Player Valuation: £70m
Bewildering? You know Emerson was dual registered until June right? We would have had to pay both Barca and Betis for him
Not really transfer window only opened in June and international transfers only this month so we'd only to pay barca.
Last season we would have, before the 2nd June we would have, then Barca bought his outright contract for €9m. I doubt they will sell on just yet. That’s a bit of over complication when we can just go direct to a Norwich for Aarons or PSV for Dumfries
Theyre skint they'd sell anyone this year. Would prefer Emerson hes a Cafu, Dani Alves type pace and power, would be cheaper than Aarons who i like too, both better defensively than Dumfries.
But to be clear, barça paid 6M€ for the first 50% of Emerson, then 9M€ this summer. 15M€ total. If they want to sell him this summer, 50% of the total fee goes to Betis. So just to break even in real terms they would want 30M€ to sell him. From an accounting perspective, its a bit lower... but still.
That 50% to Betis goes down to 20% in January, so it makes no sense for either the buying club or Barcelona to sell this summer.
Still thats less than £26m... If we had money any were considering £35m for Aarons id rather have Emerson. Either 1 gets rb sorted for the next 10 years.
The deal was supposed to be either:
A: Barca pay €9mil to fully own him
B: Barca dont pay and he belongs to Betis
C: Both clubs agree to sell and split 50/50.
Now hes owned by Barca, Betis take 20% of any profit over the total sale price.
@NeilA1878 not sure where you got 50/50 after Barca paid Betis?
