NBA/NFL/MLB star players (the top 25 players in the world) regularly take advantage of free agency to get huge salary, but star soccer players (the top 25 players in the world) do not. MLS/SUM can benefit from this. Step 1. Create a big sports agency Step 2. Sign all the big star players (the world top 25 players) Step 3. Tell them to all play out their contracts/go on a Bosman. Step 4. Watch as their salary will increase by 50% and profit as their agents. Why would the star players' salary increase from $10 mil to $15 mil? The answer is simple. The elite European clubs (Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool, Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, Juventus) won't have to pay $30-40 million in transfer fee. Generally, they have a net spending of $25-40 million each year. Let use Real Madrid as an example. This is their summer 2007 spending. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Madrid#2007.2F2008_transfers IN Pepe (€30M transfer from F.C. Porto) Arjen Robben (€36M transfer from Chelsea F.C) Royston Drenthe (€13M transfer from Feyenoord Rotterdam) Wesley Sneijder (€27M transfer from Ajax Amsterdam) Gabriel Heinze (€10M transfer from Manchester United) OUT 8 MF Emerson (€5M transfer to AC Milan) 11 DF Cicinho (€11M transfer to A.S.
