Ive already given up. Not funding this madness£600’000 per week and unlike his British counterparts he doesn’t pay 40% tax on it. I predict the first £1M per week player inside the next five years. When it happens I’m fucking football right off and starting a Morris’s dancing club
is ronaldo getting 31 mill a year?
So you are saying Ronaldo is on about €1M a week gross? If so then football is finished - it’s nothing but Hollywood today !
Cantona and the sardines story keeps coming into my head for some reasonRonaldo earns less than Messi and Neymar. It is ethically immoral but it is the law of the market. I’m sorry but it's the same reason why a house has a cost in Knightsbridge and another cost in the outskirts of Athens. In both cases they are the same surface but the market decides the price. In London there will be buyers willing to pay high sums. On the outskirts of Athens it will be different.
Wages arent based on how much someone has won though. Im not saying we should increase all our players' wages. Just that quite a few of our players would earn a shit ton more if they moved somewhere else.
Bitches is slang for girls. Get over yourself
Those figures arnt right at all. 250m is utd and city
Quite interesting to look at other clubs and how we compare to them. Everton are as close to us as we are to Chelsea. Chelsea behind Woolwich is a sign of their losing the financial power they had before, though also perhaps affected by this recent transfer ban. We must be the club who is overachieving most in the league based on both wages and (at least until N'Dombele) net spend.
Looking at individual players is also quite interesting, if the information is accurate. Rice at West Ham "only" getting £3,000 a week makes me think he might be amenable to a move. May be worth it, even if just to piss their fans off. Some of the Wolves players are on less than I would have guessed, too. Jimenez £41k, Neves £50k.
