The Greatest Galacticos: Real Madrid's Top 3 Mega-Transfers Of All Time

Well, it's been a pretty slow couple of weeks for club football because of the international break, so here's a list of the top 3 biggest Real Madrid mega-transfers of all time.

Methodology:

It'll be important to remember later that I said mega-transfers and not "galácticos": I don't mean the top 3 best Real Madrid players ever, or even the top 3 best galácticos ever. "Best" implies best football players; I mean "biggest transfers"—or transfers that made the biggest splash. 

When I say "splash" I mean that they set off a huge media and cultural furor; the simple arrival of the player in Madrid made everyone go into a frenzy, both journalistically and culturally. How these players went on to play has nothing to do with this list; I simply mean to analyze each transfer from a particularly cultural/mediatic point of view. 

Please disagree in the comments!
