8) Transfer fees
Over the years, fans have gotten excited about the big money being paid for the best players in the world. In the past, we’ve associated the big fees with top players moving from club to club. However, in the last couple of years, the money in football has become ridiculous. In 2009, £80million could buy you Cristiano Ronaldo, yet now, look at the fees being paid for players who simply aren’t worth it compared with that price. Gonzalo Higuain moved to Juventus for £75.3million, while 30-year-old Hulk moved to China for £47million. Sadly, football is all about money now, and there isn’t much we can do about it.
