Iago Aspas: Has big release clause

Iago Aspas: Has big release clause

Aspas was strongly linked with a move to England in January, with Reading and Swansea reported to be the main suitors.

Reports in Spain have since claimed that Tottenham have a strong interest in the 25-year-old.

A fee of £5million has been suggested, but Celta insist that they will not allow Aspas to leave for less than his €10million (£8.3million) clause.

A Celta source told Sky Sports: "Celta have cleared this subject with the player and his agent. Iago is our main player and it is only possible he will leave for a just price.

"Things have not changed, his clause is set and we will not accept any negotiation on this."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
