Is a footballer worth this kind of money click here

I think we've been down this road before on this forum but *no-one* is worth that amount of money let alone a footballer. I don't intend to comment further.

Its been discussed before about the amounts of money paid for footballers.

I don't think anyone is worth this regardless of how good they are at anything.

Nobody's worth £100m, almost nobody.

  Totally-braindead 23:32 09 Apr 2008

Almost?

If a club are willing to pay Man Utd £100million then yes he is worth £100million.

In view of the remarkable revenue Premiership clubs can generate through success on the field, splashing out large transfer sums on footballers are necessary, despite what many think.

Remember, it's the players that deliver success on the pitch and the greater the number of top class footballers a club employs, the more likely it is to be successful.

I should imagine that this season alone Ronaldo has has played a leading role in bringing United at least half of the sum mentioned in gate receipts and Champions League prize money; that's without taking into account his own worth if he was transferred.

If you examine the annual financial report of a Premiership club such as Manchester United, you'll discover that approximately 60 per cent of all expenditure is on players' wages.

If there were 100 with his talent in this country, you would only have to pay £10 million for a Ronaldo...

If any footballer is worth 100 million, its Ronaldo.

  Si_L 06:30 10 Apr 2008

I can think of no more than 4 or 5 players anywhere near his standard. Kaka, Messi, Ronaldinho maybe...

Like I said, supply & demand sets the price of anything...
