All about Earnings of Celebs and Football Players

When it comes to taxes, a lot of people are interested in celebrities and people who make a lot of money in particular.

This is because most people are used to paying the taxes they’re used to paying but when you look at a person’s tax return, you can almost determine how much they’re making. This is usually a subject brought up when people are simply overpaid or stealing money so why all of a sudden is everyone so interested in Wayne Rooney’s tax returns. This is coming after people found out that Cameron’s tax return is around 38 percent but a lot of people are wondering, what is Wayne’s?

When we look at the earnings and wages for the football players and the Premier League in general, it’s estimated that the Premier League has a wage bill of 2 billion pounds annually. That’s an astounding amount of money and we can see why some people might be either upset or a bit concerned. Even more surprising is the fact that the highest paid players are actually foreign and not domestic. When a survey was done in 2013 to 2014, it was discovered that most players earned an average of 2.3 million pounds. Read more »

Owen Hargreaves says that it is wrong to blame only Louis Van Gaal

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves says that it is wrong to blame only Louis Van Gaal for the troubles that the club has been facing the 2015-16 season.

This is because he believes that the seeds of mediocrity were sown as early as during the David Moyes era. The club reduced the spending in the transfer window during the final years of Sir Alex Ferguson. This mentality continued even when the team appointed Moyes. Ferguson’s brilliance was a major factor in United winning the league title in 2013, but they were woefully exposed under Moyes.

The club has been unable to recover since then. However, many are left surprised with United still struggling to come anywhere near contention for a trophy. This is due to the £ 300 million splashed out on new players by manager Van Gaal. Due to his reputation, the club did not think twice about spending money on new players like Di Maria. Hargreaves reckons that the investment should have come much earlier and the board should not have allowed the squad to disintegrate. The former City and United player claims that the club has lost direction in the last few years. Read more »

Geoffrey Kondogbia claims that he turned down the opportunity

Inter Milan’s major signing in the summer, Geoffrey Kondogbia, claims that he turned down the opportunity to move to the Premier league or to AC Milan in order to join Roberto Mancini’s team.

Kondogbia has signed for a mammoth transfer fee and it is a surprise that Inter have managed to sign him amidst interest from a number of other parties. One of the major factors appears to have been former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, who had reportedly advisedKondogbia to join Inter Milan. Further, there was interest from rivals AC Milan – according to the player himself – but that was turned down even with a larger contract offer.

Both Milan clubs have struggled immensely in the last couple of years, but Inter’s situation is seen as being slightly better than that of AC Milan. Roberto Mancini failed to get the club even into the top six of the table despite massive investment in the January transfer window. He will hope to avoid the mistake of the same nature in the upcoming season. Failure to reach any form of European football would be catastrophic for the prestige of the club. Inter, however, will see the lack of Europa league football as a blessing in disguise. Read more »

In these past few weeks, there have been offers being launched for the young Frenchman in the region of €50 million and it has even increased further than that as managers want to secure the services of Pogba into their respective squads.
