A crazy month for high-profile moves. 2 of the top 3 or so most famous athletes in the world changing teams.

I guess a true Lebron equivalent would be if he left to go to Manchester United, but still, huge huge news.

Think it's a good move for him, that Juventus team is now head and shoulders above any rival in Serie A.

The pace of the game is much slower there, he'll still be killing it in 3 or 4 years time there.

Mad to think he left Madrid having score more goals than games played, how are they gonna replace him.

Massive... though the transfer fee was lower than I thought it'd be.

In the end Real Madrid needed to find a new way forward. Juve, in the meantime... They probably need to move Higuain to afford the transfer. But if they have some other means...

It would be Ronaldo, Higuain, and Dybala.

I was hoping for a bigger fee, too, but I think the club didn't want to drag this out. Throughout this time, I was hoping he was just creating drama for a bigger salary, but it looks like he really wanted out, and the club allowed him to go. The vast majority of Madridistas aren't angry at him, but simply sad. But it could have been a lot uglier.

Is that the guy that got kicked out of the world cup early?

Shame, wanted another swing at them in the Group stages. Won't be the same team now. More important than a direct replacement (as they at least have Bale) is a centre forward. Ronaldo has carried a lot of the load for Benzema.

But this is Perez we're talking about, so it'll probably be Neymar.
