With Juventus desperately coveting a Champions League title to mark their era of dominance in Serie A, they have brought in the one man who, more than any other, appears to guarantee success in Europe in Cristiano Ronaldo.
Having pushed Juventus closer than any other side has for some time, you could forgive Napoli for showing some frustration at the news, while Roma and Inter's impressive early summer spending now appears redundant with the Bianconeri taking another few steps away from the rest of Serie A.
Questions do arise with Cristiano's arrival, though. Will Juve finally win the Champions League? Will someone now make way? How will Juventus line up?
What is certain is that the Bianconeri have plenty of options to choose from, not just in attack but all over the pitch.
Here are a few ways we could see the Old Lady line up next term.
If Higuain does remain at the Juventus Stadium, their strike force becomes all the more terrifying for everyone else, while this system is admittedly one that might have suited Cristiano Ronaldo three or four years ago before he became a more traditional No.9.
The three behind the striker could be interchangeable and fluid in this line-up, but it is more likely that the Portuguese will assume the role occupied by Higuain. In that case, Mario Mandzukic or Federico Bernardeschi could occupy the role on the left, or alternatively, Juan Cuadrado could fill in.
