Osvaldo official to Southampton. What the frick.
Southampton must have an owner willing to splash some cash?
Their offer for Osvaldo was considerably higher in terms of salary than any others from what I was understanding.
I think all the other offers (aside from Wolfsburg, for who Osvaldo seemingly had no interest whatsoever) were ones heavily weighted with performance bonuses both for transfer fee and salary.
Roma (and probably Osvaldo) knew they needed the money on the table considering what a headcase he is.
It may turn out to be an excellent piece of business for Southampton as Osvaldo's talent is unquestionable.
However, they may also have to deal with him scoring a few goals and making googly eyes at bigger clubs before even the honeymoon is over.
I wouldn't be shocked to see him trying to worm his way to Inter as quickly as Falcao did to Real.
