The Premier League, a machine… but throwing money

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. They might have some reason people give for such claims. But nevertheless, Going a step further and in a somewhat more analytical sense we find that the Premier League is a league where money is often pull very easily and questionable profitability.

Just look at the ten most expensive signings in history to realize it. Angel Di Maria from Juan Sebastian Veron have been a dozen players who have exceeded 40 million investment for a more than poor. And you can say (although it entails an inevitable subjective point of view) that of the great Premier ten transfers just two congealed to the level expected of them. 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.

The 10 more expensive signings of the Premier League:

1. Angel Di Maria: of Real Madrid a Manchester United en 2014 (75 M€)

2. Fernando Torres: de Liverpool a Chelsea en 2011 (62 M€)

3. Mesut Ozil: Real Madrid to Arsenal 2013 (53 M€)

4. Sergio Aguero: Atletico Madrid to Manchester City in 2011 (47,8 M€)

5. Juan Mata: de Chelsea a Manchester United en 2014: (46,5 M€)

6. Rio Ferdinand: de Leeds United a Manchester United en 2002 (46 M€)

7. Andriy Shevchenko: AC Milan to Chelsea 2006 (45 M€)

8. Andy Carroll: de Newcastle a Liverpool en 2011 (44 M€)

9. Robinho: Real Madrid to Manchester City in 2008 (43 €)

10. Juan Sebastian Veron: Lazio to Manchester United in 2001 (42,7 M€)

We talk about the ten cite that among 25 There are more expensive signings authentic sports disasters. Soldier, Lamela accounted 30 million euros per head for Tottenham for just count for coach. Berbatov also failed to fulfill the high expectations that had the United him.

Pressure on the player, overvaluation, the fact is that signings have not been successful has been in all leagues of the world. Only instead of being an exception, England seems to have been the norm: more money, Worst result.
