Porto have done sensational transfer business in the last 11 years

They’ve made how much money in that time?

The Financial Fair Play guys must love Porto.

Porto today confirmed that Brazilian defender Danilo will be leaving for Real Madrid in the summer and also confirmed that they have received a tidy €31.5 million (approximately £22.9 million) for his transfer.

If ever there is a football club selected to sell ice to Eskimos then Porto would be at the top of the list because their business in the market since 2004 is simply sensational.

Granted, there are some pretty big names on the list below but €602 million (approximately £437 million) is still a crazy amount of money in anyone’s language.


The graph also serves as a timely reminder that Manchester United paid £32 million for Anderson once upon a time; what a sound investment that was.
