I didn't compare them, I just gave an example. Believe me, you're not right with your free loan assumption. If you want to have examples, even of Bayer Leverkusen: Markus Daun, forward, 3 Bundesliga games, 200 K loan to Bremen; Du-Ri Cha, forward, 0 Bundesliga games, 250 K loan to Bielefeld. And both aren't as good prospects as Donovan. Consider the situation that Daun and Cha wouldn't see playing time in Leverkusen this season and were wish-loans, while Donovan is wanted to return and therefore a non-voluntary loan. I think a one season loan sum for him is between 1 and 2 M.
