If that's the case why would Yanited turn down the £5m we offered (according to baconface himself) flatly then? Nah, they were confident about getting the full £6m. Which leads one to think...Would have been the same as Bostock when Jordan stupidly declined our offer of a mil, went to tribunal and got peanuts.
Fergie asked for £6m but the tribunal would have said no more than £1m imo.
I'm all for screwing the dirtiest transfer operators in memory, but I have a horrible feeling that this could haunt us.
If there is a trail that links his move to Liege with us then I worry the FA could p.unish us for not acting within the spirit of the rules in some way.
I can see it now, finish 4th and qualify for the CL then get a points deduction leaving us 7th.
