I take your point. Let's say our scouting is fantastic in South America specifically Brazil for example & the sole reason we don't move for them while they're at their home country is because of UK permit laws. We track a potential star who eventually makes his way to a club in Europe. And who do we end up finally making a move for? Kleberson, Anderson, Da Silva twins & lately Fred. Not Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Adriano, Roberto Carlos, Cafu, Neymar, Thiago Silva, Lucio... (We could list a lot more). And the one time when our scouts agreed on a top tier Brazilian, Ronaldinho, we blew it. @Ekeke - where is it different you asked me, well I guess our scouting department is pretty decent in Europe only. Africa has brought us Djemba-Djemba & Fortune.
