    Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for world record fee

    Bid accepted by Manchester United for $131 mil USD. Just an absurd price to pay for him and Kaka combined this past week-$228m. Madrid did something similar a few years back when they bought Ronaldo, Zidane, Beckham and others. Cristiano Ronaldo is not officially a player as he can decline the offer I believe but wow this is the Yankees of Europe.

    That's a lot of money. The guy selling Newcastle is wanting something like 100 mil. for the whole team.

    When would the transfer take place? After the PL season?

    Did they get regulated? What happened?

    Also, it's kinda funny that we pay so much for baseball players if that is the biggest salary ever.

    Well, if I understand correctly... that is just basically to buy Ronaldo from ManU. They are still going to have to pay him a salary on top of it all.

    The transfer fee is the amount they pay for the rights to sign a player, they will still have to pay a seperate amount for his salary, and assumingly it has already been agreed to. Maybe now Arsenal has a shot, not sad to see him leave ManUre.

    Re: Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for world record fee

    Do most of the European leagues not run in the summer? It looks like La Liga is done as well.

    I'm learning sloooowly.

    Pretty much this is the same situation when the Cubs signed Fukodome. They had to pay the JP club a fee in addition to signing him to a contract.
