If he comes surely lucas or lamela leave?

With those two plus son , Bergwijn and Bale we would have one winger too many.

As I said before I'd sell lucas , I like that lamela can play as a 10 . But jose loves him.

Interesting times ahead.

I just don't see either club really wanting to do a one year deal. Levy will want to keep him if he's huge a success without paying an inflated fee. Madrid won't want to risk getting him back next year and still having a year of 600k wages to pay.

I suspect the extra negotiations have been about the best way around it all.

My missus just pointed out to me that I wasn't this excited on our wedding day. Absolute scenes in our house when he actually re-signs lol

Yeah but it's the whole goalposts moving thing which gets us like this. It's like getting to the half yard line on 2nd & goal and getting an offensive holding penalty moving you back 10 yards. Not the end of the world but could end poorly.
It’s your lack of understanding on how a deal works. 90% of my clients think a deal is done when the headline points are agreed with the other side.

Why do you think everyone hates lawyers? We ask a lot of uncomfortable “what if” questions and draft lengthy documents to cover situations that never ever ever happen. No doubt some bright spark has asked “what happens if this happens” and it’s a scenario no-one has thought of.

Not a dealbreaker. Just something to be discussed.

I do a similar thing for the Home Office. Lots of people want to bring in new systems and I'm the one who has to tell them, 'actually that will contravene this piece of the Data Protection Act or that part of GDPR'. The salient points of a project or deal are easy and quick to set up - you have an objective and you have a path to that objective - nice and simple. But it's about making sure you can complete that path to the objective that can be littered with issues and that's what takes time to sort out - not necessarily because there's any kind of disagreement, just people who want the same thing trying to decide the best way of resolving a question.

Look at it like that drive that Montana put together against the Bengals to win it all back in 89 - imagine John Candy is at the end of the field you're driving towards - everyone loves Candy - everyone loves Bale - we'll get there Hank, try not to fret.

When we sold the movie rightsfor one of my things to Sony the deal was agreed over three meetings. All good. It then took about three months of lawyers to hammer out the intricacies of the fine points.

I’m not panicking,
