That's less than what DC paid for Edson Flores. Remember Edson Flores played in Scandinavia as well a couple of yrs ago.
Its a little strange because they just bought him in June after the loan from West Ham expired for a reported $2.86 million.
Coronavirus financial impacts + Haksabanovic wanting to leave probably capping the number.
The other slightly sad reason I think it might be for RBNY is that the Red Bull team that is trying to purchase him has reportedly made multiple offers already.
This team has a track record of trying to lowball other teams valuations of their players.
