It has always been a rare sight to see English footballers plying their trade outside the Premier League.
There are hardly a few top players in every generation who receive offers from other top European leagues and move out of England to make a career.
A few of the prominent English players who decided to leave the Premier League at some point in their careers are David Beckham, Gary Lineker, Michael Owen and Paul Gascoigne.
Both Beckham and Owen played for Real Madrid in the mid-2000s. Beckham even played for AC Milan, LA Galaxy and PSG. Lineker and Gascoigne, on the other hand, played for FC Barcelona and Lazio.
Among the current crop of players, Jadon Sancho began his professional career with Borussia Dortmund before moving to Manchester United in the 2021/22 season. His former teammate Jude Bellingham is currently plying his trade with the Bundesliga side.
