On the specialized site for football transfers “Transfermarkt”, a list of the 10 biggest reinforcements that arrived at another club without compensation was published, and Lionel Messi is expected to be at the top.
The best job seemed to have been done by Paris Saint-Germain, who secured two big signings during the summer transfer window for the 2021/22 season.
Lionel Messi arrived at the “Park of the Princes” from Barcelona, who at that time was worth 80 million euros according to this portal, and in the same year Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma arrived in Paris from Milan at the time of the valuation of 60 million euros.
The rich owner Al Kelaifi thought that he had made two transfers that would bring him the Champions League, but Christophe Galtier’s team failed to win the “early cup” even with two capitals in two seasons.
Messi left Paris this summer and joined Inter Miami, and in two years in Paris he played 75 games, scored 32 goals and recorded 35 assists.
In third place on this list is David Alaba, who agreed to transfer to Real Madrid when his contract with Bayern expired in the same year.
At that time, the figure for his possible compensation was estimated at 55 million euros. He played 85 games for the “royal club”, scored five goals and recorded seven assists.
Last season, he helped Madrid to their 14th Champions League trophy, and his current value is estimated at 40 million.
