Well he is a Spurs player now so I really hope he turns out to be a success!
No Mike, there are plenty of stories around that it is a bizarre transfer in as much as we only pay that figure whilst he is here and then it is curtailed. I myself can't believe there isn't some sort of penalty clause though if we sold him in a years time.
The stories suggest we may never have to pay the full amount in reality.
There is no penalty clause, it simply means if we sell him before the 5 years, whatever amount is remaining becomes due. We still have to pay the full 30 mill (if that's what it was) regardless.
Still makes it a decent deal. He'll stay at least 2 years regardless of performance good or bad, and surely even if he doesn't work out we could recoup 12-16m for him. The balance left would be 18, and therefore we'd be on the hook for 2-4m.
Great final day in here (regardless of final opinions on the business conducted) - so many highs and lows as usual. A couple of things I would love to know:
1) Who was A&C's cryptic referring to?
2) Who was the mystery player we were negotiating for that fell through, as per info from Ali Z (a player we would be happy with)?
He's already been asked more than once but he's not saying. I suspect there weren't any solutions, he was just winding everybody up.
Or he remains a possibility for a future TW.
Didnt we get Ziege from Pool?
I saw the cryptic but missed the guesses. Did anyone suggest it could be Héctor Herrera? The dahlia is native to Mexico and he's at Porto who play in blue (and white).
Thanks all for a great end to the summer transfer window. I know pics aren't usually allowed during the frenzy of TDD.
Just saw my own screenshot of this before the summer window and thought it a fitting way to end the transfer season - to look back at the objectives before and evaluate after if we achieved our aim - and I'd say they delivered didn't they?!
Or someone gave you all the answer, I rated the post as 'winner' and you all missed it.
Now it all depends on wether you want to trawl through literally thousands of posts to find out or I could say 'Blue' and 'Sissoko' to help you all out
If there's a word to describe being on the precipice of either crying, laughing or shitting oneself through pure rage, then that word is needed now.
Last summer we were all over the place in germany. Trying to do deals with son, wimmer, holtby?, wermer, and the other dm.
What have dahlias got to.do with it???!!!
It wasn't the dahlias as much as the "blue" part.
I don't get it. Can someone spell it out for those of us that aren't too swift?
The French are called les blues or something so that pointed to a French player.
And the dahlias?? WHAT ABOUT THE DAHLIAS???!!!
