    I am guessing Real will try and buy that French player who is superb in midfield as a replacement

    You have to say they got their money's worth with Ronaldo, perhaps Bale will finally shine
    I surrender all control
    To the desire that consumes me whole
    Leads me by the hand to infinity
    Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Or Hazard. He’s quality.

      So a 33 year old centre forward cost pretty much the same as the Amex.

      Makes you realise how cheap that ground cost.

      Juve aren't stupid. They've done their sums. This must make sense to them.

      He is not a normal 33 year old. If he keeps up his level of performance for his 4 year contract then fair play. At least they know he will put every ounce of energy he has into being a success at juve, even of its just to win more individual plaudits. That's no bad thing.

      Or, the wages and fee, will not be matched by increased income, as with every football transfer in history. That is, it costs.

      But Juve hope this gives them that bit extra, to win the CL.
      Projected future earnings possible because of this deal... There's a lot more to transfers than most of us will ever know about.

      Not all transfers cost money though - Southampton bought Van Dijk for, what, £10million? Flogged him for £75m, so that's a clear profit there.

      I should imagine FIAT, who own the Jeep brand (as well as Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Lancia, Maserati, Ram and SRT) will have made a significant contribution.

      It's rare that there's a deal which seems good for both parties, but in the case of Ronaldo it's probably true.

      Juve have the one player that's likely to make the difference in winning the Champions League. Madrid have a profit on a 33 year old.

      As for Mahrez to Man City... Bought for 400,000. Sold for 60,000,000. That's some profit even for a former PFA Player of the Year.

      My Juve mate didn't have a good word to say about the diving **** when they played Real, however he has changed his tune now.

      It will be interesting to see if he is as successful in Italy in a league that it generally perceived to be harder than the Spanish league although it is the Champions League that they have bought him for.

      This. With Chelsea not in the UCL, and with the biggest club in the world having €100m to spend (at least), I can't see Hazard staying in England. Hazard has been one of the best players at the World Cup.
