The Spanish Giants Barcelona always have been a top club in the football World. They also have one of the best football academies, which is La Masia. Football players such as Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, Carlos Puyol, and more have graduated from the youth academy of FC Barcelona.
But over the past few years, the Blaugrana have played in big money. They brought players such as Ousmane Dembélé (€105 Million) and Philippe Coutinho (€143 Million).
That hindered their financial well-being. Unlike these transfers, some players have been really valuable to the team. Let’s take a look at Barcelona’s best transfers of all time.
5. Dani Alves (€30 Million)
The 39-year-old just left the Blaugrana for the 2nd time. But the Brazilian have been an important part of the team between 2008 to 2016. He has more than 400 appearances for the club. Alves has provided 104 assists and he also scored 22 goals in his tenure for FC Barcelona.
4. Ronaldinho (€30 Million)
The great dribbler who comes from Brazil with a smiling face is the image we get in our minds when we think of Ronaldinho. The Brazilian has a big hand in helping the club reach the top when he was with the team. But later on, his fitness and lifestyle became a reason for his departure from the team.
3. David Villa (€40 Million)
The Spanish Targetman was signed by Barca when he was 29 years old. He was lethal in his first season for the club as he scored 23 goals. Villa also helped Barcelona in winning La Liga and the Champions League the same year.
David Villa went to Atletico Madrid just after 2 more years with the Blaugrana. But he’ll be remembered by the Barca fans always.
2. Neymar (€86 Million)
Another Brazilian on the list is Neymar. Messi-Suarez-Neymar was one of the most prolific attacking trios in the history of Football. Neymar and Messi’s playmaking abilities were like a cherry on the top for the target man, Luis Suarez.
Although, Neymar’s first season with the club was not too good because he required time to adapt the European football. In the 2014/15 season, Neymar scored 39 goals in 51 games.
1. Luis Suarez (€82 Million)
Signed from Liverpool FC, El Pistolero proved his worth from the time he arrived at the Blaugrana. When he was signed with Barcelona in 2014, it was the time when Suarez was banned from training with any club after biting Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup.
Later on, he went on to play 6 seasons for the team. The Uruguayan scored 195 goals and bagged a further 113 assists in 283 games.
That was our list for Barcelona’s best transfers of all time.
