Why is this one announced so promptly? Bennacer is not even official, I think?

'Conspiracy' theory says agent problems, but it could just as easily be cause he was given break after Africa Cup of Nations and will be announced after vacation, of course they could take pictures before he left for vacation.
In other words no one knows Big Grin

I read that Leao is also returning to his vacation. If that's true, your conspiracy theory won't hold then.

But your final theory that nobody knows can be true. Big Grin

Quote:Sporting Lisbon have announced that they are going to FIFA over the deal which has seen Rafael Leao join AC Milan from Lille.
The Portuguese forward was officially unveiled as a Rossoneri player on Thursday, signing a five-year deal for a fee believed to be worth €30million.
However, Sporting are not happy about the situation. It all stems from the chaos back in July 2018, when the club’s fans attacked players and coaches while they trained, leading to a number of players ending their contract.



Some of them, including Leao, have since gone on to be sold and Sporting maintain their stance that they have been robbed of a transfer fee.

In a statement, the Portuguese club said: “With regards to the transfer of Rafael Leao from Lille to Milan, we want to clarify that we continue to believe that the player had at the time of the facts valid reasons to resolve the contract that bound him to our club; that we will continue to fight to assert his reasons in the competent seats and that, at FIFA, he will ask Lille for compensation for the player’s economic rights, illegally stolen, and whose value was announced by the transfer occurred today; that will do everything so that those who have broken the rules will be punished, as they impose the laws of the game and the ethical principles that should be there in the relations between clubs.”

Trouble times ahead for Milan and Leao

In some of those cases Sporting actually did get money for the players who left for free. Rui Patricio for example left but later Wolves made a deal and paid Sporting. I hope we know what we are doing and not relying on Mendes or Lille assurances alone.

But Leao was legally a Lille player. A player, registered to play with Lille. The contract with Lille mist have been deposited theough all the correct channels otherwise he would have never been able to play there. We bought the player from Lille, so really, we have nothing to do with that dispute. If FIFA decides to rule for Sporting, then it will be Lille that will have to give them part of the transfer fee that they just got from us. We won't have anything to do with that.

At least that's what makes sense to me...
