How much for 100+ goals?

Arsenal Insider at related • 1 view

It occurred to me the other day that Robin van Persie must be one of the best pieces of business Arsene Wenger ever made for Arsenal, just on goals alone. When I thought about it further, I wondered where he would rank among the top strikers over the last 20 years or so, in terms of the cost of each goal scored; there can't be many strikers who score 100 goals or more for a club that come cheap.

Real Madrid's Island Resort.

No no, seriously. This is happening. Let's get the facts out of the way first...

  • It's a $1 billion holiday resort in the United Arab Emirates
  • It's set to open in 2015
  • The funding will be supported by the government of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah
  • It includes a marina, luxury hotels and villas, an amusement park, a club museum and a futuristic 10,000-seat stadium with one side open to the sea
  • The resort is expect to attract one million visitors in 2015 alone
  • There will be evil clones of all the players strewn across the island* (*not even remotely true, at least until 2019)

First of all, my mind is blown at the mere prospect of a Real Madrid resort, never mind an amusement park with rollercoasters.
