From CR7 to Paulinho: the 10 most expensive thirties in the history of world football.

How much would you pay for hiring a football player in his 30s, that is, who has passed his physical and technical peak and who will probably have little (if any) resale potential in the future?

Well know that there was a club that invested 117 million euros (R $ 748.1 million) in the arrival of a reinforcement of this age group. And, at the time of this transaction, the athlete involved in the business was not 30 or 31 years old, but 33....

But this thirtieth is obsessed with body care and has the same desire as a boy recently promoted to professionals and who has not yet achieved anything important in football. 

Cristiano Ronaldo 's departure from Real Madrid for Juventus, which closed shortly after the 2018 World Cup, is the biggest transfer ever recorded by a player who had breached the barrier of 30 years.

The previous record was from a season before, when defender Leonardo Bonucci, now a CR7 teammate at Juve and then aged 30, went to Milan for 42 million euros (R $ 268.5 million).

Currently, the Italian defender's transaction occupies the third place in the ranking of the biggest deals ever made involving thirt, tied with the return of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho to Guangzhou Evergrande.

The former Corinthians player and the national team is, in fact, the only representative of the only five-time football champion on the planet in the top 10 of these transfers. 

The list also includes two Argentines, one Portuguese, one Bosnian, one Italian, one Belgian, one Dutch, one French and one German. In addition to CR7, Paulinho and Bonucci are also behind Miralem Pjanic. 

The 30-year-old Bosnian left Juventus for Barcelona, in the last transfer window, in an exchange with Brazilian Arthur.

Its declared value in the deal was 60 million euros (R $ 383.6 million), the second highest in the history of a thirty-year-old athlete.

Of the ten biggest transfers ever made by +30 players,, nine have been made over the past 12 seasons. The only exception was the Argentine Gabriel Batistuta's trip to Rome in 2000, for 36.2 million euros (R $ 231.5 million)..

Not for nothing, this transaction remained for 17 years as the record for the biggest deal involving a thirtieth athlete ever made. The mark was only surpassed in 2017, when Bonucci went to Milan.... 

It also draws attention as Italian football is the first level that most like veterans. After all, half of the ten businesses on the list had Calcio clubs as buyers..
