#4 Juventus - €151.5 million
Juventus have tried everything to win Champions League over the past few years. They signed their regular nightmare Cristiano Ronaldo last year. But the Champions League's pet boy was not enough to take them to glory. Juventus grabbed the services of Aaron Ramsey, Rabiot and their former captain Buffon on free transfers.
Their biggest signing this summer has to be Matthijs de Ligt. Juventus signed him for €85.5 million. Higuain followed Sarri from Chelsea after his loan spell. Juventus has spent a total of €151.5 million on transfers this summer.
Juventus are a stronger side with the new signings. But whether this will be enough for the ' Old Lady' to win Champions League is a question of future.
#3 Barcelona - €237 million
The Spanish Champions had a weird last season. They won the La-Liga comfortably by outlasting their two Madrid rivals. Football beyond La Liga was a silent disaster to the club. They squandered their three-goal first-leg advantage to Liverpool at Anfield. They followed it by a loss to Valencia in Copa Del Rey final.
The signing of Griezman can relieve a lot of pressure from Messi. Barcelona is looking for a centre-back as a longterm leader to their team's backline. If Barcelona finds one such player, their numbers may increase further.Published 29 Jul 2019, 16:26 IST
