The Barça director Raul Sanllehi reiterated the transfer on its own had cost €57.1m, comprising €17.1m to Santos and €40m as a "compensation fee" paid to a company owned by Neymar's parents.
He also detailed other payments around the transfer such as a signing bonus of €10m and various other fees paid to the family that took the total cost to €86.2m.
German citizenship is a lot more subtle than Hynter's article suggests. You can become a dual citizen if you have family or property ties to Germany and another country. It seems like a good immigration lawyer could make that work for Zelalem.
Di Canio also relishes his connection with West Ham, whose supporters have chanted his name during their alarming slump under Sam Allardyce. "They were chanting my name four years ago when I wasn't a manager," added Di Canio in an interview on BBC's Football Focus. "Because my experience there was like they were my family. Everybody knows this [it would be special to go back there] but I don't want to say this now because it is not fair. All I can say is, one day before the end, whether they go up or down and what players they give to me, it will happen, it's obvious. That is my destiny."
Oguchi Onyewu with a goal! USA! USA!
The problem (at least from Klinsmann's and the US perspective) is that he's not a US citizen and to become one would have to renounce any other citizenship if were to become one. He's "safe" in the UK as long as he's maintains his German citizenship.
It seems Osvaldo started the process of pushing for an exit back in October when he complained about the physicality of the game in the English top tier and his hope to secure a move back to his native Argentina, stating:
“Football here is so physical. It does not have the technique and quality that is in Spain. I am already thinking about moving back to Argentina.
Um, you don't have to renounce your citizenship to become a US citizen and haven't had to for about 50 years.
Now, there will be 51 games rather than 31, and only eight of the 24 teams will be eliminated after the group stage. Even the Uefa general secretary, Gianni Infantino, has described it as "not ideal," but that is an understatement when four of the third?placed teams, from six groups of four, will still go into the first knockout round.
one player can't wield this much power and dictate transfers.
Ok maybe not exactly "dictate," but he can complain that United aren't buying so-and-so or this guy isn't good enough. They're placating a difficult, albeit talented, player and despite being unhappy enough at various times to want to leave only seems to be happy only immediately after he renegotiates his contract.
Is there any reason to believe this is not pretty common? I'd assume that star players who have been with their teams for awhile have similar input opportunities.
At the same time, that front four will score goals.
RVP returns to the lineup and Mata starts... unfortunately Giggs is playing midfield..
It's not that the current Newcastle regime is bad with signings, but they rarely work within the same window.
Cuadrado is a good player, he is not the best of the relatively unknown Colombian players.
Yeah, I think it's way too early for Spurs to be cutting bait on Capoue just because Sherwood doesn't seem to like him.
Muriel? (Probably too much of a name, so I'm guessing no.)
Any comcast subscribers having trouble watching online? I'm cookie-logged in and was watching City/Spurs with no problem; tried to switch over to the Villa/Brom match and its asking me to login, but comcast isn't listed as a provider. Eh?
