And I dont think tevez is anywhere near that. Papers will usually tack on all of the bonuses even if theres no way the player can get them. I bet he's got something like a 5m bonus if City qualify for the champions league, + a few million if hes top goalscorer etc etc.

Football writers dont pluck these figures out of thin air, but they definitely dont explain it properly, just write TOURE ON 200k A WEEK ITS NOT RIGHT!!! in big letters.

He's probably not over 200k but I would guess he's somewhere near 150k. That's $13m a year which still appears to be a large number.

That would be my guess. I'd actually be shocked if there was a premier league player actually taking home more than 180k a week. I wouldnt be surprised if that was made up in bonuses however.

Exactly. The only people who know his actual salary are Tevez, his agent and the club. You can make some decent guesswork from the public accounts but especially when there's high squad turnover it's very loose guesswork.

I also expect Kompany to be on far less, since he was signed under Thaksin, this was Ireland's big issue (and Sturridge) since there was reluctance to bring them up to pay parity with the new players. Obviously future club-captain Kompany is going to be closer but not in the same league pay-wise.

The only way the numbers mean anything at all is if you assume ESPN are equally inaccurate with every salary. The only sports you'll get decently accurate figures for are things like Tennis, Golf and Snooker where the prize pots are all named.

All of their Formula 1 figures are grossly inflated, those are most assuredly not base salaries they have listed.

Kimi's still getting paid by Ferrari. His contract with them was $50 million a year.

Vettel is on a low salary but massive bonuses for doing stuff.

Hamilton and Alonso's salary are probably a bit more confusing because whilst santander is conisdered most likely a promotional thing I think they actually pay their salary to be on the team.

It is a lot of guesswork this stuff.

Are figures quoted in the media pre/post tax and all that?

Why do F1 drivers get paid so much?

It's the same as most sports, except that Formula 1 is absolutely ridiculous at the top level. When Michael Schumacher was at his peak, Ferrari were spending $250m per year simply on car development. Schumacher was pulling in $80m per year (including endorsements, but he's never exactly been the font of all charisma).

They've changed the rules since then to limit the amount of testing you can do and the amount of parts you can use, simply because it was literally scaring teams out of the sport, and even the major manufacturers couldn't justify the cost of participating, let alone private teams.

But yeah, you can easily go out and hire a rookie driver (well, a F3000 or IndyCar champion, but for the purposes of this level, a rookie driver) for $500,000 a year, but if you want someone who's consistently proven at F1 level, you have to pay a certain amount, and if you want someone who's actually a world champion then the $15m-a-year contracts come up.

I mean, if the car you've just built cost $100m to develop, you probably don't want Takuma Sato driving it.

It would be quite easy for someone's pay to get out. There must be at least a few people in the club who see how much Tevez is paid and similarly you'd assume people at his bank must know.

Here's a bit of a cross-post from the EPL thread. Liverpool apparently just struck the largest kit deal in UK football history.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo...cord-books.html

quote:

Liverpool have wrapped up a 25m-a-year kit deal with Boston-based company Warrior Sports a record for English football and twice what adidas currently pay.

Nikes deal with Manchester United is worth 23.5m.

I'm sorry it's a Daily Mail link, but I don't have a Times subscription.

Like I mentioned in the other thread, I'm curious what this company's plan is. They currently make only lacrosse and hockey gear. I guess this is an interesting way to make a splash. All their clothes look pretty normal, but this is definitely branching out for them.

United's deal with Nike is worth about 25m this year, but it's hard to say for sure because it was signed 10 years ago and goes up year by year.

The new France deal is supposed to be 35m iirc, which is definitely the gold standard. I wonder if club deals tend to be more or less valuable than national teams.
