Cristiano Ronaldo sparks interest in Manchester City’s fan token
Due to the hype surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s intention to move to Manchester City football club, the latter’s fan token is setting new all-time highs.
Planning transfer of the legendary footballer
Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is planning a transfer to Manchester City, but a stumbling block in the deal is Manchester’s disagreement on the transfer fee. The club doesn’t intend to pay €25 million (~£21 million) demanded by Juventus.
According to Nairametrics, even though there are some difficulties during the negotiations, the legendary footballer is still interested in signing a contract with Manchester City. Against this backdrop, the football club’s fan token has reached an all-time high price of $27.65. The asset has gained more than 20% in one week.
Manchester City’s fan tokens have stirred up the entire sports industry. Europe’s leading football clubs are actively embracing blockchain technology, helped by Chiliz (CHZ), a blockchain platform for issuing sports fan tokens. The company is already working with UFC and football clubs such as Barcelona, Manchester City, AC Milan and others.
Thus, the rise of Manchester City’s token has prompted other well-known clubs to launch their own fan tokens. The trend is leading to further digitalisation of clubs’ assets, which could be a new trend in the sports industry.
