Honestly can see him playing for another 4-5 years. With all the money from endorsements,league and cup competitions and merch sales they'll make from just having him at the club they'll probably make 10 times the amount they paid for him back in the time he's at the club.

Quoted from Les Brechin


£105m is an obscene amount of money for any player. No one, no matter how good they are, are worth that sort of fee.


£99.2m and €105m but you're right

Supprised United didn't go for him, even more, surprised he went to Juventus.

Not surprised at the transfer cost, however. Still winning Balon d'Or's at 33..... Says it all really.

Thing about him is that he's already an entirely different player to the one he was just a few years ago. Rather than running the ball from deep and trying dribble past players all the time, he's changed his game to be more of a goal-hanger (a very good one, of course), arriving in the right place at the right time but not trying to do a great deal away from the ball.

Probably a sensible decision because it means he conserves his energy and still has plenty of pace at the important moments to get to the ball. Question for me is whether Juve will be able to create enough chances for him to keep his scoring rate up, not whether he can continue to do the job for a few more years.

Quoted from golfer
1000 times what we got for Dembelle--the rich have got too much money and getting richer by the minute. Time a cap was put on wealth.  With that money we could say "Thankyou" to J.S.F. 50 times or build 3 good stadiums


Not just in football.

I didn't realise he could play centre half, or even fullback, the GOAT has to mean forward or striker only.

Going against the grain here, I think this is a great piece of business for Juve and Ronaldo.
Juve represents the guys last big pay day. That signing on fee €€€€€€€€€€

Merchandise sales alone will see his transfer almost nullified. It's a no brainer.

It's actually 100,000 times what we got for Dembele.... Is he 100, 000 times better? Insane amount of money but as other have said he looks after himself very very well and could easily play on into his late 30's!

Players are only worth what the buying club is willing to fork out. He could be the difference between winning championships and European titles and not so probably worth it to Juve. Add that onto the commercial sales and additional sponsorships he will generate and Juve will make their money back from the fee in a short space of time.

What I would be interested to know is his salary!!
