Perez admits, when we sign players we also think of selling shirts

Perez has admitted that players that join  Santiago Bernabeu are also transferred  about economic issues.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has announced that the Kings have always tried to transfer players based on sporting and economic criteria also.

Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Fabio Cannavaro, David Beckham, Kaka, James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were transferred for enormous amounts of money, but with the hope that they will bring income for the club – from the sale of shirts or other things.

Perez is close to reach the 500 game as president of Real Madrid, where Los Blancos are leader of La Liga and on the best way to defend the Champions League title.

He admitted that before finalising any transfer they alwasy think first what the club can benefit from the transfer.

“In our model is essential to understand that for each player that we sign, we should think about what revenue he brings to us?”, He said.

“In 2000, Real Madrid has suffered a lot economically, we have experienced deep crisis. The club risked losing its status as club that has an owner. But the club will continue to have its owners rather than other individuals, “he added further.
