    So, if Haaland thinks he can move around much as a top striker in todays market, he's in for a surprise.
    Not if Raiola forces a release clause in his contract. See de Ligt.

    Glad he at least likes someone like Ibra not PR7 as Mbappe...

    What's the problem in having a WC centre-forward who stays for 3 season or so then moves on?

    Ronaldo only stayed a season, Romario a season and a half, Henry 3 seasons, etc.

    I don't see anything clear about that. This is like fans saying CR7 has advantage over Messi because he has done it in different leagues. It is more of a fan talking than a style of life.
    Too much for "clear"

    De Ligt has 150M release clause IIRC, that is an absurd amount for a CB.
    And Juve is a club who is always willing to sell for right price, they will have no problem with such release clause.
    Raiola was also the agent of Nedved and Hamsick, whom stayed loyal for their clubs.

    Use him for three season and sell for 300 mil. It's still good for us.

    different times, as Morten perfectly pointed out. no club is willing to put 200-300 mil in a player so that he fucks off after 3 seasons.

    from the start you put a huge release clause in his contract and for sure you sign him for 5 seasons. otherwise you just have transfer sagas every other week.

    smaller clubs might accept to be a stepping stone. barca or real surely won't do that. bringing a haland or mbappe means so much in terms of image and commercial revenue that you want stability and long term clarity. not a journeyman striker who starts complaining when he feels like he wants to go.

    Yeah, especially with Raiola as your agent.

    75m and a clause 100m more (175m) is fine.

    When he goes Raiola can find a PL club who will pay up. Or like Pogba he could be here longer than expected.

    If we get amazing 4 years with a huge profit, it won't be a big problem for me

    how did that work out for him at psg where he has no release clause and they have endless bags of cash?

    neymar went because that sum was in reach for psg. would have been impossible with a 500M-1000M clause - just look at messi.

    it's easy to say that we are content with 3 years of him, but that can only happen if he chooses us after dortmund. if he goes psg, real or city then he is pretty much out of reach for the rest of his career.

    Thats too low. Should be at least 300m.
    “If you can go and play at a full Celtic Park on Champions League night then you can play anywhere. The fans create a crazy atmosphere like nothing I have ever heard. “I do hope in the future we can draw Celtic again because even though we lost it is one of the best stadiums to play football in the world". Andres Iniesta

    As journalist Santi Ovalle wrote: "Messi's performance will not go down in history but no other player is capable of a performance like that. He has normalised genius."

    I don't get this obssession that a player needs to stay here for 5 or 10 years.

    Messi stayed here his whole career only because we helped him as a kid.

    Other foreign superstars rarely stayed for too long:
    Neymar 4 years
    Ronaldinho 4 years
    Etoo 5 years
    Rivaldo 5 years
    R9 1 year
    Romario 1,5 years
    Stoichkov 5 years
    Kluivert 6 years

    Out of our superstar attackers in the last 30 years, except Messi, only one guy lasted for longer than 5 years.

    Because it provides stability, and really good players are tough to replace so might as well try to have them take long-term tenures.

    You either go away a hero, or stay long enough to see yourself become an amigo.
