    That's a good point Doc, that to be honest I didn't consider, guess I was too focussed on explaining how £100m is easily spent when you own a football club :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    No problem with loan to buy deals, providing that the caveats are relating to what the actual player achieves as opposed to the club.

    All the JKA deal needed on top of what was already agreed, was something along like make 10 appearances for us, play 500 minutes or score 10 goals and would have saved all the palaver of the last few years

    Yeah sounds well strange as we were told Leipzig would refuse to deal with Leeds again. However in some respects it makes sense if you want to get more money. For example a £5m loan fee and then a guaranteed buy at a £5m premium over todays value means £15m player is sold for a total of £25m a year later. The loan helps Leeds like it did with Harrison who should have cost £8m but ended up costing £11m plus 3 loan fees?

    Don't believe it, they want revenge, we'll want to sign him and they'll up the price by £18m or stick their finger up ;)

    On another note it doesn't sound great business I was hoping we were not really after him

    Barca are willing to offer €50M + variables for Raphinha but Leeds prefer to sell to Spurs or Chelsea- both of whom offer €70M. However, the player is pushing for Leeds to accept Barca’s offer.

    Problem with Barca is that they haven't been paying their bills for previous transfers.

    Very untrustworthy club at the moment. 1 billion in debt and bankruptcy looming. If they go bust we'd be lucky to get 5% of the agreed money.

    We can't sell to them.

    **** em and Raphinha. Keep him and if he spits the dummy out then he can be suspended for two years when he should be hitting his peak.

    Express are reporting the fee from Barcelona is only £43m and we’re having our hand forced.

    That could be the amount they are paying now with the remainder over the next two instalments?

    It looks like Sunderland are going to buy Jack Clarke from Spurs. I wonder if we will get a percentage of the sell-on?

    Hi Mate. As I would normally expect you to run your posts through Bletchley Park before hitting Post Reply, I have to assume that your financial miscalculation is a deliberate ploy to get Wakey into a frenzy?

    It's not hard making a cult of yourself.
