A question for the EDs or knowledgeable poster. What's the significance of United saying Pogba must make a formal transfer request? Does it trigger monetary clauses in his contract? Reduce any monies payable to him? Or his agent?
Just wonder why they would say that. I would think they would know if he wants to leave. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - It means that the 5% of the transfer fee the club would pay to the player are retained by the club.}

Does it not also help the club in that they can then say that it was the player not the club who wanted the sale. Helps prevent or reduce a backlash from fans against the club and so instead the player is seen as the evil one.

{Ed002's Note - The fans will whine regardless.}

Not all of them.

{Ed001's Note - I think he means the ones that will whine are going to whine no matter how it is presented by the club.}
