Well taking just the most ridiculous point about the profit. The transfer isn't complete at this moment, as you can't sign a South American player under 18. The clause being discussed would kick in if the transfer isn't completed in the end. So we'd get the reported £18 million as compensation. We wouldn't pay £8 million and then immediately be forced to sell him for £18 million, he'd simply never be our player! The blog author has completely misunderstood the way the clause has been reported everywhere else.
