Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018 and joined Juventus for a transfer fee of €126 million. In that process, he became the most expensive over 30-year-old player in football history, not to mention one of the most expensive players of all time.
After two years, Miralem Pjanic left Juventus in 2020 and joined Barcelona for €60 million. Until then, he was counted as one of the best midfielders in the world but his departure from Italy saw his downfall.
Barcelona paid €60 million to Bayern Munich for Robert Lewandowski. Despite of the fact that he was one of the reasons behind Barca’s 8-2 defeat against Bayern in UEFA Champions League, the Spanish club didn’t hesitate a bit and signed him to strengthen their attack.
In a recent interview, the journalist asked Lewa if his teammates have talked about the 8-2 incident yet or not and he said he has not been speaking about it with his new teammates.
“I have to admit that we haven’t spoken about it,” Lewandowski said.
“That’s in the past and it’s best to not look back. That’s our way of thinking.”
