Odegaard - Still only 20, but was being fought over by Europe's giants when only 16. Doesn't look like he'll amount to anything more than average.
Robinho - As hyped as Neymar at the same age, actually played well for Real Madrid at time but then became a journeyman and ended up in the Chinese abyss. Now back in Europe again but nobody cares.
Mendieta - Became the most expensive player of all time when he went to Lazio, at a time when they were the financial big daddys of the world, but flunked and ended his career in Middlesborough.
Denilson - A few fancy stepovers convinced Betis (Betis!!??) to shatter the world record for him. Maybe the most famous dud of all time.
Honorable mention for Balotelli. Has won trophies but still not the man his physical talents should have made him.
Who did I forgot?
