There is some speculation that Leganes would be willing to pay a MLS record transfer fee for Kaku. Considering the financial impact of staying in La Liga, they may be willing to buck up.

Closed.

 

As good as Kaku is, he isn't single-handedly saving a team from La Liga relegation. But if they make an offer we can't refuse ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

MLS record transfer fee being 14+ million?  I mean I love Kaku, but if someone's going to offer nearly 10 million more than you bought him for...

 

The real question is do we have someone in mind to spend that money on? 


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Did Hurrican hold on a percent of the sell-on rights?

I think so.  And also, MLS holds 25% of anything above what we paid for Kaku (which was $6.25M right?)

 

So hypothetically, if we sell him for $14M:

 

Off the top, Huracan keeps 20% of that ($2.8M)

Of the remaining $11.2M,  RBNY would keep all $6.25M to cover the initial transfer fee;

Of the remaining $4.95M, MLS would keep 25% ($1.24M), and RBNY keeps 75% ($3.7M)

 

RBNY: $9.95M

MLS: $1.24M

Huracan: $2.8M

RBNY: $9.95M

MLS: $1.24M

Huracan: $2.8M

So we'd turn a $3.7 million profit, or roughly a 60% profit margin on our initial investment. That's a hell of a ROI on someone we just purchased 5 months ago. I have a hard time believing this will actually come to fruition.

A great signing in the hand is worth 2 in the transfer market, but so it goes as a selling club/league.

Pellegrino is the coach for Leganes. You would have to imagine that he has some cash to spend to be competitive in La Liga.
