The Premier League, a machine… but throwing money
They say it is the best league in the world. The most generates, where you pay more televisions, the most commonly seen, the most competitive, the most attractive and also the richest.

Specifically, Sergio Aguero laying paid 47 million euros and Rio Ferdinand laying paid 46 They responded to expectations, the first and the second with goals with authority and rigor defense.
Leaving the room for the newcomer Di Maria who broke the bench 75 millions of euros, the rest just offered or is offering a level similar to the one he was supposed. Fernando Torres came in 2011 to the Chelsea bench was meat in many games. Even, goal eluded him in his early blues. Özil gunner started well but slowly evaporating gone, something similar to what happens to Juan Mata still definitely not just explode in the United.
Andriy Shevchenko, between injury and injury, only he reached 9 many in the Premiership despite coming as a big star. Whatsoever good numbers when compared to Andy Carroll who came to Liverpool as a future superstar and barely contributed 6 goals in three seasons. Of course they can always leave things worse as happened with Robinho in two years with Manchester City generated more controversy than good play and goals despite a promising start that quickly became wet paper.
Not much better he went to “brujita” Veron. His stud 42 million served to 7 goals, 51 parties and little weight in the Manchester United game that led him to be only two seasons at Old Trafford.
