Only surprise is that the authorities have had the balls to do something about it...

Wont change the location. FIFA would be crippled with the resulting legal issues from taking it off them now they have built the stadiums. Its pathetic that these absolute fucking bellends did this.

FIFA are registered as a Charitable organisation, no? If so, maybe they cannot be prosecuted but individuals can be

Not if Raiola has his way
While Juventus seem in pole position in the Ligt record, Mino Raiola wants to convince the player to sign at PSG. Italian agent could receive a commission of more than 45 M € thanks to the transfer. ( @abdellahboulma )

Some pics of the new one here, looks funky from the outside and... a bit dull on the inside? Maybe need to see more drawings.

Sad but inevitable - it's been in a terrible state in recent year by all accounts. The surrounding area needs regeneration too.

Crazy money for such young players but they really are the real deal.

Mbappe, Felix, De Ligt, TAA - Four players that will rise to world class status in a few years (Mbappe is arguably already there).

Anyone else?

It’s hard to say with players that young if they’ll make it but those 4 (Felix less so) have been doing it for a couple if seasons now.

Mad punt by AM as Felix has really only had one season behind him.

Have to agree it'a really a huge risk for the fee they have paid....

insane money. Only thing I would say is that when Athletico lose a striker, they tend to be amazing at replacing them. As far as I can gather since the 90's it's has gone Veiri, Hasselbaink, Torres, Aguero, Forlan, Falcao, Costa, Villa, Manzukic and Greizmann. Incredible business really as every single one of them has been a success for Athletico, now it's Felix whom I don't really know much about to be honest. They are due a flop

Not totally connected but in the same vein. The stadia built for the 1990 world cup were only paid off in the late 2000's (2007 I think).

There's never been a more costly world cup, it ended up costing about 1,250 billion Lira which converts to about ฃ500m (which you'd have to then adjust for inflation ฃ1,1bn I think).

Also some of the stadia were built by people who had never been in a football stadium before which is nuts.

IIRC only 2 new stadiums were actually built but they got a bit carried away with some of the other refurbs resulting in the costs and issues that you mention.
