Mbappé, Pogba, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Lloris, Christensen, Bernardeschi, Modric, Luis Suárez, Insigne, Thiago Silva, Cavani, Di María.
The list is endless. Last year it was Ramos and Messi himself. The way players act has changed in the last times. They bet on shorter contracts and start taking risks for thembequeath until the end of the same without renewing.
In this way, the transfer premium (in reality, the transfer itself) ends up in their own pockets and not those of the club. All things considered, even the clubs themselves benefit from this new practice, as they can make star signings at low cost, such as PSG with Messi or Madrid with Mbappé.
Real Madrid is, to date, the club that has taken advantage of this situation the most. It has ended up renewing its squad with high-quality footballers who have come at a reasonable price or for free, such as Courtois, Hazard (a shame their situation), Alaba or Mbappé shortly.
In this time of falling income there is nothing better than having a good name, and there is no entity, not only in Europe but in the world, that can look down on Madrid of the 13 European Cups. His shirt pulls a lot.
I think it’s only fair that footballers start thinking about themselves. Without them there is no business. And we are talking about a business that moves billions and billions of euros a year all over the planet.
To say that they charge astronomical salaries is to be an advantage … More astronomical are the benefits they generate. From my point of view, it is also advantageous to say that the representatives take excessive commissions. They are the ones who take care of the players’ contracts, in most cases, poorly trained, for obvious reasons, if they have to dedicate themselves full time to soccer from such an early age.
Not so long ago, in the early 1980s, the lien still existed. For him, the teams could refuse to transfer a footballer, who was little more or less than a prisoner of their situation. It took two strikes (Del Bosque knows a lot because he was very active) to fix it.
In that football that went from black and white to color, there were less long-lived careers, far fewer cameras and televised games, so the entrances were louder and the risk of serious injuries much greater.
Everything has changed overnight for footballers. Better, because it is to see them that we pay a ticket or a television platform.
