Ronaldo sold for £105 million

What's Hot
FretwiredFretwired Frets: 15749
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is set to join Juventus, the Spanish club have confirmed.

It is understood a deal worth £105m has been reached between the two clubs that will see the 33-year-old Portuguese end a nine-year stay at the Bernabeu.

He's 33 years old ... what's the logic in paying £105 million? I don't get it.

My pump-action drivel gun is smoking hot today!

    They just think their revenue will benefit enough to pay that and his wages I suppose. Plus the Italian league I think is a bit slower so as he gets a bit slower himself he'll still be OK I'm sure. Maybe

    And if there's anything good about me, I'm the only one who knows

    From the Last time I saw how much a football shirt cost, it might not need be that many!

    So some of that £105 million will get paid off through shirt sales. You then have to look at his fitness record: it's pretty remarkable. We aren't talking Andy Carroll here. If he is rested and utilised well, such as not playing in the Coppa Italia, and Juventus focus on the Champions League with him, it's a good buy. Obviously a mental amount of money but just wait to see what else happens this summer with the like of Neymar and Mbappe. 




    I make Jeremy Paxman look like Fingermouse.

    Yeah be interesting to see where the £105m Real Madrid will get for him will go

    Albeit I'm sure they don't get it all in one go, nor when they spend it will it be required in one go

    And if there's anything good about me, I'm the only one who knows

    It's "the deal" that's worth that much. Within that will be the transfer fee, his salary, various rights deals and a nice big mirror for him in the dressing room.

    It's going to be interesting to see who Real will go after to replace him. They must be gutted that they missed out on Wilshere.

    Neymar to Real Madrid is the rumour ... with all that cash I'd say its a done deal.

    I'm sure he will but Real are up with Man Utd -  a massive worldwide fan base to buy merchandise. Juve aren't quite in that league.

    I guess they know what they're doing.

    Must be shirt sales. While he was kept quiet by a Scouse teenager in the Champions League final and his team didn't qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup, Italy didn't even qualify for Russia.

    I was in Italy in the summer after they won the World Cup - all the players were on TV adverts for years after.  Even Michael Schumacher was constantly in adverts, wearing his red Ferrari outfit.  There's good TV advertising money in Italy.

    Real Madrid can buy Mezut Ozil back from Arsenal, and a mojito with the change.

    Indeed. Neymar has been exposed as a greedy, cheating wanker in every game he's played. That image doesn't sell shirts.

    A timewaster who gets to a final is better than a diver who doesn't make the 3rd/4th place playoff. 

    I also think Mbappe will prove to be the better player of the two.

    I'm sure he will prove to be the better player. Maybe. Tho the French have a habit of imploding and going off the boil. Having said that, I never rated Neymar much. Could be good in periods but always felt like his name was bigger than his talent. 


    Plus, he made Tom Daly look shit at his chosen sport..

    Exactly. It doesn't matter where you are in the world, even in remotest Asia or Africa you'll see kids with Ronaldo or Neymar Jr shirts on. 

    They're buying the worldwide rights to one of the biggest ever clothing brands and STILL people say "No footballer is worth that much, think of what our nurses do!"

    I agree I always thought Neymar was tremendously overrated. Mbappe is clearly on his way to becoming the next Ronaldo.

    Apparently the manufacturers of pot noodle were happy to sponsor Neymar. In return he had a hairdo that imitated the effect of having a pot noodle tipped over his head.

    Apparently you are spared this now - Kane is back to being “shit in an England shirt” and Spurs are doomed to 4th next season after accidentally signing Sterling

    And now there will be a huge interest in Serie A again, so basically a bit of marketing genius. The sponsors will be queuing up to hand over their cash.

    PS well done Ronaldo for having a go in another league, he really does love what he does.
