    They only bought him a month ago, safe in the knowledge they would most likely be selling him, so I doubt it means what you think it means.

    Release clauses are meaningless, as whether or not they are enforced is up to the club (in the even they are selling).

    They’re not meaningless in Spain. As long as the buying club turn up at the spanish FA and hand over the correct amount in full, then the club in possession of the player has no power at all.

    The players contract with them is broken and the compensation (aka release clause) is paid, via the FA.

    Doesn't mean the player has to go though.

    Although hopefully/presumably not relevant here.

    Or possibly anywhere thinking about it.

    Could be a bit of posturing from Betis as well. We've really been the only team consistently liked with GLC, maybe they're trying to inject a little urgency into Daniel and co.

    Maybe the Eriksen signing a new contract leeks are Levy and co doing the same to Betis?

    I don't think it's the leeks. Probably the kale or frisee.

    You seem like you are more in the know with the players from foreign leagues than I from your recent posts, so I can't comment or argue re Soler or Lo Celso for that matter as I said, but my point remains re buying a 20m player for 70m.

    It's similar re Brooks as I understand you're a big fan like myself, I'd love to see him in a Spurs shirt, think he's made for it. But yet again, we're one step behind considering the fee that Bournemouth got for him and what we'd likely have to pay.

    I think it is to do with Poch wanting to sign players who have proved themselves.

    I watch football pretty much every night of the season. Soler impressed me the 5 or 6 times I saw him play.

    Well obviously yes! PSG wouldn’t have handed £200m to the Spanish FA just on the off chance Neymar might have fancied a change of scene!

    I was responding to the point made that ‘it’s up to the selling club whether or not the release clause is enforced’

    Brooks is just one of those players where you are in no doubt he's the real deal.

    If Lewis Dunk is worth 45m then Brooks is worth 150m in this market, think he's just signed a new contract too. Would love him here but he'd cost an absolute bomb now.

    That's quite a chunk going to PSG. Something wrong with those figures.

    If that sell on clause has any basis of fact to it then it’s no wonder Betis are playing hardball for as higher figure as possible.

    We need to buy two players from them then and weight the fee to the random one, like we fiddled the vorm sell on by paying almost solely for davies
