Fingers crossed for Felix, if we can't land Kane.
Couldn't think of a more ideal player given the way we've played over the past 12 months. Argubably the best potential of a false 9 in the world. Reminds me of Kaka so so much. Given his age and talent, he'd be a star under Pep.
However, almost impossible to see Atletico selling for what they paid - €120million - and would probably want more. Also, Pep seems hell bent on a ready made star rather than one needing plenty of work.
I’m not sure that the original purchase price has such a direct bearing on a sale price.
It’s standard practice to take a players total cost and annualise it in the books.
So that a player costing say €120M on a 5 year contract would be valued on the books at €96M after 1 year, €72M after 2 years and so on until the book value is (obviously) at €0M after 5 years.
I think Felix will have been at AM for 2 years now so €72M + €1 would show as a €1 profit in AM’s accounts.
