I see. That makes sense.Basically you can declare all the income from selling him for this year minus any part of the players value that hasn’t been covered already so it helps FFP a lot.
Every club values it’s player by taking the fee they paid for him and dividing it by the years on the contract so for a 5 year 75 million deal they will record a 15 million loss for all 5 years of the contract. If they were to say extend him 1 season for another season they would have written off 15 million so his value would be 60 million so over 5 years he would then lose 12 million in value a year. If you sell them then you have to include anything unspent at once but you would hope that is covered by the transfer value.
Basically it’s just kicking the problem further down the road, especially as I doubt they can sell pjanic for close to what they paid for him.
I could see him as a backup/rotation option for one of the two #8/#10 hybrid roles in their 4-3-3, especially with Silva leaving.Grealish doesn't seem at all like a Guardiola player. Especially not as a Sané replacement as they're completely different players.
Do they even need a Sane replacement given they managed the whole season just fine with like five other wide players? Silva leaving at the end of the season is a bigger hole and they might get Grealish competing with Foden for that role.As you say, he wouldn't be a suitable Sane replacement - I expect they'd go for Oyarzabal.
They'll swap the players back in a year..One of the worst deals I've seen, I have no idea why Barcelona accept this. Changing Arthur who's 22-23 years old for Pjanic who's 30 and theyre pretty much on the same level with Arthur only improving and Pjanic declining soon, I mean wtf
I don't think he ever was, just no other journo focused on City so it made him look more reliable. For City transfers in last 2-3 years Castles was the best source.Sam Lee used to be great, didn't he? What changed? Used to always be getting City news right I seem to recall.
IIRC, cup-tied is no longer a thing, Haaland for example played for Dortmund in the CL after playing there with Salzburg before.Can Sanchez play in the Europa league for us if he comes back to united in August? I ask this because Fernandes played for sporting in the Europa league and was eligible to play for us in it.
I don’t think so as he would be cup tied since were in the finals. Besides that, no chance he plays for United again under Ole.Can Sanchez play in the Europa league for us if he comes back to united in August?
