Probably the structure of the deal. We may have agreef a total fee for I stance but only want 80% of it guaranteed and the rest in bonuses whereas Werder may want 90% in guaranteed fees and only 10% in bonuses they may also want 40% upfront due to their cash issues and we only want to give them 20% upfront for instance. I imagine this happens very frequently as the structure of the deal is what matters to ffp. 

Obviously bonus payments have an impact, when money is paid does not. No idea where this myth has suddenly sprung from.

One of the thing Derby did that was a bit controversial is they wrote down their player values less in the first few years of their contract and backloaded the big losses gambling they would be promoted in the meantime. Standard practice is to amortise over the life of a contract, but the EFL agreed they could do this so it was all signed off.

This is pretty much where we’re at then. Could drag on a couple of weeks. Great. 

This could also be a haggling tactic. Wouldn’t be surprised if a deal is agreed at 25-28M in a few days judging on our ability on negotiations.

That’s fine by me. If we want him, pay the money. 

What’s holding this up, the club or the player? Seem to be getting conflicting stories every day.

Clubs 

they agree on the price, just the payment structure and bonuses. 
 

WB want more up front to cover their financial troubles. 
AV wants to pay it over time to keep it safe with FFP

This was also retweeted by Fabrizio Romano.

Would still fancy Villa to beat Sheff. Utd at home without Rashica, Traore and Martinez but I would really hope Villa could get these three signed and integrated as soon as possible.

This really is gonna go on for another 2 weeks isn't it.. 😩

Gregg Evans will be even more hated than usual if this doesn't happen after he said it was almost time to get excited a couple days ago. The rocket polisher. 

 

The absolute sausage wrangler.

I have no idea why anyone takes any notice of Gregg Evans, I've know lumps of wood be more informed of events at Villa Park than that fraud.

Nobody pines for Greg to log on, he’s such a sap. Unless he’s turned over a new leaf?

If this deal looks like it's going to drag on too long, I think we should set a deadline to pull out. We can't really afford the deal to fall through with no time left to sort an alternative.
