It's open world we live in... Crazy isn't it? And that's how the transfer market is turning out to be, too.

A decade ago, a million Pounds were considered crazy money, but in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo thinks his £80 million tag is justified.

Meanwhile Kaka moved to Real Madrid for £50m and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is about to move to Barcelona for £35 plus two excellent players (Alexander Hleb and Samuel Eto'o) moving to Inter, the club he will be leaving.

The transfer market has not only seen very expensive moves, but numerous players have been moving clubs more than once in a single year.

And players seem unsettled right after moving their clubs. If they are paid very well and yet eye a better contract, they would want a move away.

Because it seems a footballer can't live on a £100,000-a-week! Poor, old footballers! What can £5 million-year do?

And the player's wants and dissatisfaction for their already-sky-high wages keep on increasing.

 

So how will the transfer market of football be in 2020?

-Players will change their teams in July and January according to the best offer they get.

-There will be a draft system, where players will have total freedom. Two-year-long contracts will seem too long

-Players will retire at 30. They don't need the money, so why run for cash for a living? It's tiring, you know.

-A transfer fee of £100m will be put on average players. If you want to buy a Ronaldo, negotiations start at a quarter-of-a-billion Pounds!
