Forums - Sports Discussion - Neymar the most expensive player

I can't wait for the Football bubble to pop, they can't just keep rising the prices at this rate, football player "prices" rise faster than inflation

With Chinese money flowing in to the sport now as well as the Arab money that's been around awhile now... the bubble may well be getting bigger rather than popping



I mean, the guy just kicks a ball around, what's the BIG DEAL?

To be honest that's the price of the release clause, those are always set ridiculously high to keep players from leaving before their contract ends.

For example Ronaldo has a release clause of something like 500M euro.

Expensive how?

I'm pretty sure Ronaldo and Messi cost governments more...

Governments make more on those players than they owe it. From Neymar for example the french government gets 60m of his annual 30m.

Well, I guess it's time to make more money and stop paying taxes!

Oh my god why do people who kick balls get 30 million!?!?!?! Everyone who is a nurse should be paid that much! This world is corrupted because of people like nay-mar!

Isn't Ronaldo's unpaid tax like £8m?

And this deal is apparently costing the Qatari government £450m including transfer, agents fees and wages so....

Qatar owns page? And why is it costing them so much? 



Fucking finally, he was wasting his potential in Barcelona, should never have gone there, gladly he transfered while still young and will finally lead a strong team and not be the second guy even if in a stronger team.
Neymar needed it, I'm glad for him, time to give your all.



Oh god, how can someone that just kicks a ball around make this much more in a day than a nurse does in a year? Outrageous stuff.

...no but seriously, these numbers are always depressing to look at. It's like, if I had 0.1% of that, I could live an easy and comfortable life for like, at least a decade, at most a lifetime (if the money was managed well). Instead, well, here I am.

200% tax? Damn commies!

Math again. 30m is his net income. Now calculate again.

The phrasing "of his 30 mln" does somewhat imply that it is substracted from the 30mln, though...



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.
