The window of traspasos that closed does hardly some weeks came to an end after big and important movements of market in the three 'big' of LaLiga Santander: the FC Barcelona, the Real Madrid and the Athletic. Each one of them invested more than 100 million euros to achieve reinforce with his 'galactic' but, for the moment, seems that the investment has not been profitable.

Antoine Griezmann turned into player of the FC pertinent Barcelona of the Athletic of Madrid; the picture colchonero decided to give him relief with Joao Félix, young perla of the Benfica; and the Real Madrid brought to Eden Hazard, that was the star of Chelsea. To the three is costing them adapt to his new team.

Griezmann, destellos in the Barça

The FC Barcelona bet for paying the clause of rescission of Antoine Griezmann to the Athletic of Madrid, what supposed an outlay of 120 million euros. The French already had been objective culé a year before, but in a first moment had not decided to give the step and did not want to leave happen the second opportunity to do it.

The French forward was request of Ernesto Valverde for his forward, but now the ex of the Athletic does not find his location in the terrain of game. It is true that has achieved to mark three goals, two of them in a partidazo that marked against the Real Betis, but in the rest of meetings does not have reencontrado with his best version.

As false nine when Luis Suárez was lesionado, Griezmann had a more participatory paper but, when the Uruguayan has gone back, the French has moved to the band in a position in which it seems very stray. In spite of that in the Real Sociedad played in this same place, in the Barça does not attain to find to if same. Still it has time to work, but expects more than him, seeing what achieved in the Athletic.

Joao Félix, some that another chispazo

The Athletic of Madrid needed to a crack that could cover the gap left by Antoine Griezmann and bet for carrying to Joao Félix of the Benfica paying 127 million euros to the Portuguese team. A risky bet, treating of a youngster of hardly 19 years in spite of his enormous talent. His pre-season was absolutely formidable, but now seems something stagnated.

The Portuguese attacker is leaving some that another chispazo of pure class, played of fantasy of those that only see in the vídeoconsolas or been born of the boots of Leo Messi, but the problem is that these arrive in dropper. Still it seems green to lead to the team as it did it Griezmann and will touch to have patience.

The Portuguese carries two goals in eight parties, although his presence on the terrain of game happens more unobserved of what expected . And proof of this is that Diego Pablo Simeone, in spite of that always it defends it publicly, is used to to substitute him in the second times. Like Griezmann, needs adaptation.

Hazard, desesperante in the Real Madrid

The Real Madrid also arrived to the 100 million euros (an operation with Chelsea in which it includes the payment of some variable no desvelados officially) to reinforce with his new 'galactic', Eden Hazard, but the performance of the Belgian maybe was the most toneless of the three, if we compare it with Griezmann and Joao Félix.

The Portuguese and the French have given brushstrokes of his quality in his teams, but to the Belgian sees him in a state of form preocupantemente low. Hazard Seems to have lost all the spark that had in Chelsea and in the selection of Belgium. No desborda and is not decisive with his actions, although it also is true that suffered an injury that has left him play little.

Of course, the talent does not lose and follows it having, but has to put in shape because the team needs him. Besides, Vinícius seems that it is recovering the confidence in his game and Zidane is not of which thinks it to him to the hour to seat to a star.
