Paul Scholes

The case of Manchester United legendary midfielder was different because he virtually stepped out of retirement to make a return to Old Trafford for his second spell.

Paul Pogba

The France international would have been the last player on this list but Cristiano Ronaldo's return makes him the 4th on the list.
