OaM added another update on Twitter that Al Touwoon's latest opponent filed an official complaint (I'm assuming with the Saudi league) about Kaku's inclusion in the game. The more pressure on Al Touwoon to wrap this up with a nice reasonable transfer fee the better.

Is there some sort of issue with retroactively paying a transfer fee as the Saudi league is out of the transfer window?

provisional ITC was issued by FIFA, not US soccer. 


FIFA, or USSF, or MLS?

Was Kaku transferred when the ITC was issued?
Issues of compensation are often separate, what with structured payments, sell-on clauses, etc.

Is it on us to take the arbitrator's ruling to FIFA or CAS or whomever to pursue compensation if Al-Tawoon just drags their feet on this?

Starting again today...how does this end (outside of Kaku getting injured and Al Taawoun saying - ok, he's free to go back to you now).

Apparently they can just ignore the arbitrator.  Guess contracts don't matter at all now.

I imagine such a scenario wouldn't exactly let Taawoun off the hook, legally speaking. They still got games out of him and it's possible that an injury while playing for them could put them in even deeper shit.

They weren't a party to the arbitrator's decision or subject to the arbitrator's authority.

If the amount sought is less than $5 Million,
RB can sue in Saudi Small Claims Court.

I don't know if non-lawyers get that joke.
