So Marcos Rojo's rights are owned by sports agents

LINK

quote:

Argentina defender Rojo is the subject of disciplinary action by the Portuguese club after he handed in a transfer request and refused to train amid reports of a bid from United.

Sky sources in Lisbon reported that United bid around £16million but it is believed Sporting are holding out for more as they only own 25 per cent of the player.

Management company Doyen Sports, which owns 75 per cent of the player, has hit back at Sporting's stance and threatened legal action if fees due from any rejected bid are not paid.

It is reported that Doyen is entitled to a payment from Sporting worth 75 per cent of any declined offer for Rojo. In this instance that would equate to £12million.

In a statement, Doyen Sports has stressed it cannot interfere in transfer business and that Sporting have a right to retain the player who has a £24million release clause.


quote:

Doyen holds strong rights over the player after paying 75 per cent of his transfer fee from Spartak Moscow in 2012.

The statement added: "Without the intervention of Doyen, through financing, Marcos Rojo would not be a Sporting player."

Sporting have responded with their own detailed statement which alleges interference from Doyen.

They insist they have had "just cause" to terminate their agreement with the company, therefore suggesting they do not intend to pay any fees.

Sporting have also confirmed that Spartak would be owed 20 per cent of any fee received for Rojo above £4million.


what a fricking mess

It's Portugal. The big teams form investment funds with their players

Yeah, Porto wrote the book on how to profit from buying and selling South American players under third-party ownership.

Third party ownership is banned in England after the Tevez and Mascherano to West Ham saga, but is still highly employed in many second-tier leagues.

The problem is that many emerging South American talents are lured into signing these shady deals, because they don't have the means of marketing themselves to big foreign clubs.

It's a huge detriment to Brazilian football especially, because these investment groups like Traffic Sports, have no interest in the actual development of promising player. Their inherent purpose is to profit from transfers.

Wow...that must be fun to deal with. The club has to pay money to keep their own player. Insane. Would paying the $12 million end the deal and making him solely Sporting's or would any subsequent offers also be require the 75% payment to Doyen?

If it's like all the many other third party deals, Doyen would simply have to agree to whatever buyout fee Sporting would pay.

There's a good reason that Italy and England (not sure about Spain but I think they still allow them) have banned these type ownership deals but that in itself has probably been a bit of a boon to the top Portuguese clubs.

I imagine Porto, Sporting, Benfica wouldn't have most of the best players on their rosters if they weren't display windows for third party owners.

It's a huge detriment to everyone outside of the Portuguese clubs and the big leagues.
