He might still do it after MLS.What happened to playing for Rosario before he retires? You’re already richer than God, your career in Europe is over, why play in MLS when you could play for your hometown team.
He's a tourism ambassador for SA already. Clearly doesn't give a **** about that angle.You also figure he’d lose some sponsorships off blacklash if he chose to go to SA.
BBC say 55m
All the press were reporting it as a release clause, which never made much sense to me as why would Brighton stick a 35m release on when they only agreed a new contract in 2022.They did this with the Gakpo deal, too.
Liverpool are very good at briefing their press early to get the base fee as the price and not the fee including add-ons.
It's kind of old school in a way.
Add-ons have only in the last 5-10 years been public and included in deal figures, but I remember a time when you wouldn't find out about an add-on until it was triggered.
Nobody used to know about sell-on percentages, European qualification bonuses or relegation release clauses but now in order to print the biggest figure, every scenario and every clause is included when reported.

BBC website has now changed it to 35m rising to 55m!
It was just the whole release clause thing that was confusing.lol, as I said in my post above - Liverpool are very good at briefing the press as to what figure they want to be the main figure talked about
