The deal between Ohtani and Dodgers was the largest ever in the world. MLBcom said that Otani’s contract exceeds the 674 million dollar contract that Lionel Messi signed with FC Barcelona in the Spanish Primera Liga from 2017 to 2021.
However, there is a secret behind this contract. Dodgers signed a contract that includes a dipper who does not pay Ohtani’s salary immediately for 10 years. 카지노사이트 순위
By postponing the annual salary payment, the Dodgers could afford to buy other players by avoiding or reducing the luxury tax. As a result, the Dodgers has more leeway to make additional reinforcements even after recruiting Ohtani.
CBS Sports, a U.S. media outlet, presented an article analyzing the details of Ohtani’s contract on the 10th. “Otani’s record-breaking contract is very complicated,” the media said. “Details have not been released yet, but he will not continue to receive $70 million in annual salary for 10 years.”
He added, “This is presumed to be Ohtani’s idea. He wanted the Dodgers to lower their luxury tax and spend money on recruiting better players. Most of his salary has been deferred.”
Japanese media also quickly reported the news. Japanese media Sponiti Annex said on the 11th, “It is Ohtani who agreed with the Dodgers with a total of 700 million dollars for 10 years, the highest amount in sports history, but it is characterized by the ‘post payment method’ used to pay the annual salary.”
Japanese internet users expressed their opinions. Many praised Ohtani’s bold decision to make for Dodgers, but many also expressed regret that he signed a contract amid the ever-changing currency value. Some internet users criticized the deal, calling it a “trick-and-trick contract” that avoided luxury tax.
“Otani is a loss. In the U.S. where inflation is going on, 10 million U.S. dollars in 50 years will be worth less than half of what it is now,” one netizen said. Another netizen said that Otani must have chosen the postpaid system in consideration of the Dodgers’ strengthening capabilities, adding that the postpaid system would be a total loss if we simply say profit or loss of the amount.
