Check Out “Shakhtar Donetsk want Manor Solomon’s transfer money from Tottenham.” The 24-year-old Israeli star chose to break his contract with Shakhtar because of the war between Russia and Ukraine, and he joined Spurs on a free transfer earlier this summer.
Despite the fact that Solomon’s contract with the Ukrainian team was supposed to expire on December 31, 2023, he was able to do so and leave the club six months sooner.
Sergei Palkin, the chief executive of Shakhtar, has stated that he intends to speak with Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, about negotiating a transfer fee for Solomon.
Next week, when Spurs face Shakhtar in a preseason friendly, he will have the opportunity to speak with Levy about recovering any of the £5.6 million they spent to acquire Solomon from Maccabi Petah Tikva in 2019.
The London Evening Standard quoted Palkin as saying, “We are sure Tottenham executives understand that Shakhtar invested significant money in the Solomon transfer, investment that Ukrainian clubs in our difficult position, simply cannot afford to lose.”
“We expect to meet with representatives of Tottenham on the night of our friendly game and, in good faith, resolve the Manor Solomon issue. Both parties should be happy with the solution.
“We are not attempting to make money of any manner. All we need to do is pay back all we lost. I am certain that we will come to a mutually agreeable solution that will satisfy all sides.
Despite a world-record £259 million [€300 million] offer from Al Hilal, Kylian Mbappe won’t be moving to Saudi Arabia, according to a source who spoke to talkSPORT.
Other teams, like Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham, are reportedly interested in the World Cup champion.
However, according to Julien Laurens, a French football specialist, he only has eyes for Real Madrid, a longtime suitor.
And he says that signing him now, rather than waiting until his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires and he becomes a free agent, may be in Los Blancos’ best interest.
On talkSPORT Breakfast this morning, Laurens stated that “they haven’t even made contact with him or his family.”
“He’s not going to move to Saudi Arabia, even just for one year, to be a free agent in 2024, even though I like the manner they bid and their attempt to put it on the table.
He is a Real Madrid fan only.
“The question is, will they wait until next summer to sign him free or will they be willing to pay €150 million now?
Real Madrid may not notice a significant difference if they pay the €150 million now rather than waiting for him to become a free agency because the signing-on fee if he joins next year as a free agent would be HUGE.
