Interesting how he and his agents participated in an arranged transfer from RBNY to Tijuana eve though they were under the impression the team didn't pick up his option. Very curious! Some may even say telling!
Also, there were early reports of a $3.5MM transfer fee. In addition to Tijuana offering that, the Saudi team was supposed to have paid that... not sure what's real or not though.
Have to say, if I was going to try to screw a team over, not sure I would pick a global soccer powerhouse who will throw money at the problem if only to not establish a precedent.
I tend to think RB thinks they are in the right. They are very quiet on this except to say Kaku is totally wrong. I wonder how it plays out. Kaku effectively sits out a year? RB accept $3MM? Is the Saudi team actually on the hook for contract issues?
