That Eric Garcia of Barcelona played tonight against Bayern Munich…..might be worth a contract?? Did not look out of place in possibly the worst Barca side ever…

Don’t agree Raiola will have an agents fee which will no doubt be Very, very high (possible towards Pogba’s) and if you don’t pay that you can’t do the deal.

Alfie will have one as well.

However as long as those are meet the factors such as wages, signing on fee etc. Project, where he wants to play will drive his decision.

Raiola will have a say but it won’t simply comes down to who gives him the most.
I hope you are right.

From a Dortmund perspective paying north of €50m (inc agents fees) for a player and accepting a €75m release clause wasn't sensible.

They were so desperate for Haaland all the rules went out the window.

Did they not pay €20-25m for him? Thats what I had read. Even so, I would agree it wasn't sensible to include a release clause, but the balance is far less extreme. If the latter figure, it still guaranteed tripple what they paid for him, as a young and not that proven player, 2 years at least, and time yo find a replacement or convince him to stay.

Thanks. Having read 'the true cost' on plenty of our transfers where some bored journalist throws every figure he can into the mix, I will discard that. His formal transfer fee reported was 20m. His release clause 75m. Daft yes, disproportionate, probably not If you add 35m onto that, sure, but that's not necessarily true.
