AS THE Serie A returns, we take a look at the biggest and most interesting deals in the Italian top flight.
It has been a fascinating summer in Italy, as the big clubs all made mega signings with the hope of finally knocking Juventus off their perch.
Here we review the deals done in Serie A...
**CRISTIANO RONALDO - REAL MADRID TO JUVENTUS
As long as you’ve spent 15 minutes on earth over the past month, you will have noticed Cristiano Ronaldo has left Real Madrid to try and take Juventus to the next level. It took 105m pounds to acquire the forward from Spain, a considerable fee for a 33-year-old, even if it is Ronaldo. Juventus will be hoping he is just the man to help them win the Champions League, a feat they haven’t achieved since 1996. They have won Serie A on seven consecutive occasions but that is no longer enough.
**GONZALO HIGUAIN - JUVENTUS TO MILAN
Due to the arrival of Ronaldo, there were always going to be casualties at Juventus. Striker Gonzalo Higuain scored 16 goals in the league last season but this time around his minutes on the pitch would be limited had he stayed in Turin. Luckily, Milan came calling, giving the Argentinian the opportunity to lead their attack - initially on loan - as they look to challenge at the top again.
**LEONARDO BONUCCI - MILAN TO JUVENTUS
**SIME VRSALJKO - ATLETICO MADRID TO INTER
**SIMONE VERDI - BOLOGNA TO NAPOLI
**STEFAN DE VRIJ - LAZIO TO INTER
**JUSTIN KLUIVERT - AJAX TO ROMA
**MATTIA PERIN - GENOA TO JUVENTUS
**RADJA NAINGGOLAN - ROMA TO INTER
