    Does anyone know how much the squads are worth?

      Does anyone care?

        It’s a valid question. Atletico are still rebuilding themselves and paying off after a former President I think it was mismanaged the club financially and now they’re a solid 500 million Euros in debt. The former President was arrested for something like tax fraud . I can’t exactly remember but his actions have repercussions to this day.
        If not for him Torres, Aguero, Costa, and De Gea most likely wouldn’t be playing in the Premier League.
        It’s very interesting because Atleti have no right to even challenge Real. Real have 2 teams of all world class players and everyone they buy comes at a significant cost. Isco is a squad player and they bought him for 36 million Euros. They bought James Rodriguez for playing well in a 7 game tournament for an exorbitant fee and they broke the record for Bale and he wasn’t and still isn’t in the same class as Ronaldo of 2009.
        As to the original question. I believe Gareth Bale and Ronaldo by themselves are worth more than the entire Atletico squad.

      Real Madrid’s squad is worth almost $831 million.

    So disappointed that Fernando Palermo is commentating. Really ESPN?

  3. Ivan says:

    I am just enjoying some world class football after work, in (almost) prime time.

    You can’t beat that.

    And, every time Real concedes a late goal, that’s always a bonus!
