One of the soap operas in this summer market that led to legal clashes between clubs due to the claims of the capital club that Barcelona had negotiated with the player without the knowledge of the club. Despite this, Griezman is already part of Barcelona where, in the absence of Messi and Suarez during the first weeks of the season, he had to lead the Catalans' attack. Appearances during the first weeks have been volatile leaves. Although his numbers can not be called negative it must be said that goals or assists have come in only 4 of the 10 appearances so far.
The start of the season from the Frenchman is definitely better than the transfer of rivals Real Madrid, Eden Hazard, and if after the return of Suarez and Messi, he manages to fit properly to the left of the Barcelona attack can create a scary trio for any opponent.

LUKAKU, Manchester UnitedInter (65M $)
Conte's Inter have indicated at the start of the season that they will be a dangerous rival to Juventus on their way to the title. The Zikaltri may have lost the Italian Derby against the whites, but they have won every other confrontation in Serie A. Of the reinforcements this summer, the most important was the approach of Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United.
After a season full of criticism, his situation with the club and the fans reached the total cooling of the relationship and as a result was among the first names that United brought to market. And while the media actually made his switch to Juventus in exchange for Dybala, the reality turned out to be totally the opposite. The Belgian was bought by Inter for 65 million euros, a sum that, at least so far, seems to have been worth it.
In the first 9 appearances with the black shirt he has managed to score 5 goals, but more important is his quick adaptation to the Italian championship and the tactics of coach Conte.
In the match against Juventus Lukaku was in the shadows, a criticism often given towards him in relation to big games, but in the end a championship is won every week, against each opponent and if Conte manages to get the most out of a striker with the potential of Lukaku, his Inter it will definitely be competitive.
JOAO FELIX, Benfica Atletico Madrid (126M $)
Another special player in this summer market. Only 19 years old and Simeone paid 126 million euros for him! Definitely the boldest bet of this summer market. The Portuguese youngster exploded last season with Benfica and attracted the attention of many European clubs, but few expected to see him with the Atletico jersey this season. However this could result in another clever move by the Argentine coach.
After Griezman's departure to Barcelona, Joao felix has the opportunity to play immediately in the starting lineup for Madrid, something that few big clubs could offer. The Simeone team is known for the defensive way of playing however an offensive midfielder with creative features and who knows how to score can be a perfect instrument to make their quick counterattacks even more dangerous.
So far Felix has scored 3 goals and provided 1 assist, but his contribution has been more than that. Of course, one cannot expect a 19-year-old to lead a team to success, but with the transfer of time to this market Felix could turn into the most ingenious market hit that Atletico has ever made.
