And theres no way RB sends their planned golden boy to Juventus before he can even make an impact on RBL. This is a non story


They sold Haland to Dortmund from Salzburg.

Clarke'path to nt will be tough. He would have to tear MLS or go to europe if he wants a shot on the wc squad.

Interesting tidbit from Matt Doyle in his January camp article:

Neither is young Caden Clark, which surprises me at least a little bit (he was originally scheduled to go to Leipzig this month, though that fell through).

According to this, at least we have him for on year. Good thing he doesn't have an EU passport and is under 18.


LONG LIVE METRO

Whatever will we do with the transfer fee?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

So rather than acting like a normal club and looking to get the best bid we essentially just sold him to our parent club at a discount. What else can I say?
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Isn't there some sort of FIFA rule that prevents this from happening? Not saying its an effective rule, but I thought there was.

I think it's a good bet that, if we weren't going to sell him to Leipzig, he wasn't going to sign with us.

 

That being said, with Adams and Clark saving them probably tens of millions in transfer fees at this point they better fucking invest in our club and help us pull in some DPs.

As long as we get the max allocation money it doesnt matter.

The bigger issue is we sign this kid to move up the pipeline for them, but they cant outlay an extra million to finalize the transfer of a player that we were courting for 2-3 weeks.

From the perspective of RB corporate, who are ultimately funding all the teams, it really doesn't make a difference.  A penny saved is a penny earned.  If they get Clark at a discount, they have saved some amount of money that it would cost to buy a similar player and thus have it available to spend on something else.  The issue is that it will likely not be spending in New York. 

 

My biggest issue with these future transfer decisions is that that are completely removed from decisions based on the competitiveness at the team at the time the transfer takes place. The Adams deal was similarly structured and I believe that if we had been able to keep him for another year, the team would have been a serious MLS Cup threat.  Instead it fell apart because Adams was the most important player in the team.

 

If Clark breaks out this year and the team looks good, the team will immediately be be broken up like it was when Adams left. Jordan Morris has shown the value of top level American prospect who is willing to play for multiple years in building an MLS Cup winner.  With the RB policy, it seems unlikely we will ever be able to build a core of players that will be able to compete for years.  Teams that win titles do not regularly get rid of their best young talent when on the cusp of winning things.
