  1. Neymar (from Barcelona to PSG in 2017)

Neymar played an important role in Barca’s treble of major titles in 2015. The Blaugrana became the first club to achieve this feat twice. But with the ambition to get out of the shadow of former teammate Messi and create his own aura, Neymar chose to leave.

PSG with the investment of Qatar owners spent 222 million euros to bring back the striker born in 1992. This number is double the previous world record that Manchester United created with the Paul Pogba deal.

This move has had a significant impact on the transfer market. After PSG bought Neymar, clubs started asking for more money for their stars. There is a remarkable number 7 out of 10 of the most expensive deals of all time were made after Neymar arrived in the French capital.

2 of which were created by Barca in an attempt to find a Brazilian substitute (Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele). So far, Neymar’s transfer is still a turning point for the market and a change in the way players are judged.

  1. Ronaldinho (from PSG to Barcelona in 2003)

Former Barca president, Joan Laporta once intended to bring in one of the famous names in the early 2000s like David Beckham, Thierry Henry or Ronaldinho to create a new era at the club. Their final choice is “Ro thug”, a year after he shined in the 2002 World Cup.

Barca’s 30 million euro contract is considered worth every penny. The Catalonia team could not have even one La Liga title in the 2000s until the Brazilian star joined.

Here, Ronaldinho became the inspiration for Barca to conquer a series of successes. He and them won two consecutive La Liga titles and ended 14 years waiting to get the Champions League in 2006. Ronaldinho left Barca for AC Milan in 2008. From there, Messi continued his No.10 shirt in the same role. The locomotive helps the Blaugrana achieve many achievements later.

  1. Luis Figo (from Barcelona to Real Madrid in 2000)

Luis Figo to Real Madrid from his arch rival Barcelona remains one of the most controversial transfers of all time. The Portuguese was dragged by Los Blancos president Florentino Perez to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in 2000.

After 5 years with Real, Figo and Real won 2 La Liga and 1 Champions League.

After winning the Ballon d’Or that year, Figo marked the start of the Galacticos era with a €62 million transfer. Real Madrid then continued to sign a series of world-class superstars including Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo Nazario, David Beckham … After 5 years with Real, Figo won 2 La Liga and 1 Champions League with Real. However, this was a time when the Portuguese legend went through many troubles due to the hostility of the two clubs.

The battles of El Clasico during this period became unprecedentedly intense. Barca fans are extremely outraged when the former club captain ends his shirt to Real. In a specific confrontation, Figo when stepping out at the corner kick, received countless strange objects from coins, bottles to a pig hand.

Barca’s “Judas” and Real have confirmed the strength of the number one Spanish club during the years at the Bernabeu. Then the generation of superstars like Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi appeared to help the Blaugrana reverse the situation.

  1. Eric Cantona (from Leeds to Man United in 1992)

In 1992, Manchester United cost a record £1.2 million to get Eric Cantona from Leeds United. However, few people envision it will be a transfer shocking the football world.

Cantona has always been a player who can change the game with a magical moment.

Cantona went to Old Trafford and helped MU win the Premier League title in the first season. That was the foundation for the later era of undisputed rule of the Red Devils. Sir Alex’s army won a total of 4 Premier League titles and 2 FA Cups while Cantona was still in the shirt. After 143 appearances for them, the French legend has 64 goals.

Not only scoring records that make Cantona special. This is always a player who can change the game with a magical moment. Cantona’s influence on the spirit of the entire MU team at that time was great.

His arrogance, sophistication and expertise have made Cantona an outstanding player in all aspects. There was controversy, but what he did on the pitch was incredible. Until now, Cantona is still considered as King at Old Trafford.

  1. Alfredo Di Stefano (From Millonarios to Real Madrid in 1953)

Real Madrid is considered by many to be the greatest club on the planet thanks to their resounding successes in Spain and Europe. Both La Liga (34) and Champions League (13), Los Blancos are leading now. A sizable portion of Real’s illustrious history has been achieved in the 20th century with an arguably extraordinary contract. The deal of Alfredo Di Stefano from Millonarios to Real in 1953 was initially controversial.

The Madrid team stole the Argentine legend right before Barcelona’s eyes. After that, it’s just history. Di Stefano and Real conquered 8 Spanish championships and 5 C1 cups in 11 years of sticking. The man who died in 2014 also won two Golden Balls while at Madrid. In total, Di Stefano has 308 goals in 396 matches for Real.
