The close of the transfer window is met with the sweet stench of desperation from football clubs in an attempt to persuade players to abandon ship and set sail in a different direction. One of the easiest ways to do so is to throw a bucket load of cash at the player, whether it is literally a bucketload or a tank parked outside the player’s house firing £50 notes his way till his resolve breaks. Footballer’s wages are met with constant opposition and ethical critiques… One thing is for sure, at the top level, it is a fruitful occupation.
On that note, we take a look at one commodity that footballer’s love to flaunt (no, not their boots!), cars. Chelsea’s very own Ashley Cole drives around in a car that costs £168,000.
