The giallorossi are implementing a very extreme but efficient trading strategy. Monchi continues Sabatini’s job on the transfer market.
There’s nothing to say when numbers are there to highlight fat profits. In the past few years, Roma implemented a new trading strategy that is benefiting the coffers of the club but is also giving lifeblood to the roster.
Although some fans dispute this way of doing business, the Roma roster has improved and the club is every year more competitive. In the past season, Di Francesco led his team to the semifinals of the Champions League, a historic milestone for the club of Trigoria.
That great performance on the European stage brought approximately €100 million into the Roma coffers giving even more purchasing power to Jim Pallotta.
Roma make record profits trading smartly.
Alisson‘s recent departure to Liverpool confirms that Monchi is able to sell players for the right price. The Brazil international was purchased by the former sporting director of the giallorossi Walter Sabatini for €8 million. Just a month ago, Roma banked €62.5m (bonuses not included) and made a €54.5m profits, securing the 20th biggest transfer gains on a global level.
The club that historically made the most profits trading a player is Monaco with Kylian Mbappè (+135m). Barcelona is in the second spot of this ranking having made €133.8m by banking on Neymar Jr. who moved to PSG after that the French side paid his release clause of €222m. Liverpool is on the third step of the podium. Jurgen Klopp‘s side traded Coutinho out making profits for €112m.
