This move brought an end to a memorable 21-year stay for Messi at Barcelona, with the player, who is the Blaugrana's all-time leading goalscorer, leaving a massive legacy behind at the Camp Nou.

Another former La Masia product, Takefusa Kubo – who scored against South Africa at the recent Olympic Games in Tokyo – was also on the move this week, having joined LaLiga side Mallorca on a temporary deal from Real Madrid. This is the Japanese youngster's fourth loan spell since joining Los Blancos in 2019.

In England, Lukaku, who cost a reported club-record fee of £97.5 million (R2 billion), officially rejoined Chelsea on Thursday night after leaving the London club in 2014.

The 28-year-old is said to have signed a five-year contract with the Blues, and will reportedly earn in the region of £200 000 (R4 million) a week at Stamford Bridge, which places him among the highest earners at the club.
