    If he proved to be magnificent signing we could stay put next summer, monitor the likes of De ligt along our own Cuenca until Vermaelen contract expires, if he shows weakness we could be into the market for a new CB.
    Although, if it is the later and Vermaelen go back to his former self we could be in trouble
    Agree with what you said though I think it would be smart to cash on Vermaelen in summer. If he stays healthy for the rest of the season I think we could get around 8-10m for him and then replace him with someone younger and less injury prone. Probably better than keep him for another season and hope he'll stay healthy again before letting him go for free.

    I think Cuenca is still around 3 years away from the first team (if he'll even make it) and by then he could possibly replace Pique. Not taking over him as a starter obviously (though this could happen too potentially) but just be a part of CB rotation when Pique will leave/retire. I think he has a lot of ambitions in his life so don't expect him to play for too long and could see his new contract (rumoured to be until 2021) being his last one.

    Ok, at this price in the current market I can say it.s a fabulous deal. )

    Hope it will be at least half of Umtiti's quality.

    1,95m is crazy high.

    Dont disagree with what you said, and in fact I argued we should cash on Vermaelen next summer as it will be the best interest of both us and the player (who can have a 3 or 4 year deal rather than 1) but thinking how the club operates I would think that if stayed healthy this year we might keep him for another one.
    Regarding Cuenca, not his biggest fan but the club bought him with big ambitions and he is now a semi-starter in B team, if Barca B stayed in Segunda I think Cuenca will be monitored closely for first team next year depending on his development

    We need to put all release clauses at 500+ mil regardless who the player is. How come Real can do this and pay low wages while we have the opposite going on?

    1-RM clauses is tabloid bs, they don't announce it. so we don't know the figures
    2-If they actually put such clauses-very unlikely- and the players want out, he goes to court and get that buyout removed and the court will put a new realistic one.

    I didnt know that was possible. Always thought clubs/players could stick to the agreed upon clause.

    People here really overrate release clauses. If players are happy here they will stay even if their clauses would be 1€. When they want to leave, they will usually leave for a fee way below their clause, because 1. we can't sell and 2. we usually want to get rid of those players and/or their high wages so we accept whatever we can get for them.

    Since early 80's Spanish law decide that every employer should have a realistic release clause in his contract related to his salary and hence footballers is no exception, if it is up for Liga they would remove it.
    And sooner or later this will be universal, player association already asked FIFA for it in their last negotiations but accepted to remove their demand as they got a win in some other issues,but don't be surprised if they will ask for it again or we had another Bosman, although I think it will happen in few decades and not in years

    It goes both ways tbh, I like how Sociedad and Bilbao do it, they put big but affordable buyouts and ask clubs to pay it, and hence they usually sell players above their market value.
    But it hurt us with the likes of Thiago and Bartra, even with Neymar and Figo although both were expensively sold the club wanted both to stay and it hurt the club image to some extent

    I have no idea why Yerry Mina has so many haters already. But I'm loving it.

    Cannot wait till he dances everytime he scores.
