$225 M in 4 Days
On a rainy spring afternoon, as we skipped the history class in the primary school, my pals from neighborhood gathered for a new clash with the uptown boys. All we needed was 4 rocks and a ball. It was a tournament consists of two same teams playing nearly every evening. The winner gets them all, and the prize was pride. All day long at school you can gibe constantly how you beat them yesterday.
But not all games could have ended. Most likely our mothers shouting our names crazily from the balcony of a high rise apartment and threatening us by “I tell your dad as soon as he arrives in the evening” ends the game abruptly. Sometimes we fight whether the challenge was penalty or not. Thus the guy who owns the ball was the king. His judges were unarguably exact; he gets what he wants same as Florentino Perez.
In the last four days Florentino Perez spent $ 225 M. He stated, this is what we called investment. It is true that I paid $130m to C.R.7., but the sales of shirts, advertisement income and broadcasting license will repay it back together with Kaka.
But during the presidency of Perez on the era of Los Galacticos, when they transferred Zinedine Zidane, they won neither La Liga nor Champions League title. So the expensive transfers of Perez smells like as a marketing gift to Real’s fans, sponsors and the local media since he did not mention winning any trophy.
According to Deloitte Report, 2 of the 3 richest club in the world is in Spain, Real Madrid (356m euro) and Barcelona (308m euro) The latest success of Barcelona, who won the 3 titles, La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League and the latest star transfers from Real Madrid will definitely bring interest on to El Classico this year.
