Ronaldo signs for Juventus for £99m.

Pretty good return for a 33 year old.

Quite a clever move from Ronaldo I think. Financial aspect aside the Italian league being traditionally a bit of a slower game should help him keep scoring as he slows.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

Never argue with an I D I O T . They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

You don't give a man like Bluto a drink in those piddly little glasses. Give him the bloody bottle.

Spunking that much £ on a 33 year old doesn't make financial sense to me. Real Madrid will be laughing like fuck at that deal.

They'll make a shit load from shirt sales and merchandising.  Unless they've gave him a ridiculous amount for his image rights in his contract

Yeah, it's hard sometimes. Juve will have done their sums and won't be losing money.

Merchandise / Shirt sales and the huge marketting potential will quickly recoup the money they are spending. That and he's also not a bad kicker of a football.

I know he's a 33 year old and his value will only decrease so they have basically spunked away millions.

His resale value will decrease, but that's about all.

For some teams spending money to improve your playing squad is considered a good thing.

FIAT are apparently helping to finance the deal and their workers and furious. Its just weird that the big hitters PSG / Chelsea / Man City / Utd didn't even look a him. Tells me they don't think he's worth it. Could be a master stroke. Could be a disaster. Time will tell.

Italy have lower income tax than France, Germany and the UK. It may only be 2% lower but when you're earning 120m over 4 years its still 2.4m over his contract, 600k a year. 

 

Ronaldo had his pick of where he wanted to go, he's went where he's financially best off and can still win trophies. He could've went to China for a really big pay day and he might still do that in 2-3 years time to put another whack in the bank before he retires.

Think it's also fairly obvious Juve want to be seen as one of the big European clubs. They've won the Italian league many years in a row and want to push on. The publicity and spotlight on their club is worth it for them I guess.

In other news, who really gives a fuck.

cool

Majority don't even bother to pay their taxes.
