This summer the transfer market has gone all topsy turvy with clubs getting more and more greedier by asking more money for selling a player which is not the correct market rate.For example Michy Batshuayi was bought for 33 million pound but he could not even get selected to play for Belgium in the Euro cup 2016.Alexandre Lacazatte who plays for Lyon ,that club is asking for 60 million pound has byout clause.He also could not get selected to play for France in the Euro Cup 2016.Paul Pogba joined Manchester United for 110 million pounds and he is not a striker and hence wont get you 60 goals per season.John Stones was sold for 47.5 milion pounds and he is a defender.This just shows how ridiculous the prices of players have shot up and if things go on like tbis soon we will see a player sold for 200 million pounds.

The Manchester United fans and the old players of the club are highly excited about the buying of Paul Pogba from Juventus.Players like Bryan Robson,Gary Neville,Philip Neville say that this was a good buy whereas Rio Ferdinand said that the deal was a bargain.Paul Pogba is a mid fielder and not a striker,he is a box to box runner and he may be a missing link in Manchester United since 2005 after the departure of Roy Keane.A player costing 110 million pounds should at least score 50 to 60 goals a season and Paul Pogba has not scored 50 goals in is entire 4 year career at Juventus.

Arsen Wenger buys only players who fit into his criteria i.e age,skill,price and resale value.For example Arsenal fans wanted him to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.But Lyon wanted 42 million for him whereas Arsen Wenger was willing to pay only 30 million pounds. Lyon then offered him a new contract with a new buy out clause of 60 million pounds.Arsen Wenger is not interested in spending so much on a player who was not even selected to play for France in the Euro Cup 2016 even though Krim Benzema was not selected to play for France

We can honestly say that Football in the world today have lost their marbles for sure. For example a football club from China has offered the Argentinean footballer the striker Gonzalo Higuain a fabulous offer to play in China. The offer was a crazy offer though. He has been offered a staggering amount as a weekly salary of 800,000 pounds as a weekly salary. And it is working out as a total of 25, twenty five million pounds , which is plain music in the ears of a footballer.
