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.
Again, there could be some reshuffling in this selection, with Dybala or Mandzukic accompanying Ronaldo in the front two and a number of options filling the void in the No.10 role.
It could also see a more flat midfield three with Matuidi or Rodrigo Bentencur coming into the XI.
