Heinze To Buy Himself

Heinze To Buy Himself

FIFA rules allow Gabriel Heinze to buy out himself from the rest of his contract - in that case United would get much less than their valuation of the player.

As we reported, Heinze had flewn to Madrid to hold talks with Real officials about a possible move. However, the English press reckon that he might upset Manchester United by evoking a FIFA ruling that would reduce his price.

Players who have spent three years of their current contract and are out of a protected period in terms of age are able to buy themselves out of the remainder of their contract.

In the case of Heinze that would mean a £4million fee for a player we had acquired for £6.9million... The buying club would compensate him with liberal amounts of money as signing on fee.

It would hardly be a financial disaster but would leave a sour taste in the mouth if Heinze is really leaving. Hopefully, he'll not choose this way and will allow United to set his price.

I dont think Heinze will do that to us after everything SAF did for him. hopefully he wont even leave, but if he does, let it be for the correct fee.

What the ***** are FIFA at, soon we'll have players playing for a different club every week, we pay his wages whether he's injured or not, we provide the best facilities in world football for him to better himself, we chant his name and encourage him on the field, all while we dream of having the chance to play for the club of our dreams and then we allow one of our assets to risk his career playing in the world cup after being out for a whole season so excuse me if i expect a bit of loyalty, what i want to know is how much of this is his agent talking crap, if madrid want to sign him it had better be on our terms not his agents, not madrids and definitely not on FIFA's *****ed up terms next we'll have middle eastern countries like Israel and their club sides in the European Champions league or the European championship, FIFA what a charitable organisation.
