The world's gone mad, no matter how good he is.

What will he have left 2, maybe 3 years?

To much. But he will probably have a good 4 years in him if not more the way he looks after himself.Has said himself wants to retire in his early 40s. Certainly do-able eg look at Scholes and Giggs.

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

The way he looks after himself (he's modeled himself on me, I believe) I don't think 33's old at all. He's still one of the best players in the world so I reckon it's money well spent.

Abdul, I reckon he's still got a yard or two on me, so money well spent.

I reckon this signing will give Juve the edge in Serie A this coming season and they'll take the title.

He's got several years left at the top level by the look of him, looks as fresh as someone just starting out.

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

Rightly or wrongly, football makes lots of money, and the bigwigs at Juventus have decided he is. If there was a limit, how much should it be? £10m? £20m? £50m? All obscene amounts to the average man in the street, but to big business they're not.
