  1. Real Madrid have signed Brazilian midfielder Kaka from AC Milan, the Primera Liga club said on their website (www.realmadrid.com) on Tuesday.

    The 27-year-old international has agreed to a six-year contract to become the first player to join Real since Florentino Perez returned to the presidency this month.

    Reports said the transfer fee was around 68 million euros ($94.05 million) which would make it the second biggest ever after Zinedine Zidane joined Real from Juventus for around 73 million euros in 2001.


    Credit crunch?

    How bad can things really be when footballclubs can just splash 100$ million on a football player.:)
  2. to me it just means money is cheaper than it used to be...
  3. toc


    The player stands to make $12.6M a year in salary. So right off the bat, without doing the financial maths, Real Madrid is doling out $165M for a player who is 27 years old.

    Wonder buying younger players and grooming them into stars is a better investment than buying the stars and watching them grow worn out and old.

    anyways, soccer is always 'muchos bonita'
    :D :cool: :p
  4. Ronaldo bid accepted

    Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of £80million for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

    At Cristiano's request - who has again expressed his desire to leave - and after discussion with the player's representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player.

    Keep splashing it out.

    With all these expensive players it better win the La Liga, UEFA Champions League and Spanish Cups next year.
