Would you want Liverpool to sell a player to a club for a cheap price with a sell on if they had a reputation for playing games to avoid sell ons?
Don't know why any club would risk it.
If they had a rep for top talents I would be more concerned about keeping lines of communication open to buy those players than worry about a sell on clause.
Like I said previously nobody cares when an oil funded club is dudded out of a sell on clause.
IMO the only time anyone would care is if an Ajax type club or any club known for producing top young talents were dudded out of a future sell on fee. Sell on clauses are lifelines for these clubs.
Point stands, that they could get away with doing it to a few of the top clubs as long as they could maintain an academy which keeps making them huge sales. That I agree with. But karma gets you eventuallyAh, so it's OK if it rips off City.
Ha ha. I thought that was the direction you were heading.

Look at their squad. Not many outside of Porro have they bought on the cheap from big clubs with sell on fees. It wouldn't hurt them if it saved them 8m, which could buy them 2-3 startersClubs would get wise to it eventually and stop selling.
I don't think they'd get involved with that for the sake of a million or two to be honest. It's chump change to them when you consider the profits they make on buying players on the cheap and selling them for a big profit.
It's just small time snide s**t.
No reason for Spurs to structure the deal just to save Sporting money. They'd want their cut of the savings.Look at their squad. Not many outside of Porro have they bought on the cheap from big clubs with sell on fees. It wouldn't hurt them if it saved them 8m, which could buy them 2-3 starters
It's a 30% sell on fee isn't it? That's not peanuts for them. That would be two whole seasons of transfer budgets.No reason for Spurs to structure the deal just to save Sporting money. They'd want their cut of the savings.
I think we sold Porro for £10m. They could sell him for £45m, pay our sell on and still make a very nice profit. Or they could stiff us on the sell on and make a few million more.
But it would be the last player they get from us on the cheap. Might even start looking at their out of contract players, see if a deal can't be done, but I'm vindictive like that.
If I was another club I'd be reluctant to deal with them knowing what they'd be prepared to do.
I guess that's a decision for them to make.
Enjoying and spurs haven't been a thing for real fans for 4 years. Apart from a brief miracle few months by Conte.So sad when a ‘fan’ get more enjoyment out of the misery of his club than the good moments but here we are. Terrace this dumpster fire.
Thought it was 20% but could be wrong.It's a 30% sell on fee isn't it? That's not peanuts for them. That would be two whole seasons of transfer budgets.
For us we defer payment. Which helps since our first few years in the stadium had covid. And we are likely without CL money for a few years
Really depends on the size of the saved payout and what it means to those two clubs financially.Thought it was 20% but could be wrong.
In the long run, if that's what Spurs and Sporting want to do that's what they'll do.
It would be a campaigners trick but there's a lot of campaigners in the football business.
Like I said, I'm the vindictive type and I'd be hoping we'd respond accordingly.
Yeah the minute their academy dries up it changes the game. But they produce great talent and also Cherry pick talents from across the league and sell for massive gains. They will make good money on Edwards and Ugarte and combined spent on the two what they could save avoiding a sell on fee hereYou can complain all you like about the actions of Portuguese clubs but their players continue to be in high demand from English clubs so they can get away with being campaigners.
Contract expires in 18 months.
Son to go as well?Contract expires in 18 months.
Glass half empty tells me he bangs in the record goals against Fulham and hands the request in on Monday. His reaction to city's 3rd goal was telling.
Half full, he plays out the season.
I'd say 80m to United looks most likely. Reckon he could he their missing link and he'd follow his idol Sherringham's footsteps. PL record means something to him so I can't see it being Bayern or Madrid
