In the 2012-13 season, when the slogan ‘Strawberry’ went down in the history of the Galatasaray Palace, Aysal tied a total of 11 players, including world stars such as Sneijder and Drogba, to their colors, while we also revealed the expenditures made with official figures that had never seen the light of day in two different management periods.
Aslan broke records in two seasons
According to the report submitted to the management last week; In that season, 30 million Euros of testimonial and 6 million 25 thousand Euros of manager commission were paid to 11 players. All season costs of the contracts were 66 million 492 thousand Euros. In short, the total cost of the 1st Strawberry Season reached 102.5 million Euros.
Aysal management, which did not slow down in 2013-14, signed 16 transfers with a total of 108 million 716 thousand Euros this time. The cost of the operation to decorate a good staff with strawberries, which is likened to a cake, was 211.2 million Euros for Galatasaray.
4 players transferred free of charge
If this season Icardi, Mata and Mertens, along with many stars as well as promising names, cost 38.4 percent of the 211.2 million Euros spent for the 13 players transferred. Sportive Inc. As a result of the operation directed by Deputy Chairman Erden Timur with the support of Dursun Özbek, Galatasaray paid a testimonial of 26 million Euros for 9 of the 13 football players it added to its staff this season, including the rental fee. Icardi, Mata, Mertens and Rashica came free of charge.
Star group formed
The overall cost of player fees, which is the sum of all years in this season’s deals, was 49.7 million Euros. With manager payments of 3.9 million Euros, the cost increased to 81.2 million Euros. This figure comes to 2/5 of the cost of 2 strawberry eras like Drogba and Sneijder. In other words, Galatasaray made a much more economical and remarkable commercial operation this time compared to 2012-13 and 2013-14. Moreover, this time it did not settle for strawberries; formed a small group of stars.
SALARY LOAD IS LOWER OF 800 THOUSAND EURO FROM LAST SEASON
Although many star players came to Galatasaray this season, the salary budget remained below 800 thousand Euros compared to last year.
Galatasaray used 2 of the ‘3 transfer rights under the age of 21’ applied for the first time this season. Without the 7.7 million Euro investment made in Yusuf and Ross, the total testimonial expenditure would have decreased to 18 million Euros.
One of the features of this staff is that the stars who came in paid the same amount or less than last year’s salaries; None of them were given astronomical increases.
