For Ed002, if time allows.
In the past year there have been a number of high profile figures prosecuted in Spain for cases of tax evasion. Is this widespread in the game and why is it happening? Is it because of the high tax level for the high earners in LaLiga and players trying to keep hold of more money. Appreciate any info you have.

Back!

{Ed002's Note - There have been numerous cases of tax evasion in Spain and in Italy resulting in prosecution. In England there have been tax avoidance schemes - typically linked to such things as image rights - that have been outlawed and clubs and players were given time to reach an agreement with the authorities and pay up - and there are no residual issues that are open any longer as far as I know. There have been others cases that have resulted in certain creative approaches also being outlawed - one PL side paying some players in oil paintings and cards, and one where a number of players were residents of Monaco.}

For 002 if I may,
Can you explain the situation with Atleti making a complaint about Barcelona over the Griezmann approach. Surely the president meeting the family is not illegal or uncommon? What is atleticos complaint?

Back!

{Ed002's Note - Atletico has presented a letter as a complaint to FIFA that proposes that negotiations are being conducted with intermediaries (family and agent) for the transfer of Griezmann. The FIFA rules state that a club cannot approach a player directly and an agent cannot approach a player directly but they are complaining against a clause which discusses "negotiations" - and they claim that these have begun without their permission. This is by the letter of the law an abuse of FIFA rules but one which all clubs would be guilty of and it is not considered an issue. What AM are not sure of is if the club (Barcelona) has approached the player directly - this would certainly be a breach of the rules and would lead FIFA to look in to the matter. At present they are looking in to illegal approaches for two other player and it looks like the clubs involved will get warnings initially as both have admitted their guilt. I suspect it will all waft by and if it eventually comes to it then there would in this instance be a warning.}

Thank you for the detailed reply Ed. If I may follow up, and I apologise if this is ignorance on my part, but why would there be any interest in negotiating the transfer with his intermediaries? Surely this would need to be done with the club itself as the intermediaries would have no say?

Agents and intermediaries are involved in all aspects of the negotiation, not least the package offered to the player - which has nothing to do with the selling club. }.

Thank you Ed, if I may once more, are the buying club able to liaise with the players intermediaries and suggest what they would offer as a financial package if a transfer has not been agreed with the club?
Have a good Christmas Ed, hope your wives spoil you.

{Ed002's Note - it is how the business works.}

I see Monchi has departed Sevilla, will he be taking up another role or taking a break, are any clubs interested in him. Thanks

Back!

{Ed002's Note - He may take a break but he will be considering his options and has already met with Roma.}
