4. Antoine Griezmann
If Real Madrid landed Eden Hazard, Barcelona also answered them well by signing one of their own long-sought targets in Antoine Griezmann. The French marksman joined the Catalans in a £120m deal but has yet to reach the expected heights.
Grizou has notched 3 goals in 9 games but is yet to fully hit his peak at his new surroundings. He has shown flashes of his brilliance. Also, he is yet to form the deadly combination with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi that people have been expecting him to.
It is clear that the Frenchman will have to work harder to cement a place in Ernesto Valverde’s starting lineup.
3. Harry Maguire
Manchester United finally landed a world-class center-back in Harry Maguire, who also happened to be one of their top targets to improve their ailing defence. However, the £85m star has done little to do what he was expected to, it seems.
Even with Maguire on their side, United have conceded 8 goals in nine games, not to mention that they are currently placed 12th in the Premier League table with 8 points from 9 games.
Defensive errors have clesrly been a concern for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and even though Maguire himself hasn’t committed any silly mistakes, the overall result does reflect badly on his reputation and the things expected of him.
