Has terrific strength and power combined with quick feet and plenty of flair. Looks a bargain at £30m. I would say they have been tracking this lad for a while.woah this lad is absolute mustard, knew Tony probably had an eye on him as he scored a hat trick against USG earlier this season. Will be very impressed if we get this done. worth every penny
There's no point offering more as the selling team have no say in accepting an offer once it matches the release clause.I dont know how it works with a buyout clause but surely if there's a number of clubs willing to meet it, there's nothing stopping another club coming in and offering more.
Correct - to be activated but out clauses have to be paid in full up frontFor those asking I believe the 30M would have to be paid instantly to trigger the clause. There’s nothing to stop a buying club saying we’d rather not do that but we’ll give you 15M now and 17M over the next 24 months if it suits the buyer better. Perhaps because they’re getting money incoming from instalments themselves over next 24 months from sales of a CB/RB, a DM, a LWB and a grouchy forward player. If the selling club agree that extra long term money is beneficial to them then fine it’s a sale, whether officially for the clause or not. Maybe a club are happy to have some extra money long term from club B, than the clause meeting offer from club A. Can’t reject A but can additionally accept B and leave it to the player. Other clubs may prefer less but all upfront and can reject or negotiate with B, but have no option to reject A as it meets the clause. Every business is different.
On the player, seems about right price. Not insane money compared to most Prem clubs but young, semi-proven and thus better for us right now than our typical 4M signings. Maybe in 18 months when we sell this guy to Spurs, Buonotte (spelling) will have cemented his place like Mitoma did compared to this ready now Trossard type signing.
Welcome to the brave New world where a player chooses Brighton over Stains!The Sun claiming Southampton have triggered the release clause as well https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/21218734/southampton-transfer-braga-vitinha/
If Caicedo is still an Albion player tomorrow and we add one or both of Matvinenko/Vitinha or any other of the rumours being mooted, you'd have to say we are stronger overall and it's been a good window.Don’t think so - I just want the next 16 hours to pass and RDZ to be happy at the end of it
But the player could still decide he doesn’t want to go to the club that triggers the release clause….There's no point offering more as the selling team have no say in accepting an offer once it matches the release clause.
Only reason to bid more is if you don't want to do it all up front and pay in installments instead like Chelsea are trying with Enzo Fernandez.
