Winston Biscuit I would imagine a lot of those transfer fee's are never actually met though. A bit like when McCormack went to Fulham for a reported £11M and people were staggered, then much later it was revealed £5.5M of that was a bonus upon promotion to the PL and the other £5.5M had targets that had to be met meaning it may not all be paid either

Yeah but I guess if all the targets are met it indicates a succesful season/succesful transfer.
Almost feels like being punished.

genome Apparently Ronaldo wants to leave Spain after being accused of tax evasion.


Expect it will all blow over and he will see out his club career at Madrid, but if he did leave, it's difficult to see that he would end up anywhere but Juventus, Chelsea or China.

Hmm. When I posted that it was a bit of a tabloid story, but it's on the BBC and SSN websites now.

Especially considering the rumoured contract offer from China. Maybe he thinks he's worth that much. (He probably is)

That'll just mean he'll have to pay more tax

It's always sad to see them tumble through the leagues looking for a club.

I think all the transfer to China now will calm down. If the company doesn't show a profit for the year in their accounts they have to pay 100% tax on all transfer fees paid. Ronaldo's transfer fee and wages alone would mean the Chinese club wouldn't make a profit.

I can only really see him moving to United or Ac Milan

Not PSG? Guaranteed Champions league, great wages, big city, huge Portuguese fan base here too.

Salah joins Liverpool. Could reach €40M if all payments are made.

They've reached a billion pounds in transfers now. Surely time to win the league?

Good signing that - and whilst it's a club record, given some of the fees being talked of this summer, not a bad price for someone still improving and with a goal every two games from the wing.

I wonder if it's another Kevin De Bruyne type situation, where he'll flourish at a club where's he's actually given a chance.

Nah - I just said Liverpool have reached a billion pounds in the Premier League transfer market and no title to show for it.
