    85 - 89° beats the hell out of 105 - 110° by a long shot.

    Less than $3 million does not strike me as we think you are a starter money for a medium sized Premier League team.

    5 mil for a former scrap heap pickup would be some very nice business. RB2 has been so tremendous

    Meh. I think Pulisic was asked about him and gave a generic quote (that’s the only quote he gives tbf)

    So why not sign him and loan him back to RB for the rest of the season. Nations League should enable him to get a work permit before the winter window.

    I guarantee that he doesn't have a "release clause" in the traditional sense. MLS contracts would not have those provisions.

    I am skeptical of any link of Fiorentina to an American — I think it’s just because of their new ownership.

    Transfer rumors go here, just ‘cuz (1) they were really clogging up the main forum and (2) it helps draw interest and traffic over to this sub-forum. It was well debated at the time.

    It’ll be Nantes to make the miazga/Long discussion explode!

    Is the expectation that Long leaves this window? Or a loan back to let him finish the season out and move in the Winter window

    Offers seem to be getting decently close to that release clause.

    I think any buying team would be wise to see if they could get it at a price lower than the $5M, even if they were willing to actually pay that amount.

    Long does NOT have a release clause in his contract.

    There have been release clauses in MLS contracts but they are extremely rare. The two I've heard about were Omar Gonalez's first big deal with the Galaxy and one for Brian McBride.

    What is the $5M buyout that's been discussed here? Thanks.

    If it's anything other than British tabloids hearing "New York will sell him for $5 million" and transitioning that, without basis, into "Long has a $5 million release clause," I'd be shocked.

    FFS, I hope you're kidding. Most of the post here assume that there is a $5M buyout that was negotiated!

    People have to learn that British football transfer rumors are as valuable as the paper they're printed on, and no more.

    With like, two individual exceptions, they're all ********ing hacks.
