A lot of stories today about big clubs selling players to finance the wages of players they want to keep.
It's not as simple as some would have you believe that it's just about throwing money at transfer fees.
LFC wage bill is approaching 60% of turnover, last I read, and above that wages start to become unsustainable.
Then there's the fact that, in most cases, a transfer fee is paid in instalments, over the length of the players contract.
So, you have a finite amount of money coming in, which is known i.e. gate reciepts, sponsorship, tv money etc, then the unknown amounts of prize money, which is why at LFC wages are heavily incentivised, plus merchandising.
It's not just the money made from the sale of a player, it's their wages as well.
This would be less of a problem if agents were taken out of the game, but I don't blame players for wanting to get the best deal they can, and agents at the top level are usually very good at looking after the interests of the player they represent.
