only 23 goals in La Liga.

Kaka has always been in the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo. He eventually returned to Milan on a free transfer.

Jonathan Woodgate (Newcastle United to Real Madrid, 2004)

Jonathan Woodgate didn't make Real Madrid spend as much money as some of the other names on this list. Madrid only spent 18.3 million euros. However, what he has in common with other players on the list is failure.

Worse, Jonathan Woodgate failed to play a single game in his first season with Madrid. He had a long injury.

Unfortunately, on his debut against Athletic Bilbao in September 2005, Woodgate scored an own goal and received a red card. Fortunately, Madrid won 3-1.

Jonathan Woodgate has only made 14 appearances for Madrid. In the year In 2007, it was voted Madrid's worst signing of the 21st century Brand name

Theo Hernandez (Atletico Madrid to Real Madrid, 2017)

Theo Hernandez's move to Madrid has sparked controversy. Hernandez left for direct rivals Atletico.

Madrid have signed Theo Hernandez after activating his €24m release clause. However, the player's days are mostly spent on loan.

Theo Hernandez has only played in 23 matches in all competitions for Madrid. He was then loaned to Real Sociedad by Madrid for the 2018-2019 season.

Now Theo Hernandez has moved to AC Milan. The Rossoneri spent €20 million to sign the French defender.

Eden Hazard (Chelsea to Real Madrid, 2019)

After Gareth Bale, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid are once again looking at the Premier League as a field for new players. This time, the choice is Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Madrid need 100 million euros for Chelsea to be willing to let Hazard go. This price makes Hazard one of the most expensive players in Madrid's history.

However, Madrid did not get what they expected from Hazard. An accident is more likely to end up in the treatment room. In his first season, Hazard scored just one goal in 16 games.

This poor performance continued in subsequent seasons. In the end, Hazard chose to raise the white flag and hang up his boots.
