Celtic’s Transfer “Trump Card” Turns Out To Be The Very Thing We Discussed Earlier.

Well, well, well.

It’s not often that this site hits quite so close to the mark on what Celtic’s transfer strategy is, and that’s why I’m particularly pleased when we do. This club does so many things in a low key way and so many deals emerge out of the blue that it’s difficult to predict how we’re doing things or the way things will turn out.

I said this morning that I thought we would win any race with Minnesota because we can offer a whacking great sell-on clause as part of the deal; it turns out this is exactly the card we’ve chosen to play and the press is saying the clause could be as high as 50%.

I wonder if it’s really be anywhere near that; 30% is a high sell on clause, and even that’s probably exceedingly rare.

A 50% could net them a small fortune.

If we’re really going that high, then we want this guy bad and we’re determined to get him quickly.

That’s good news, of course, as our use of the sell-on clause to bait the hook is good news.

We’ve offered £3 million.

A sell on clause even half of what’s reported, the sky’s the limit if this guy turns out to be a superstar and a marketing bonanza.

Like I said today, this could be the clincher.

The Americans have only offered £1 million or so more than we have, but this changes the game.

Even a sale at £10 million, with a 30% fee, would give them £1 million more than the Americans can put on the table … and when this guy goes it won’t be for a fee like that. They know this is good business.

It should put us over the top, and that and future fees relating to appearances and goals.

With any luck this deal should be completed soon.

    The sell on clause, 100% certainty lawwells dirty claws are on this deal.

    If this continues, if Ange is not given free range to assault the CL in his way and build a team to do it he will fold his tent.

    Lawell was brought back for one reason, to protect the divis for the largest SH and largest parasite ever to invade the register one Mr Desmond.

    The CEO let it happen, the support stood by and let it happen,the GB stand by and watch it happen,all do nothing all will reap the whirlwind. Anything but Celtic, Scotland needs *Rangers it will be forever this unless …

    Would it not save a lot of bother to offer the same as the Americans with the bigger sell-on fee. Stick an extra million on to Juranovic`s fee to even things up.

    They`re back to where they were a couple of years ago. Lawwell, maybe?
