Barcelona's bargain basement sale of David Villa to Atletico Madrid has highlighted the recent abysmal business the Spanish champs have done in the transfer market. Villa moved to Atletico for €5.1 million, having arrived from Valencia for €40 million three seasons ago.
In all, Barca have lost over €170 million from eight recent transfers, though Villa's is not the worst.
Barca worst transfers (difference between buying and selling price):
1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (-63 million)
2. David Villa (-34.9 million)
3. Henrique (-16.5 million)
4. Hleb (-15 million)
5. Keirrison (-14 million)
6. Caceres (-13 million)
7. Chigrinsky (-10 million)
8. Maxi Lopez (-4 million)
Total: €170.4 million lost
