FIFA law allows it. “ The French newspaper deepens in the news advanced by AS, Pogba’s intention to end up playing for Madrid this summer, just when United intends to renew him. Until now, Pogba has always remained calm although there have already been two attempts to sign him by Madrid (2016 and 2019). This summer should not be different, but it is true that the Law would allow it, in effect, to unilaterally break with United upon payment of an indemnity which, in all cases, would be much lower (for L’Equipe, between 50 and 60 million) than the amount that United would request from Madrid for a transfer.There is an article in the FIFA Player Transfer Statute that underpins the situation. It is 17: “Consequence of the termination of contracts without just cause.” But first it is important to understand that Pogba’s contract is no longer in what is called the “protected period”. This is, according to the Statutes, the first three years of the contract if the player signed by the entity (in this case, United) before the age of 27. Pogba is already on that assumption, as he signed in 2016 with the English. Break in that protected period if it has serious economic and sports consequences for the player. Returning to article 17, which enables Pogba to unilaterally break after these first three years, it indicates that compensation must be paid, calculated according to a series of parameters, such as the years remaining in the player’s contract, the salary they have and the own club’s own estimate of what they may lose in terms of advertising contracts. Pogba has one year left with United, until 2021, but he signed a clause in 2016 according to which the English club can extend it one more year unilaterally. According to L’Equipe, a winger also contrasted by AS, the player is not now in that tough position, nor would Madrid be in favor of forcing so much, but it is a door that opens, Well, in all cases, the estimate is that the compensation that Pogba would have to paying (actually, Madrid) would always be less than £ 100 million in which, according to reports, United is thinking of pricing the world champion. Last summer he asked for 180 million.last_img read more
