    now 130M for Pogba
    You can easily sign more than half of starting line-up of your team and this could be very strong...

    $130M for kicking a ball??? Okay, that's an oversimplification, but wow. I had no idea salaries for top football players were that high. I read $7M/year for image rights. Not too shabby.

    Clearly I'm in the wrong line of work.

    Mino Raiola just making his money. In the last years he had such a great deals that he is even one of the next Roma's possible owners! Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - all of them are Raiola's clients!

    just imagine... but the club could easily get this amount of money back in just one year. By selling his football jerseys. One more sphere is advertising! Football became good business!

    $7M per year means a lot of jerseys to sell, lol.

    But they are really good jerseys, made of the finest microfiber with minimal bounce, suitable for use on gaming equipment, or on a bed when you just want to Messi around with a new throw. "$40 no-Rooney and a dollar Ronaldo for the crew."

    Careful, you're venturing into my area of expertise, lol. I have not doubt the clubs make some decent money from licensing royalties. Whether that amount (alone) is sufficient to cover $7M annual payment to a star player, I have no idea. I have to believe media rights and ticket sales revenues are larger revenue streams for the clubs, at least they (usually) are here in the states for professional sports teams and many college athletic programs. BTW, the University of Michigan recently signed a 15 year deal with Nike for a report $169M ($80M in apparel). Not too shabby.

    What are the sales units? Number of shirts sold? Pound Sterling or Euro? Also note it appears the figures are for the entire team, not just a particular player's shirt (hence, "Highest Seller" column). Also, the club probably doesn't get anywhere close to 100% of the shirt's sale price, probably only a royalty per shirt in most cases. Even if it does buy shirts from a manufacturer, it has to subtract out COGS and SG&A items. Ugh, I'd better stop. This is starting to look like one of my spreadsheets at work. :D

    So finally we've seen Ibrahimovic debut for Manchester United. What can i say about it? First goal in first game in just 4th minute, amazing goal!

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his style: "All i'm hearing is Pogba is too expensive, this and that, well, my jersey sales alone will pay for Pogba". The football world hadn't seen so charismatic player since Eric Cantona time.

    So , let's take a look for young players done transfers.
    Over 80M for Martial.
    Over 50M for Sterling ( one of the worst transfer in EPL)
    Over 50M for Leroy Sane (latest sign for Manchester City)
    and 120M for Pogba ( he's 23 , but i think he's still young)

    the world is going crazy.

    Sports attracts some crazy money, but then when you hear what some of the bonuses are for investment bankers and actors (scale w/% of gate), that's when you realize how truly messed up many things in society are.
