I know that ns being a predomiantely north american forum doesn't watch much football (soccer) but:
Kaka and Ronaldo have signed for Real Madrid for £60m and £80m respectively ($120m and $150m). Both on about $400,000 a week. Wait till Man City get onto the market, they have the whole emirates oil backing behind them. Thus giving them about £400m ($800,) a season to spend, so the market will become even more distorted.
Bare in mind that both of them, especially so in Ronaldo's case have moved to an inferior club (results wise). Both Man Utd and AC Milan have been far more successful recently than Real, particuarly so in Uniteds case
I guess my point is: does any north american sport have that sort of money to pay for the players and the money to pay them there after? Is this shot covered in the US media? It is ruining a sport I love and much of Europe lives for. All seems ludicrous to me and just interested in anyone elses opinion.
Apologies if people are bored after reading this!
