England international Joe Hart did not want to leave Manchester City, but he was forced to move to Torino last term on loan and shipped again on loan this summer to West Ham United. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola didn't want the Englishman anymore at the Etihad, while Theo Walcott may be compelled to quit Arsenal, the club he truly loves. Here's a look at the three players moved against their wishes:

Iker Casillas — Real Madrid

This was a really “badly managed” departure and not for the first time, Real Madrid president Fiorentino Perez really came out badly.

The former Spain international parents actually believed the keeper was treated “differently” to other players at the Bernabeu since Fiorentino Perez arrived for his second-term as the club's president in 2009. Mari Carmen said, “I've watched Casillas suffer for many years, it's Perez who's actually pushing him out because he wanted to end Casillas career at Madrid.”

When Iker Casillas left for Portuguese club CF Porto in the summer of 2015, it was very much out of the “back door” as the Spaniard arrived Bernabeu on his own to a press conference to say Goodbye to the Madrid fans with tears “streaming” down his face.

Andy Carroll — Newcastle United

This was a move which took a lot of soccer fans by “surprise,” but the former England international didn't actually want to leave the Magpies and was “gutted.” Newcastle United wanted to sell him in the summer of 2011. Carroll goals had helped Newcastle win promotion to the Premier League and Liverpool Football Club paid $45.5million (£35m) for the Englishman in January. Carroll revealed, “Derek Llambias (the club's chief executive) secretly asked me to hand in a transfer request, so I was compelled into a corner and had no choice but to accept the move at that time.”

David Ginola — Tottenham Hotspur

David Ginola joined Spurs in 1997 and would've “liked” to have ended his top-notch soccer career at the White Hart Lane, but the club's then manager George Graham decided to sell him out.

Ginola was “hugely” popular with the Spurs fans but during a summer vacation in 2000, Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar telephoned the winger to tell him George Graham didn't want him in his roster, and he was ultimately going on the club's transfer list. Obviously, it was very “disappointing” for Ginola, “I would've loved to answer a telephone call saying 'Ginola would you wish to finish up your career at Tottenham?' That was my definite aim,” he revealed.
