Club: Bayern 俱乐部：巴伐利亚
Previous position: left wing

Whether the effect on the team meets expectations: Yes
The initial transfer fee for Davis to join Bayern was 9.84 million pounds. If you add performance-linked bonuses, the maximum can reach 16.66 million pounds, which set a record for the sale of major league players. Of course, Davis didn't go to the bench. But the question is that Bayern already has Gnabry, Koman, Perisic and Mueller in his position. Can Davis be accepted?
The 19-year-old player often commits crimes against opposing defenders in front of the scene and then crosses to Lewand. So his main position on the court is actually on the left near the center line.
Compared with his position in the Whitecaps, Davis’s current position is actually different in two points: 1) He must sprint back to the left back area to defend from time to time to prevent Bayern from being counterattacked; 2) Give more to the front Players on the field provide support instead of cruising to the center or even attacking on the right.
Club: Manchester City
Previous position: Defensive midfielder
Current position: Central defender
Whether the effect on the team meets expectations: No
The poor performance of Stones and Otamendi this season has forced Guardiola to pin their defense hopes on the team's midfielder Fernandinho and even Rodri-letting them serve as a central defender. In fact, in the 34 games that Fernandinho played this season, 31 times he played as a central defender.
As a result, his average clearance per game has increased from 2.61 last season to 3.20 this season, and the number of ball possessions has risen from 1.55 per game last season to 3.51 this season.
Fei Niao did his best when it was needed by Guarana, so Manchester City's defeat this season cannot be blamed on him. However, judging from the requirements of the central defender position alone, he did not play a corresponding role. He lacks the sense of position a central defender should have, and can't keep up with those fast forwards-he is 34 years old after all.
"The central defender should be played by someone. I think Fei Niao is not suitable for playing a central defender. He is better at midfield and I hope he can return to his original position as soon as possible," Manchester City defender Richards said to Sky Sports in March.
Fei Bird is a last resort to play as a central defender, and his performance is beyond reproach, but he did not bring the expected results to Manchester City. We also hope that he will not have to be frequent guest defenders.

Quadrado also transitioned from a winger position to a guard. After Cancelo joined Manchester City, his playing time at Juventus has been greatly improved this season. Quadrado has also played as a guard before, but only occasionally, before this season, he has played a total of 10 guards. In other words, he didn't come to Juventus to play right back. But like Davis, he became one of the most consistent players in Europe this season at the full-back position.
Quadrado也从边锋位置转换为后卫位置。 Cancelo加入曼城后，本赛季他在尤文图斯的比赛时间有了很大的改善。 Quadrado之前也曾担任过后卫，但在本赛季之前，他只是偶尔担任过10个后卫。换句话说，他没有来尤文图斯打球。但是像戴维斯一样，他在本赛季的后卫位置上成为欧洲最稳定的球员之一。
Quadrado and Davis also have similar playing styles. Their positions have been slightly retreated compared to last season, but they have been given a lot of offensive freedom. The team allows and even encourages them to attack forward and provide support for the frontcourt.
In Serie A this season, Quadrado can create 1.57 opportunities per game, and the number of appearances in the opponent's front court has also increased from 5.07 per game last season to 7.73 this season. His assists and goals have also reached the level of last season-2 assists and 1 goal. This is the result of Surrey’s trust, and such a position change is undoubtedly very successful.
And the 31-year-old Columbia star's previous winger experience has brought a lot of help to his defense. Quadrado has made 46 steals this season, ranking 14th in Serie A, while averaging 6.17 times per game to regain the ball.
"Quadrado is balanced offensive and defensive", Sarri told the Italian Sky TV in October last year. "The only thing he needs to improve in the right-back position is one-on-one. In a confrontation, he falls too easily, and it will be due to some Unnecessary steals take cards. But I believe that under the guidance of Balzali, he will overcome these problems."
Quadrado is not a substitute for Cancelo, but an upgraded version. He has the same offensive output as Cancelo, while defensively is more stable. This is exactly what Sarri needs, especially when Inter Milan and Lazio are chasing Juventus this season.

"His first season at Barcelona reminded me of Coutinho," Brazil and Barcelona legend Rivaldo said in March. "At the previous club, they performed very well. But after coming to Barcelona, they He can't copy his previous performance. I think he needs to contribute more to show his true strength and become a decisive member of Setien."
So far, Griezmann has not established a real connection with Messi on the court as many people hope. Although Barcelona is now at the top of the La Liga list, Real Madrid behind them have been eyeing.
Of course, we can't say from this that Griezmann played very well on the left side of Barcelona. Before playing under the disciplined Simeone, Griezmann could quickly adapt to Setien's high-pressure style. If Griezmann's improvement in status continues, then diehard Barcelona fans will accept him sooner or later.
Okay, so this change isn’t technically something new for Antoine Griezmann — the France international rose to prominence on the left flank with Real Sociedad between 2009 and 2014. However, during his five-year stay at Atletico Madrid, the 29-year-old had to learn how to become a true centre-forward in Diego Simeone’s robust 4-4-2 formation. His task there was to be the first line of defence as Atleti soaked up pressure. He showed
Of course, Griezmann departed for Barcelona last summer and in doing so, was forced back out onto the left thanks to the Blaugrana having Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at their disposal. So, how has he coped with
