very good chance its that high.
$170k international slot
- loan savings is anywhere from his salary to salary plus transfer fee. Jorgy made 306,250.04 last year. I was using expected values here but the "~" is also to approximate
- if Jorgy is sold at end of the loan the second half of the salary is off the books even if its a free transfer ~($150k)
- We bought him supposedly for $2.5mm so if we took a 80% hit on that its still ~$500k
- If they cover half his salary during the loan its another ~$75k
So its reasonably anywhere from $170k - $895k using what i think are pretty conservative assumptions. He's still getting Danish youth team call ups so he's for sure valued there. Personally I'd be stunned if we were covering all of his salary but gave them an option to buy as thats extremely unusual.
I wish this were true, I really do, but even according to RBS' MLS rules quote, "if the team the player is loaned to picks up any or all of the players wages, that is considered loan revenue." Whatever we bought him for years ago is irrelevant. Whatever Danish club paid for this 6 months loan, which I think is very little, is all we get. 50K maybe? 75? Certainly no where near 500K you claim.
As far as international slot, agreed this is nice, but wouldn't we get that too if he plays for RB II? And this is assuming Danish club couldn't wait a week.
