100m for a striker who scored 11 goals.

Must be better value out there
He scored something like 22 in 30 in the league when he played as a proper striker. This season he's got 17 in 46 playing as 10/RW/False 9. He would have scored a lot more if Ronaldo wasn't there, he has to give up all free kicks and penalties (he's excellent at both) and obviously a lot of ball hogging.

£90m is a little high, but for £80ish he'd be brilliant value, especially given the alternatives.

Don't rate him that highly, but would definitely take him over Lautaro Muntari for sure.

Don't think we're really interested unfortunately, but if you don't watch him play it's worth checking out his goals, he hits the ball so early around the edge of the box, it's pretty unique.Worth watching just for the assist for Higuain at 3.20 or so aswell.

And you can see the goals he scored when he played as a proper striker were very different, a lot more inside the box, poachers goals, tight finishes.

Khedira - €6m
Costa - €5m - This is about £140k/week
Sandro - €5m

Ronaldo has really backfired on them. Imagine if we paid KDB more than Aguero, Sterling, Laporte & Silva combined? That's what they're doing.

And in return they do not get the old Ronaldo, 50 goals a season and pulling them through the CL.

They funny thing is that they thought he was the one who'd push them over the edge, but in the end they've screwed their own finances so much by signing him that they've weakened the team to the point where he can't do what they want.

It's been bad for everyone.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo signed for them, their results have been worse than before : losing the domestic cup, going out of the CL earlier.

However, they have been able to get big raise on their Jeep and Adidas sponsorships thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo. Worth it in the long run but it really cripples their ability to buy good players to surround him. With de Ligt, it seems they were right though.

Maybe, but there was also talk about him moving on last summer and it was both real and pretty close to happening by all accounts. He's talked openly about it. Spurs, United, and PSG were legitimately in for him at one point.
Yeah, it was reported PSG was trying to get him last summer and took Icardi only when Dybala decided to stay in Turin.

People shouldn't read too much into the seasons he plays with Ronaldo.

Someone said 11 goals and 11 assists? That's actually a fairly decent return for a team thats entirely in service to Ronaldo. He has dropped so deep and been their focal point in building up that he doesn't get to be a real striker.

If you want a comparison, think of Benzema, a brilliant false 9 striker (roams all across the final third), but had to play in service to Ronaldo at Madrid which hurt his numbers. Now being the main striker, he puts up great stats, which is no coincidence.

As shown above, when he plays as a true false 9 striker he is quite incredible. Now whether we need another player like him (or Felix) I don't know, but I don't see us ever being close to interested at 100m, the club just won't spend it.

70m and I think City would be interested.
