The crazy market leaves us these bombs

The most spectacular transfer period in history was closed in style. Mbappé only lacked to put the icing on a market that this time moved the best.


The transfer market closed after the stipulated time and with a three-way operation that ended with Saúl at Chelsea, Griezmann at Atlético and De Jong at Barça. It was the icing on the cake for a few final days in which Mbappé was the absolute protagonist. Finally, his pass to Madrid could not be specified. Still, the market was the most spectacular and with the most stars changing teams in recent years. Even Messi and Cristiano, the two giants, packed their bags. These were the bombings of an unforgettable transfer period.

Messi (from Barça to PSG)

One of the soap operas on the market. When it seemed that he had done it after the Copa América to stay at Barça, the club informed him that it did not have economic viability to offer him another contract. That was the end of a glorious stage for Leo at Can Barça. The Argentine appeared before the media crying his eyes out, although a couple of days later he appeared in Paris to sign his contract with PSG. He has already made his debut with the Parisians and his march to French football has marked a turning point in recent football history.Sergio Ramos (from Madrid to PSG)

The situation of the white captain was unleashed at the beginning of July. Although he acknowledged that he had accepted Madrid's renewal offer, the white club told him that it had already expired and that he would not continue in the discipline. Ramos, absent from the Eurocup due to injury and also due to a technical decision by Luis Enrique, accepted PSG's proposal to set out on a new course in Paris. Surely he did not know that Messi would accompany him shortly after. Nor that the soap opera Mbappé would end with a happy ending for their interests.Cristiano Ronaldo (from Juventus to United)

Five days before the end of the market, Cristiano's day in the market was experienced. The Portuguese left the Juve facilities in a black van after communicating that he was leaving the club. Then he would set off for Lisbon in a private jet. Virtually everyone took it for granted that he would sign for Manchester City, with whom he entered into talks, but the intervention of Álex Ferguson made him change sides in the city and return to Manchester United, the club with which he rose to stardom. .

Grealish (from Aston Villa to Manchester City)

The most expensive transfer on the market (117 million), only two more than what Chelsea later paid for Lukaku. Pep Guardiola insisted on Grealish for his team's creation zone, despite the fact that he needed a striker more (he was negotiating with Tottenham for Bale for similar figures). It seemed like it was going to be the most powerful move for its cost, but many cheaper ones ended up overshadowing it. Still, the amount paid to Villa is so high that he became the seventh most expensive footballer in history.Griezmann (from Barça to Atlético)

Almost on the horn was made the move from Griezmann back to Atlético. Nobody could imagine it a few days ago, but Saúl's departure and Simeone's desire to recover a player who he made one of the best in the world led him back to the Metropolitan. It leaves in Barça the feeling of being one of the worst signings in history (bought for 120 and sold by transfer and compulsory purchase of 50), but above all a void of stars in the club that supposes a deep depression. Koeman will have to deal with it.
