Rumour - the first of the Brazilians ?

by Sutekh » 17 Jan 2020 08:28

Following the apparent appointment of Senor Mattos...

@TalkReading tweeted

Reading have held talks with São Paulo about signing Brazilian midfielders Felipe Araruna and Igor Liziero, the latter would cost €7 million #readingfc


Just the likely work permit restrictions to work out then.

Local reporter down there saying there haven't been transfer talks but Mattos has asked every club what players have dual EU citizenship.

Couldn't he just use the filters on his player search?

Anybody got the faintest idea about whether a EU passport will be of any benefit by the end of transition (still 31/12/20)?

Nope but I’m guessing if they sign before then it will hold some weight longer term for that player

Supposedly a structured deal with small up front fee like Puscas

Potentially financed from selling Loader/Nolan/Barrett/Mannone and any other old shit we have hanging around

Imagine we've always had it, but the accounts from 2017/18 were affecting FFP - they are off the books from this summer.

We're gonna sell Bearwood to the owners for £100m, get promoted and never come down so we're outside the FL's authority for ever.

You forgot to mention the money we'll be getting for qualifying for the Champions League - got to be factored in as well!
