Nevermind Alisson to Liverpool, Torreira to Arsenal or Jorginho to Chelsea, the biggest transfer of the summer is undoubtedly Alex Hunter's move to Real Madrid.
In The Journey, Hunter has completed his rise to the pinnacle of world football after taking the Premier League by storm, wining the MLS Cup with the LA Galaxy before returning to Europe to lead his club to a domestic league and cup double. Hunter now joins Real Madrid in the finale of The Journey to chase Champions League glory:
It's everything I’ve ever wanted, simple as that. To join Real Madrid, the biggest club in the world, is what every kid like me dreams about. And on top of it all, I’m just buzzing to finally get my chance to play in the biggest club competition in the world, the UEFA Champions League.
The move was announced on EA Sports' FIFA Twitter account, and also marked the launch of Real's red third kit, which is made out of ocean plastic:
