Barcelona have made some financial decisions in the last few years that made Football enthusiasts question the transfer policy of the Spanish giant. In the last 5 years, Barcelona have spent more than £300million on Squad upgrade which all turned to be blunder transfer decision. It all started when Neymar Jr left the club for PSG in 2017 for a world record fee of €222million.
It's been weeks since the conclusion of the summer transfer window, and the 2021-22 season has gone too far for all leagues. Some newly signed players are still finding it difficult to adapt to their current clubs while the football managers are looking for ways in which they can use these players.
A period of adaptation with a new signing is always to be expected, but after 304 minutes, more was expected from Griezmann, especially since he knows the club, the coach, LaLiga Santander and he arrived at the game in the same shape as he had been playing before with the Barcelona.
Several players had a shorter preseason than they had hoped after a delayed season-ending and a busy summer with international football. A few players have hit the ground running, however. European stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku were in top form during the summer. Despite moving to different clubs, they have carried forward this form.
On August 29, 2010, 19-year-old Antoine Griezmann made his LaLiga Santander debut for Real Sociedad after impressing with LaLiga Smartbank squad the previous season. It was the start of a brilliant decade that made him one of Atletico Madrid's biggest signings for € 30million in 2014, immediately catching attention.
They are some new signings who are struggling in their new clubs, but there's still time to understand the manager's style of play. I could see that the rival fans are making a lot of fun out of Lionel Messi and Jadon Sancho, but they are not the only new signings that are yet to score. I will be showing you the players that are yet to register a goal or assist in their new clubs. 1.

Ronald Koeman is receiving all the blame from the Barcelona fans, and the rival fans are also making fun of him and the club, that's very bad, but in this kind of situation, you can never blame the manager, according to my opinion. He should not be blamed for the club's current form, and I will be showing you the reasons why I said so.
Barcelona were known for making erratic purchases to suit their marketing demands under Josep Bartomeu. Three players worth more than €100 million — Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, and Antoine Griezmann — were signed in five transfer windows, mostly due to poor scouting. With Joan Laporta at the lead, things are likely to change dramatically.
When Antoine Griezmann joined Atletico Madrid on loan from Barcelona with a €40 million buyout option, many of Atletico Madrid expected better from him on his return to the club, but so far, the reverse is the case. Antoine Griezmann, on loan at Atlético Madrid from Barcelona, is yet to register a shot on target this season in 7 matches.
If there was a word to describe the previous window, “Homecoming” seemed appropriate. After a difficult spell with the Toffees, the Old Ladies look to resurrect the career of their former wonderkid, Moise Kean; Antoine Griezmann, the once prodigal son of Atletico Madrid, returns to the Wanda Metropolitano, seeking reconciliation with those he had broken.
Memphis Depay is a man that has played for some of the top clubs in Europe. He started out at PSV Eindoven, before going to Manchester United and later ending up in Lyon before joining Barcelona last summer. He joined Barcelona at a time when the club are in need of natural strikers due to one thing or another.
Luis Suarez is the target man for Atletico Madrid, meaning he is the striker that they all depend on for goals. Last season, after joining from FC Barcelona, he scored 21 league goals for Atletico Madrid and guided them to the La Liga title in the process.

Already they are La Liga champions and also they are really doing well in the ongoing UEFA Champions League. They have star strikers like Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann and also they have the presence of Yannick Carrasco in their squad too. By the look of things, if Atletico Madrid are to field Carrasco, Suarez and Griezmann in a three man attack, then there is a possibility that they will not be short of goals in important matches.
After the exit of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona seems to be short in attack. During Barcelona's recent game against Bayern Munich, the team failed to register a single shot on goal. Well, a closer look at the game indicates that Barcelona's attack was blunt.
I would say that the UEFA Champions League is the best tournament in football, the feeling is so amazing and if you club failed to participate in the tournament, you will never be happy. After the games tonight, I will be showing you things I noticed from the UEFA Champions League Matchday one.
Forwards are probably the most interesting players to watch on the football pitch. This is because they provide most of the goals and assists that make football interesting to watch.

Barcelona had a difficult summer ahead of the new season. The club is in serious financial crisis that saw them lose Lionel Messi.

Injury has already sidelined Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero, and Ansu Fati, while Martin Braithwaite is likely to undergo knee surgery, and Antoine Griezmann has returned to Atletico Madrid.
