Football agent Oleksiy Safonov believes that the Ukrainian’s transition to the top club was not without politics.
– After the transfer of Cristiano to the Saudi Arabian club, the market exploded, – says Safonov. – You can pay 200 million, and we can also do something. There was information that the Saudis were offering Messi 300 million, and then the guy began to play at the Shakhtar base in a far from the best league, and 100 million for him.
– Where does this number come from?
– There it is divided into two components. Transfer of 70 million and some other bonuses for 30 million They write that 25 million will go to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. I don’t want to get into it, but I think I couldn’t have done it without the politics.
