With PSG apparently about to spend over 200 million euros on a footballer, how much is being spent on female stars?
The current English football hero is the 31-year-old Arsenal and England player Jodie Taylor who has become the first England international to have scored a hat-trick for her country since money (crisp) bags Lineker in 1986 as she has helped put England in the semi-final of Euro 2017.
The Lionesses beat France 1-0 to reach the last four, where they will face hosts the Netherlands on Thursday as they look to become the first senior side to win a major trophy since 1966. But it is not just on the football pitch where England’s women have been excelling this year.
They are enjoying great success in the cricket and the rugby side has ground out some great victories and I would like to see them getting more recognition.
For sure they are by no means paid anything close to their male counterparts, but perhaps the media could focus a bit more attention on our sporting female stars.
Just think if PSG get Neymar from Barcelona, they will be handing over 200 million euros plus add ons which could reach a reported 450 million euros over to Barcelona while the Lionesses face the Netherlands in the semi final and quite possibly book their place in the history books.
For 200 million euros you could buy the whole team and walk away with plenty of change for pie, chips and a few pints in the stands.
