Ronaldo Sets the Futbol Transfer Record

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=654097&sec=transfers&&cc=5901

Real Madrid must pay $131 Million to Manchester United for the rights to Christiano Ronaldo's contract. Meaning Real still has to pay Ronaldo a large sum for his personal contract. The 131 million was ONLY for Real to be able to have the authority to speak to Ronaldo's agent and negotiate a contract. A futbol agent overseas can earn more than the average 5% , like most get in America sports. I also read that the player gets a percentage of the transfer fee as well. Meaning even more money for Ronaldo.
