So why would this guy want to leave AM for us? Is this unrealistic?

 

He is said to be on low wages 15-20k he might really want to come here or he could use it to get better wages with Falcao gone and him being in a strong position and use us as leverage.

I'd rather have a mental job who's willing to go all out to win, than Downing, who's all too willing to pass the responsibility to anyone else on the pitch, the shushing shyster.

Yeah I doubt there'd be many who would argue £20m or so was a better outlay on Downing than it would be on this guy.

Gary lineker was saying yesterday that Saldado was to expensive as he was not one of the elite strikers and he's more proven than this lad.

 

Dickie Mint yesterday: Owners are cunts and spend no money

 

Dickie MInt today: Owners are spending too much on players

 

Smile a bit man, we are looking to improve the squad with a good young attacking Brazilian.

According to this he was their 11th best performer last season, at least going by ratings.

He got 10 goals and 7 assists though so I'm sure there is a good player in there even if I've never seen him or at least cant remember seeing him.

Soldado is also 3 years older than Costa.

In 31 appearances, playing from the wing. In all comps he scored 20 in 44 appearances.

Yep. Even then, 10 and 7 is pretty good from wide from 24 starts. 20 and 12 from 34 starts over all is pretty solid.

He looks and behaves like Gyp Rosetti. Probably fair to assume we won't win any UEFA Fair Play awards if he signs for us.

Looks a seriously good footballer though. Set up plenty for Falcao last year, too.

He scored 2 goals in the Europa League, that means he must have scored 8 goals in the domestic cups, I'm a bit suspicious of those numbers as it means 8 goals in 8 games.

So in 5+3 cup games he scored 8 goals?

 

Can someone list the opposition teams please?

He hates playing midweek and wants to play for Brendan Rogers. He loved "Beeing Liverpool" apparently.

And without sounding like a smartarse since I've not really seen him play, I question him playing on the wing or out wide as people claim.

 

Whoscored have him down as a central forward or central attacking midfielder, that also adds better up with the other players who got games for Atletico last season.

Work Permits for Footballers - what are the options? | Full Contact

 

Alternative Routes?

 

(1) Purchase and Loan

This model has been used by the likes of Arsenal when purchasing Carlos Vela and Wellington Silva. Essentially, the club is able to purchase a player and register him, making him a paid player of the club. The club then loan the player to a club in an EU country with less stringent immigration laws. Once the player is on loan, it is hoped he will develop into a national player thus satisfying the criterion of the traditional route above (or become qualified under (2) below).

(2) Dual Citizenship and Family Connections

It is always important to investigate whether a player can actually obtain EU/UK citizenship via family connections. It is amazing how many Brazilians, for example, do not realise that due to family connections they can obtain Portuguese nationality. Once they have that, they have freedom within the EU.

 

If the player’s spouse is an EU Citizen who is planning to come to the United Kingdom to work this may give the player the right to accompany them to the United Kingdom and work.

 

(3) High Net Worth Players

This is a more novel, and certainly less common model which only a few clubs are aware of. If an individual has more than £1million to ‘invest’ in the UK he can obtain entry clearance for an initial period of at least 3 years. Applicants may rely on their own money as well as money that they own jointly with their spouse or partner or even on money owned by their spouse or partner outright. Further permission to remain in the United Kingdom can be granted after the initial period and this route can ultimately lead to settlement.

When Thiago and the new Xabi's buyout clauses were met by Bayern and Real as they were hostile bids ie the clubs didn't want to sell it was reported they had to pay Vat on the buyout clauses.

 

Anyone know if that was true and will this be the case for this one.

 

In Spain the players hav to buy themselves out of the contract. If LFC outs money in Cosas bank account VAT and taxes will be added.

 

So its probably more realistic that we agree a fee with AM

Disciplinary issues aside, everything I've read about this lad seems positive and promising. He's tough and skillful - a rare combination these days. As for being worth the money, I don't think the words money and worth really relate to football anymore. We'd certainly not be paying for past performance in his case but rather on what he'd bring to the squad - a little bit more passion on the pitch and physical presence.

 

Now if do get him, and by some miracle get Bernard, too, then we'd field a team that can compete for more than just 4th place.

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
