Naby Keita (CM) Red Bull Leipzig

Discussion in 'Rumour Mill - Transfer Talk' started by ubermick, Mar 13, 2017.

?

How much should LFC pay for Keita?

  1. No more than £30m - still a lad

  2. Up to £40m - good price for a midfielder of his age

  3. Up to £50m - that's his release clause next year

  4. Up to £60m - he's worth it

  5. Up to £70m - excellent player and will be immense for us

  6. Up to £80m - He's THAT good

  7. Anything RB Leipzig wants. ANYTHING. Just get it done.

    You mean the Scottish lad? Burke?

    Ah, is he Scottish? I knew he came from Forest, so assumed English. That's the one though. Does he look a proper prospect?

    He's mainly been used as a sub, as far as I know. Do remember being quite impressed early on the season, but he was a bit overshadowed by other players in that team, I guess. Rangnick said something about him needing to work on his tactical sense and the difference between BL and English football regarding this.

    He was left out of the last Scotland squad through lack of game time

    So RB have transfered a young highly rated dynamic central midfielder from Salzberg to Leipzig, reckon this may be the start of the wheels for this?

    As both clubs are owned by RB doesn't this chart some potentially murky legal waters?

    They did it with Keita as well I believe, and probably others. If Uefa didn't object then, I doubt they will now.

    Absolutely no idea, I'm guessing as long as they show internal money transfered between separate company entities in their accounts, agent fees get paid etc. Then there is no problem?

    Probably mostly with the respective tax authorities. Clearly the league rules allow the structure already. I am not sure if UEFA has any competitive integrity rules that might apply, but in FFP terms there is not much.

    I was more thinking the ownership being privy to private contractual agreements (such as release clauses) that other teams would not be aware of.

    Why didn't we just buy the guy from Salzburg?

    The only problem is when they both qualified for Champs League or Europa League, one has to bow out. Other than that, they can do whatever the hell they want.

    Our Gulacsi went from Salzburg to Leipzig a while ago, also.

    Speaking of Salzburg, I had a quick look at their player videos and quite like the look of Hee-Chan Hwang. Makes me think that we are putting too much stock into the "upside" of players like Origi and have a tendency to overrate them.

    Better delete those posts before Makati finds out, we don't want him doing anything silly.

    As if UEFA would ban that much money from a competition. No chance. They've done quite a lot to pass the UEFA regs. I'm certain they won't be kicked out of it.

    A perverse part of me wants us to go for an unknown 19 year old Bulgarian CM just to see Makati's meltdown.

    Why won't they be allowed to compete in the competition?

    Think UEFA stated they will have made a decision sometime in June, when is the qualifying? Doesn't that still potentially affect the competition integrity? When you Salzburg potentially throwing a game because they don't want to effect Leipzig? Do Salzburg go into Europa League if they lose the play off? If so, according to what I've seen on UEFA stance, Leipzig still wouldn't be allowed to compete (as they could finish third in their group dropping down into same competition)

    I don't think they would let the governing body omit them from the competition without a fight. I am not sure if qualifying stage teams get into Europa if they fail to qualify and at what stage. I would certainly like to see UEFA takes a strong stance on this one.

    :D
    Nah, if you're determined on a CM I can probably come up with some name, but around that age I'd rather Despodov (winger/wide forward) or Chorbadjiiski (CB), those two are probably Championship level atm and hopefully will develop further. With yesterday's decision of UEFA to not allow CSKA Sofia to play in Europa (to be appealed though), they will be probably easy to get too :D
    Btw I don't think Makati will be the only one that will go bonkers if something like that happens :-)

    Back to Keita, I wanted to ask when is the decision from UEFA expected to be taken regarding the two RB clubs?
