THE TRANSFER MARKET IS HEATING UP
Florentino Perez is back! City are rich! Chelsea got Ancelotti. Is this the perfect start to a lot of transfer activity or does everyone eventually stay at their current clubs?
Maybe the picture of a non tearful Ronaldo after the Champions League final tells the story. He's won everything at Manchester United. He clearly lost the duel with Messi. Can he take his revenge wearing the Madrid shirt?
Let's remember the most expensive transfers ever:
1. Zinedine Zidane: Juventus to Real Madrid - £45.62m (2001)

4. Gianluigi Buffon: Parma to Juventus - £32.6m (2001)
5. Robinho: Real Madrid to Manchester City - £32.5m (2008)
6. Christian Vieri: Lazio to Inter - £32m (1999)
