Player Buy-Out Clauses Set to Rise

Player Buy-Out Clauses Set to Rise

The summer transfer window of 2017 will long be remembered as the moment transfer fees escalated to a new level.

Paris Saint-Germain paid a whopping €222 million, to Barcelona, for the Brazilian striker Neymar Jnr.

Inevitably, that huge fee has had a knock-on effect with clubs looking to improve their squads being forced to pay extortionate fees for average players.

It has also had the effect of clubs having to re-address the contract situation of stars they have on their books, with clubs recognising that players could be signed for a fee that might now be considered to be below their marketable value.

Today, the news vehicle Talksport, has picked up on something that first appeared in the news source Premium Sport.

It relates to a player that, last summer Chelsea, along with Arsenal and Manchester, were supposedly interested in, the Inter Milan striker, Mauro Icardi.

It would appear the change in status quo, with regards to the transfer market, has seen the Serie A club looking to offer the 24-year-old striker a new contract, in a deal that would see his release clause increased to £100 million, obviously trying to dissuade clubs from showing an interest in their asset.

Inter Milan could be the first of many to go down this route to safe-guard the futures of the better players in this game of ours we all love.

He is a Milan loyalist, he is also trouble like Costa . known to fight with coaches . Since Milan made him captain he has been better though .

Not to mention he was having a fling with one of his team mates girlfriends than mocked the guy about it . After Costa i think we will give anyone with an attitude a wide berth .
