  1. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Agree. He looks a bag of nerves.

    Think we might all be back here in January El Che.........

    You need weeks to negotiate with Sporting's President not hours. We could sell DD on the basis that a deal is done for Silva only for them to change their minds again at the last minute.
  5. Gray - considering future

    Exactly. He will get the chance he has been waiting for. Unless any Mahrez deal falls through and then he will be proper mardy.

    ....but justified.
  8. Mahrez to .......................?

    Only in so far as £50m is close to £40m. Why do journos not understand this?
  9. Tom Lawrence

    Now would be the wrong time to sell him IMHO. Sign him up on a new contract. He has improved year on year and if that continues he will be some player. If he doesn't break into the team immediately he can always be loaned out again.
  10. Mahrez to .......................?

    "hopeful of getting his big money transfer". Big money my arris - he would be taking a pay cut to go there......

    From our friends at own goal Nigeria: http://owngoalnigeria.com/2017/07/19/revealed-why-leicester-city-will-pay-15m-for-iheanacho-not-25m-as-demanded-by-man-city/ "Iheanacho’s move to the club is expected to be completed before the end of this week, and the 20 year old will link up with the rest of the Leicester City squad at their training camp in Hong Kong". Can't see him flying to Hong Kong on a day trip.......

    At the moment 26%. That is the difference between his personal earnings over £150k being taxed at 45% and the corporation tax rate of 19% which would be charged on his image rights paid to a company of which he is a shareholder together with his agent. Quite a lot for him and his agent for some simple tax planning. Possibly even more if the company holding his image rights is resident in a tax haven and not the UK.

    So the dispute between the 2 agents seems to be around image rights. Image rights are restricted by HMRC to 20% of a players total package as they are paid to a company and subject to a lower rate of tax than if they were all paid directly as a salary to the player through PAYE. So if we, for instance, are offering him £100k a week then £1m of his £5m a year salary will relate to his image rights. A 4 or 5 year contract will therefore include £4m or £5m of image rights that the agent will want their cut of. what would that be? 10 or 20%? Those amounts should not be insurmountable in terms of paying the former agents off and getting this deal done.
  14. Kapustka to Freiburg - Now Agreed

    Deal completed. One year loan per Official Site.
  15. Kelechi Iheanacho

    If he is a rising star of African football then his future image rights are going to be worth a lot of money. This is not a normal transfer delay where someone who is ITK can say when it will completed. The parties have been in dispute for at least 2 years and as First Eleven won the court case they will want a lot of compo to give up his image rights.
