3 New Signings Who Are Yet To Score A Goal Or Provide An Assist This Season

Despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost every major club in Europe made a big-money signing in the summer transfer window and there were plenty of records broken, with the Premier League leading the way with over £1.1 billion spent.

1. Jadon Sancho

Sancho, who finally completed his move to Old Trafford from German giants Borussia Dortmund in July for a £72.9million fee, has had a disappointing start to life in England.

The England international has failed to score or provide an assist in his first seven appearances for United in all competitions. However, he has struggled to match the levels he reached whilst at Dortmund.

2. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi is yet to prove his worth at Paris Saint-Germain following his summer arrival. The 34-year-old linked up with the French giants after his exit from Barcelona but he has struggled on the pitch. Messi has failed to score or provide an assist from his three outings for PSG.

Messi was undoubtedly the top player in Catalonia, but that isn't the case in Paris. His former Barca team-mate Neymar and World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe are the top two players at the club.

3. Griezmann

On 31 August 2021, Griezmann returned to Atlético Madrid on a one-year loan, with the option to extend the loan by a further year, and complete with an obligatory permanent transfer clause worth €40 million to be activated by 2023. He has scored 0 times after 7 match days in the season 2021/2022.
