David Villa

Recommended Posts

It appears that by being 1 year older his value has decreased. There are many economic factors behind this. One could write a thesis on this. It may also be due to the strong Euro to Pound conversion rates and the aundance of Euros in la Liga

Rediclious, a World Cup, European cup, Champions League winner with a fantastic goal scoring record at the highest level for many years costs more than Holt.

What ever is McNally thinking letting Holt go this cheap...

Why are you both assuming that the OP considers this bad deal, perhaps he is saying it is a good deal?
The reality is of course that David Villa went extremely cheap, probably because he is on £100k+ a week, and the Holt fee is undisclosed and will remain so. 
Athletico aren''t going to pay a huge fee for a player who has probably shattered their wage ceiling, and for all we know we could have flogged Holt for £500k plus add-ons. In fact, wouldn''t surprise me at all if much of whatever fee we got is linked to Wigan getting promoted - easier said than done.

If Holt''s fee was £2m (fee undisclosed) I would bet that there will be add-ons dependent upon his goal tally or even upon Wigan getting back amongst the big money at the first attempt.

Discuss.[/quote]I would postulate, based on available data, a hypothesis that a player''s transfer fee is driven by his quality, experience and age.  Golly, now that would be surprising.If GH(32)>Wigan = 2,000,000andDV(31)>Barcelona = 4,400,000then can you calculateFF(?) Celtic > Chelsea = ?CB(?) Aston Villa >Man City = ?CA (?) Burnley > Norwich = ?
