Antoine Griezmann (€120m to Barcelona)

Given Antoine Griezmann’s devastating ability at Atletico Madrid, it seemed inevitable that his big-money move to Barcelona would be successful in 2019. However, that was far from the case.

While it was not disastrous in terms of numbers – Griezmann managed 35 goals and 17 assists in 102 games – the French forward quickly felt the wrath of supporters whose patience wore thin quickly. His presence also symbolised the club’s much wider problem with financial mismanagement.

Now back at Atletico permanently following a two-year loan spell, Griezmann’s superb midfield performances at the 2022 World Cup show he feels much better at the Wanda Metropolitano.
