Madrid, Their Personal Bank And Now £136million In A Week...

Recommended Posts

In the past week, Madrid have broken the world record twice for transfer fees.

The amount they will potentially outlay is not only staggering but is almost unimaginable for two additions to a squad. I believe that they are mostly funded indirectly by the government / banks. The good times are rolling for the few!

Will they last though?

Real Madrid have always been big, big spenders. I seriously have never understood where they get it from, considering that the rest of Dago land has been an economic joke since the Aztecs' and Incas' gold was squandered in the 17th century :blink:

Anyone know?

The Business behind Real Madrid

Forking out $90 million when Spain’s economy is in the doldrums may sound like madness. But according to Simon Chadwick, director of the Centre for the International Business of Sport at Coventry University in Britain, Kaká could generate $100 million in extra annual revenue for Real Madrid through shirt sales, sponsorship, and match ticket sales. That means Pérez could recoup his investment in just one year — not a shabby investment proposition.

Also don't forget that the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona negotiate their own television rights.

The television money, both overseas and at home, is crucial to Real's surge in income in recent years.

Since 1997 Spanish clubs have sold their own rights individually.

Real Madrid signed its latest deal in 2006 - for a reported record 1.1bn euros - with Spanish film and TV company Mediapro for seven seasons of broadcast rights.

That works out at a huge 150m euros a year.

"Spanish television rights have increased significantly in the past three years, and would no doubt play an important role in these large Real Madrid transfers," says James Pickles, editor of industry journal TV Sports Markets.

HOw can Real afford Ronaldo?
