I find it hard believe the club wouldn’t offer him a new deal, at least to get rid of the £10m release clause?Joe Aribo has not turned down a new Rangers contract
Picking up traction is the line he turned down a Rangers contract and that he will be leaving.
Talksport Yesterday (Alex crook)
That was a condition Aribo and his agent wanted when we signed him.
Played like a fiddle all over the shop. Fan media is supposed to be cynical and hold the club to account over issues, not just feed their line.Well worth that media partnership payment when media outlets are breaking the stories anyway and being met with nonsense rebuttals like this that don’t make sense eh.
Exact same, apologies for the way I worded my first post also mate, a shame joes going for that price but it is still good money for a year left on a contract I supposeAh okay mate apologies, I’d hope it’s 10 up front, or even if we strike a deal to include a sell on
The media and communications strategy is laughably bad.interesting that the club release this info to the fan media then later in the day he is as good as away to Southampton
Trying to get one over the media which I can understand but the reality is the fans don’t care whether he has turned down a contract or is not signing a contract it both leads to the same outcome
He didn’t hit the heights from the first half of the season but he was by no means ‘poor’ for a guy who never got a rest.Yeah he scored but done nothing else that night (like a few others ) but my point still stands, been poor since the ACN.
Mate i agree that he can be fantastic but also infuriating at the same time. If he decides to stay then he gets my full support but if he feels he wants to move on then 10 million for a player who cost 400k is not too bad.He didn’t hit the heights from the first half of the season but he was by no means ‘poor’ for a guy who never got a rest.
Aribo will be a massive loss to us all over the park.
Yep, exactly that.A release clause of £10m up front is in his contract. Not, say, £5m up front and a bunch of add-ons making the total value up to £10m.
Big difference for us in terms of being able to reinvest some of the money in the squad. Not suggesting that’s what is actually happening here but there is a difference.
10 million is not too shabby, not sure how i feel about Aribo, he can be brilliant but hasn't kicked a ball since the African nations cup.
The release clause will be an up front fee but we could potentially be offered a package deal worth more than £10 million but with less of the fee up front.I’d like to think that these release clauses are pretty specific, ie a minimum amount up front.
What do I know, that’s for greater minds than me!
He probably told the club months ago that he has no intention of signing a new deal.I find it hard believe the club wouldn’t offer him a new deal, at least to get rid of the £10m release clause?
Yet Southampton are paying £12m upfront (rising to £14m) for an 18 year old with 1 first team appearance to his name - Roméo Lavia, Manchester City.
