Not confirmed yet but reports suggest he will have a medical for a loan move with option to buy.

Our last loanee with an option to buy worked out so well!

Wasn’t it Monchi who offered 20 million for Mahrez telling us we must accept it as he had valued him at that figure and we couldn’t ask more lol

Fair play though, had he pulled that off he’d have made Rudkin and Wheelan’s trousering of Man United for Maguire look amateur.

So loan with obligation to buy suggests he’s our player but we are having cash flow issues?

It's a way to defer payment in terms of cooking the books with ffp, apparently PSG did same with mbappe

Yes, not to go all legal nerd on you guys but there is three ways this could work:

 

1. We’ve signed the lad permanently on completion. The “loan” is simply to ease the cash flow from us to them;

2. We’ve loaned, with an option to buy at a fix fee. There will be a time limit on when we can trigger that option before it expires - the fee is fixed;

3. We’ve agreed a loan and agreed a fee with an option same principles as 2. However; we are obligated to buy on a trigger event (a number of performances etc.).

 

Based on the reports, it looks like it’s option one.

He will be our player, doesn’t suggest we have an issue. Just that we are punting the cost down the road a year, probably because we are being cautious with what’s going on.

We don't spend enough for it to be an FFP work around, we're not in any risk there. 

 

And I wouldn't say we have "cash flow issues" but we need about 60/80 million pounds worth of reinforcements and that's more than we can ever really afford in this window.
