4. James Rodriguez: Monaco to Real Madrid- €60m
Rodriguez could quite easily have slotted into the Real Madrid starting line up last summer when he left Porto, but he likely foresaw his future as the world’s new favourite player and waited.
Having lit up both Ligue 1 and the World Cup, he will now be looking to take him talents to Spain to help Real topple their neighbours Atletico as well as keep Barcelona behind them.
Set to form an alliance with Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, he will be hoping to add to the club’s Champions League title with a long awaited domestic league victory.
