The 30 years midfield Miralem Pjanić to Barcelona there was no way we could make this squad without giving you another reminder that Barcelona swapped Arthur Mello for Miralem Pjanić this window in a team that was crying out for youth, the Blaugrana plump for the 30-year-old Bosnian while sending a 24-year-old Brazilian back to Juventus,
not only that they bought a man in decline as in 19/20 Pjanić hit the lowest key pass in shots per 90 numbers of any of his past six seasons in fairness to the former Roma star he will offer Barcelona some much-needed creativity in the midfield and may find a fresh challenge in a new league is just what he needs to rediscover some form but it shows the poor leadership at Barcelona that Arthur had to be sacrificed
in order to make this move happen as the former Gremio man really didn’t want to leave with Messi ahead of him Pjanić numbers will probably improve this season but as a long-term solution to Barca midfield needs this move is frankly disappointing.
Weston McKennie to Juventus we could easily be wrong but it’s hard to see how Weston McKennie move to Juventus benefits either the player or the club McKennie was a solid box to box midfielder for Schalke last season making 28 appearances in the Bundesliga
but in reality, he wasn’t one of the vital performers in his side ranking seventh in the Schalke squad for shock creating actions and third in the midfield for tackle’s inceptions as a defensive force suicider was much more productive a rumored switch to either Southampton or Aston Villa was understandable though no one would have predicted Juventus making an approach of their own McKennie eventually signed on for a season-long loan with a 16.5 purchase option at the end of the season the American international joins a stacked midfield at the old lady with Khedira, Rabiot Ramsey, and Rodrigo Bentancur not only that Arthur Melo arrives in Turin for a massive 72 million pounds and will be expecting to play despite playing well on his debut against Sampdoria the 22-year-old could be in for a long season on the bench
Inter Milan and the new signing of Arturo Vidal proves once again that Antonio Conte has no interest in building a long-term project at inter Milan and would rather chase immediate success he has already signed a 34-year-old Aleksandar Kolarov along with a 2020 surprise package Ashley Young now 35 and pushed hard to bring in a 33-year-old Vidal that was despite inter having the opportunity to sign Italian sensation Sandro Tonali who ultimately went to AC Milan after Kante showed a preference towards the veteran Chilean midfielder
in the short term Vidal will probably do okay for inter especially in an attack last season he scored eight and assisted two for Barca despite dropping to just 1.3 shots per 90 but his defensive actions per game are all in decline suggesting the speed of the game is catching up with a former Bayern star Nerazzurri fans are understandable bereft at the decision to sign Vidal over Tonali because once Conte inevitably leaves following a boom and bust tenure in charge all that will be left behind is an aging squad with little value going forward.
Alvaro Morata to join Atletico Madrid strictly speaking permanent 57.5 million pound switch to Atletico Madrid from Chelsea was agreed back in July 2019 six months into an 18-month loan deal but considering his form in front of the goal in that time the rocky Blancos probably wished they could go back on that decision in a year and a half he has only scored 18 times in La Liga and registers just over one shot on target per game in fact morata scores with less than one in five of his attempts on goal when you consider the fact 161 million pounds has been spent on the 27-year-old over the years that goal return simply has to be better
Atletico may have struggled for creativity in the midfield in 19/20 but the fact that Simeone was playing Diego costa ahead of Morata towards the end of the season indicates that the Spanish international could do more, 57 million pounds is a lot to spend on a striker that occasionally scores and Simeone will know that money could have been better spent improving other areas of the squad.
what’s shocking is that Morata could actually be on the move again this summer as Juventus reportedly want to bring him back to Turin on a 9 million pound loan deal with a 41 million pound option to buy it would be yet another staggering transfer for the Spaniard and one we just can’t get our heads around so guys that was our 11 of the worst signings of the summer what did you guys think of the list do you think any of the inclusions were unfair and do you think anyone else should have made it let me know in the comments down below if you enjoyed this video don’t forget to like it and subscribe to the channel and i’ll see you next time
