[2008] Will Barcelona earn from Navarro transfer?

this post was published exactly one year ago:

Although several papers reported last week that Mallorca left back defender and former Barcelona player Fernando Navarro (25) had been transferred to Sevilla, this wasn't yet announced on the official websites of the teams. Today Madrid sports tabloid As claims that Valencia has again joined the race.

Mallorca and Sevilla would have a deal on a transfer fee of 4,7 million euro (+ 0,3 million euro variables) for the 60 per cent of the transfer right that are owned by Mallorca.

Barcelona still ownes 30 per cent of the transfer rights on their youth product Navarro, who himself ownes the other 10 per cent but would have agreed to drop his share of the fee. It is nevertheless unclear if Barcelona accepted to just drop their share in the deal on Sevilla right back defender Daniel Alves (read more here).

Madrid sports tabloid As and Marca and Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona has agreed with Sevilla to drop their 30 per cent which would mean they won't receive anything if Navarro is transferred to Sevilla. Catalan sports paper Sport nevertheless claims that Barcelona would receive 1,9 million euro° for their part of the transfer rights and that this money will be used to lower Alves' transfer fee.

Josep Maria Orobitg, the agent of Navarro, said two weeks ago in an interview with Madrid sports taloid Marca that the 30 per cent was one of the remaining issues in closing the deal on Navarro: "But it's not only that. And I know little about this because that should be solved between the clubs. We keep on talking but there won't be a deal soon since it's a complicated matter involving a lot of parties and a lot of interests."

I'm pleased we got Alves, but Del Nido realy took us to the cleaners on this one! I know, 1.9mil is pocket change for Barcelona, but that just possibly adds more money to what they paid for Alves. I hope he's worth every penny. But personally, I think it's going to be hard for Alves to meet or exceed the hype. I hope he proves me wrong.
