New Delhi: It's funny how money is the answer to so many things in the English Premier League yet it poses some of the most serious questions. Transfer amounts are fascinating, amazing to quote and almost irresistible to associate a player's quality to.
Take Mario Balotelli for example, taken off the field for a failed trick shot two months ago and red carded almost at his own choice several times but the most crucial statistic of them still weighs in his favour. 24 million pounds, that's what Manchester City paid for him and that's what keeps him on-board.
No doubt about his talent, personally I think he was 'the buy' for Manchester City one year ago. But that is where the paradox lies; Manchester City had bought him one year ago, when they did not have Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero, James Milner, Samir Nasri and probably a few others.
