It’s a brilliant deal, dude. Porto takes all the risk for a potential marginal profit. It’s a loan with extra steps (us getting cash now).
(if the reports are correct)
Porto are absolutely crazy to agree to that if true. Literally no scenario where they end up getting a good deal there.According to MD
-Passed medical @ Porto
-15 million buyback clause
Good deal IMO at face value.
They virtually can’t sell for more than his buy-back clause. It’s a shit deal for them. He’s a bust and they burned 11m. He’s great and we come knocking.
We might not trigger it, even if he does well enough, either due to monetary constraint or he doesn't have a place in the midfield sporting-wise.
Nobody says the selling club can't sell a player with a buy-back clause to another club if the "parent club" doesn't trigger it, right? Or am I totally wrong here?
Unless we buy him back only to sell him again for a higher fee like what happened with Marmol?
What do you think a fair value for Nico?
I think 10M is about it tbh, 21 years old midfielder who was a rotation guy (mostly starting though) in Valancia, I don't think his price was really that high.
He isn't a physical specimen with massive potential like Moriba was (and he was also 18) to sell the "potential " for other clubs.
