Porto announced the fee as 30 million euros, given how the fees are spread over the years 25 million quid may actually be on the low side.
i like the way you added 10 million to what we actually paid for anderson to prove your point, good work
Then there is ManYoo's wage bill which is also massive and has been vastly bigger than City's for a long time.
Chelsea's annual wage bill has soared to £172.5million - almost £40million more than the next highest payers Manchester City.
The figure for the year ending June 2010 is revealed in Chelsea's full annual accounts lodged with Companies House today and shows a significant increase on the previous year.
In 2009, the club spent £165.6million on wages but that sum included pay-offs worth £12.6million to sacked manager Luiz Felipe Scolari and his assistants. Excluding the pay-offs, the rise in wages is £19.5million and represents a 12.7% increase.
Manchester City's wage bill is £133.3million, Manchester United's £131.7million and Arsenal are fourth with £110million spent annually on salaries according to their most recent accounts.
Not bitter much are you? Man City's wage bill is running at 106% of your turnover. Best check your figures before making grandiose, self-righteous statements like that.
