I've heard people claiming that the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80 million with an annual salary of around £12 million is obscene and they're quite right it is outrageous. It shows clearly that footballers are an exploited and underpaid lot.
The rationale behind a transfer fee is that one club pays another a sum that they both agree reflects the value of a player to them. Yet the implication of a transfer fee is that the value of the player is vastly greater than the remuneration he receives and therefore is being exploited by unscrupulous employers.
