LeBron James is ready to clear the airwell, sort of.
There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Cavs and their biggest star since news broke that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. Irving’s camp reportedly believes James leaked the request, and the relationship between the Cavs and Irving has reached the point where a trade feels almost inevitable. But James is breaking his silence to set the record straight on a few issues.
What you tend to find is when clubs buy a player for large amounts or smallthey will stagger these payments over a course of a contract, Wilson said, via BBC Sport.
Let’s assume PSG pay 200 million for Neymar and he signs a 10-year contractthey will pay 20 million per year to Barcelona. Of course, the selling club has to agree to that length of time.
You expect there to be a decent upfront payment though. When Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid from Manchester United for 80m in 2009, the English club demanded the fee was paid in full before it was allowed to happen.
Regarding Neymar, I think you’ll probably see a substantial initial paymentlet’s say 100 millionand a couple of payments afterwards to make the balance.
So, now that it’s established there is a way for both players to move, it boils down to whether or not the two players really want the switch, and if the teams they currently play for are willing to pull the trigger.
