There are so many reasons a player could be unsettled in his current club, acting like success is the only reason is naive.1. I can't really comment on the de Ligt saga since I did not really follow that. I wonder why players would want Raiola as their agent if he does not act in their interest though.
2. I don't mean from Dortmund but the hypothetical situation that he did sign for United with a release clause. Why would he be in a hurry to leave there if he was doing well? Just because he has a release clause?
3. I guess this doesn't really make sense to discuss since you misunderstood me for the second point
Someone like Ronaldo won the league and CL in Man Utd, and still wanted Real Madrid. Won the CL 3 times in a row, then still chose to go to Juve. Would you put a 60M release clause in Ronaldo's contract, even if you were guaranteed success?
Neymar is another example. Huge release clause, treble win, and still decided to leave for reasons other than success. There's no guarantees, the clause just puts the club on the back foot in all scenarios, negotiation and otherwise.
