    Nah. Raffaele Riva had a cert to show everything was above board.

    I can see why we spent 6m on Oulare - he was built like a brick outhouse, not slow and had shown a decent amount of promise as an 18 year old (even racking up some U21 caps for Belgium in the process), however he hasn't done anything of note in the last 4 years, so instead I'm more amazed we managed to recoup £2.5m-£3m in selling him.

    With the huge loan fees we definitely got for him, we probably made money on the big lump. Plus, I know crafty Gino will have a sell-on clause in there somewhere. Easy money.

    Unfortunately, he was also as mobile and talented as one.

    I hope that's not where the fraud/money laundering is happening though.

    Buy too high then loan back the net spend. Of course our owners would never do this. Right?

    All written off as a diminishing asset/tax loss anyway. They are covered either way in the grand scheme of things.
