    Given he was only at Man City for two years I doubt the tribunal would have set such an astronomical fee that we'd refuse to pay it.

    This one has me confused... He had not yet signed a pro contract with City - hence we could simply of signed him up on a contract and a compensatory fee would have been decided at later date by an impartial tribunal.

    If he signed a pro-contract with another club, he would no longer be a 'City Apprentice' and City would have no say on where he played his trade going forward.

    Bearing in mind the above... how is it being reported that City "prevented" him from holding contrat talks with PL rivals?

    Surely it was the lad's choice to go to Dortmund rather than further any potential options at PL clubs - simple as that no?

    Employment law doesn't seem to apply to rich folk like Shitty & their owners, just like FFP doesn't seem to apply to PSG & their owners....

    I read earlier itk that it wasn't even an option at the time as he had no plans to leave. It all blew up after we had sold Walker I thought. We were just unlucky with the timing.

    So homesick kid goes to germany? Fuck off.
    If he wants playing time then go to asmaller team.

    Nothing to do with the fact that the fa banned agents from receiving a fee for transfers in england.

    Good luck to the lad. He played the game with some mega rich clubs, hope it works out for him.

    My question is "what exactly could City do to stop Sancho talking to us & signing a 1st pro contract?" I'm thinking he clearly had no desire to come to Spurs, as there was nothing City could have done to stop him from doing so, if he wanted to sign for us, he could have, whether City liked it or not... Unless I'm missing something??

    It seems they could have prevented him from playing competitive football for a year by refusing to cancel his scholarship deal.

    Not sure why you think that .City didn't want to go to an English club,so common sense would be go abroad for a year,then can have his pick back here.Dortmund are Essentially a selling club.Tenner says will be back in England next summer.

    He couldn't play for us till his city contract expired without their permission.

    Dortmund paid £8-10 million, probably with sell on clauses. So an English club would have to pay double that next year for Dortmund to get their money back and make a profit.

    If Sancho plays well enough to be worth £20 million next summer, Dortmund could easily decide to wait another year and watch his value rise.

    The sad thing is that the rules were brought in to protect smaller lower league clubs from rich sods like City just pinching their youngsters, it wasn't meant to work this way down.
    As for Sancho wanting come to us, I'm not sure that was his idea, he just wanted away from City so that he had a chance to play and following on from that we were a good option, maybe his best for a while but I don't know that he was ever desperate to come to us.
    To be honest in that case a move to a club like Dortmund is a bit of a no brainer and he will get the chance to play, not what we wanted but we can't say it's a bad move for him.

    Doubt he'll play enough to increase his value that much.

    You may be correct. We shall see.

    But the bottom line is that Dortmund paid £8-10 milllion, and Shitty are likely to have insisted on a hefty sell on clause, say 20%. So, even if this was a "Fryers deal", an English club would have to pay nearly £15 million for Dortmund even to make a profit, and I suspect they'd want a significant profit, hence my £20 million figure.

    like that confidence matey! (am going to interpret that you are willing to bet he will be looking forward to the home dressing room at the new WHL)
