Final Recap

Even though Real Madrid spent a huge amount of money with those 165.5M€, the club took it to another level with the most expensive sales in the history of Real Madrid. Gonzalo Higuaín almost broke Robinho's 43M€ record and then Mesut Özil finally became Real Madrid's biggest sale in the history of the club and Barclays Premier League's second most expensive transfer. The 21.5M€ Napoli paid for Albiol and Callejón are two successful moves for Real Madrid as well, since the team thought they had a replacement in Nacho and Jesé. Whether these changes are successful or not remains to be seen.

But what do you think? Is Real Madrid's roster better now after this summer?
