FameRank: 4

"Christian Vieri" is a retired Italian Association football/footballer who played as a centre forward (association football)/forward for the Italy national football team and 11 Serie A clubs, most notably Inter Milan/Internazionale.

Vieri was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 greatest living footballers selected by Pelé as a part of FIFA's centenary celebrations. For a number of years he was regarded as one of the finest strikers in Europe, leading to him becoming the List of most expensive association football transfers/world's most expensive player in 1999 when Inter paid S.S. Lazio/Lazio £32 million (€43 million) for his services.

Something of a footballing nomad, Vieri played for no fewer than 12 clubs throughout his career. Most notable were his successful spells at Juventus, Atlético Madrid, Lazio and Inter, clubs with which he won several honours; with Inter he hit the net on more than 100 occasions.
