Pretty sure Adidas is making billions every year and it's not like they're paying the total sum of the contracts in one year

Nike makes more then Adidas, and to me, when Nike is saying that Adidas is paying too much, then I would prob listen to them. Adidas might be doing the right thing, but I feel like they are getting a bit desperate with these contracts.

Iñigo Martínez welcomes return of Asier Illarramendi to Real Sociedad
by Tom Conn | Posted on Monday, August 24th, 2015
Real Sociedad centre-back Iñigo Martínez admitted that he’d love to have Real Madrid defensive midfielder Asier Illarramendi back at the club, as the two sides near an agreement over the player’s transfer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Sociedad are very close to reaching an agreement with Real Madrid over the return of Illarramendi, just two years after the defensive midfielder was the most expensive transfer for a Spanish player in history.

Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay spent the entire weekend tirelessly ironing out the details of the return of the Basque star and his former teammate, Iñigo Martínez sent out a public message to Illarramendi, urging the 25-year-old to come back to Anoeta.

“You can’t doubt Illarramendi’s quality. He had a great year here and he’s the type of player that every team, including ours, would love to have. Playing with Illarra changed many things, if a team like Real Madrid paid that much for him, it’s for a reason and he gives a lot to that team. La Real could really use a player like him.”

Real Madrid spent €32.1 million for the up-and-coming Illarramendi in the summer of 2013, but the 25-year-old failed to solidify his place as Luka Modric’s pivot partner, prompting the club to bring Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich last season and play him in place of the Basque starlet.

Illarramendi again looks to be on the outs under new manager Rafa Benitez and Real Madrid is keen to balance the books with the sale of the Spaniard, after bringing back Casmiro and adding Mateo Kovacic from Inter Milan last week.

However, the decision lies with Illarramendi, who still has four years remaining on his lucrative six-year contract signed in 2013, but the player is not likely to give his approval until he hears out all available offers.

Real Sociedad have submitted an offer of anywhere between €10-15 million, the highest offer Real Madrid has received, meaning Los Blancos would lose a substantial amount from the €39.1 million (€32.1 plus €7 in taxes) invested in the player.

Aperribay is keen to finalise the negotiations before an English side, who have greater buying power that the San Sebastian-based side, steal the player away from them.

The intention of all parties involved is to finalise the transfer as soon as possible, meaning Illarramendi could be back at Anoeta as early as this weekend

Yeah, I heard about renew contract. I don't blame you. That was how NBA players used the Knicks to get better contracts few years ago. laugh.gif

 

the knicks played themselves by overpaying for mediocre players

 

a lot of marquee free agents being linked to the Lakers drove small market players to hand out blank checks to keep their talent. 

lately not so much, but agents throw out big name organizations like the lakers and yankees all the time

You'd be foolish to honestly belive that United even considered a real bid for Neymar...

Nike is letting these clubs go to Adidas because they just got the NBA contract in addition to the NFL rights they acquired a few years ago. They seem to be more preoccupied with the American sports market than holding onto Arsenal, Man U, Juve, etc. Adidas, on the other hand, knows it will never have the clout that Nike has here in the U.S. so when Nike shows relative indifference to extending with some of these clubs, Adidas pounces all over them. Adidas is smart because it is sticking to what it does best, soccer. And when you ask, do people really buy new $100 jerseys every year? The answer is yes they do. If not, these brands would not spend money designing and releasing new kits every year.

i found this interesting.  looks like vermalean  is going to learn  distribution from the back really quickly.   look at all the touches.

these are the passes completed in yesterdays match.  its crazy how bilbao basically set up camp on messi and alves's side of the field. 

can't wait till neymar rejects the man u bid and gets back to work. he is going to punish teams that try this same tactic.

I think the tabloids or specific writers are out to get United, they have to be, because what's happenng with all these rumors is getting seriously mean.

Why are they doing this to the fans? How are they allowed to write things like "Neymar & United" in the same sentence? laugh.gif

This is just getting super, super MEAN. laugh.gif

Oh yea, the agents are definitely dipping in the cookie jar as well.

In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Neymar's dumb *** dad looked at everything that's happened this summer with all these other players and decided to be the one source leaking this crap. He would be that dumb.

United are definitely getting played tho and it's getting way to obvious now.

That's the bulk of the problem right there.

Being a football journalist is so easy now.

1. Create headline stating United have bid for world class player "x"
2. Attach a random fee (this can be made easier by just finding out what the players outrageous buy-out clause is, and make said bid close to buy-out clause)
3. Click "submit"
4. Watch ad revenue come in



Journalists don't even try anymore, which is why I don't even bother with the bulk of these rumor sources. I'm only looking at the likes of DiMarzio, Ducker, Ladyman and a few others.

Yeah that's unfortunate.. Won't be surprised if Benteke gets a goal.

 

Edit: 2-2 is my prediction, late goal by Firmino...
