1. Gareth Bale to Real Madrid - £86m

Bale has designated the move as a dream come true and will be ready to fire from the word go as he joins a team with the likes of Ronaldo, Ramos and Casillas to name a few.

After sensational seasons at north London, Bale would want to continue his scoring record and would not let being the most expensive player in the world become a burden.

Only time would tell if he can adapt quickly to La Liga and produce fruitful results.
