    Transfer window in Belgium is closed so Genk would probably end up forfeiting their EL run if it goes through.

    I suspect thatís the sticking point.

    If this guy is what's near the top of our wishlist then we better hope we sign him, I don't want to see what the back-up plan is. Don't get me wrong Pozuelo would be good, but hardly an ambitious signing.

    Yeah, thatís where the selling clubís transfer window does actually matter.

    Are you sure? I thought people could still depart outside the window, just not come in. For example, Sebastian Giovinco.....

    How did we sell Seba outside the window then?

    Yes but the problem is for Genk. If they let one of their top players go, even if they get a hefty transfer fee, they can't replace him now because their own transfer window has closed.

    yes, of course. A problem for them and we might not get this guy until the summer if that is the case. Speaks to how caught off guard Management was by all of this.

    Apparently Genks average salaries are in the range of Ä235,000. Doesnít tell us much. TFCís average is something like $800,000

    And there are problems for both Genk and Toronto FC in this negotiation phase. Toronto plays the nice guy role and says we will take Pozuelo in May after your Europa League run and then has the problem of watching their property (Alejandro Pozuelo) risk injury in tough competition (plus league play). If Genk falters in EL the local fans are going to be annoyed with the club putting a star player in a compromised position for months... is he ours or is he theirs?

    You will undoubtedly remember the romance between Alejandro Pozuelo and Al-Ahli a few weeks ago.The Saudi club swore with a multi-million contract and was prepared to make a transfer fee of eight million ...

    Yes, they donít want to let a key player go while theyíre on top of the table and still competing in Europa League. As their window has closed, they canít bring in a replacement.

    Would be a big loss for them. Also, he recently signed a new contract after China was after him and the club didnít want to let him go. His transfer fee will be over $10m as his old release clause was around that.

    Pozuelo plays with Jonathan David, so David would have told Pozuelo all about Canada (if the rumour is true)

    Huh? David plays for Gent. Pozuelo plays for Genk.

    I just trolled through the 2014-2015 off season speculation thread - God we were all so naive then.

    Anyways, I was trying to judge opinions of Giovinco at the time - consensus was strong that he was worth it but there were complications. Reading through the thread, there were a lot of potential transfers that ended in nothing but 2 big ones made in the end - Defoe for Alitdore & Giovinco in.

    It took a long time to get it all together though.

    Times are different now - we got 10 days. And there is no "In Bez we trust" feeling. Oh well, rather us then being an Impact fan.

    ***

    Weird thought ruminating on those days.


    What if we trade Jozy to Genk? Like, he goes there in August?

    Trade Jozy? seems short sighted, unless TFC have other strikers in mind. Replace VV with Pozuelo I understand, but without scorers TFC would be all feed with no finish.

    Interesting proposition to have Pozuelo come now on a fee but kick Jozy to them for free in July. Wouldn't do it myself but interesting.

    Ehh... wonít happen. Belgian league salaries are quite low for an ďend of careerĒ move. Free = more salary + bonus, so even more doubtful.

    Jozy's not making end of career moves yet. That'll be closer to 32-34 years old (injuries willing).

    Pozuelo would seem like a rushed signing, hope this isnt the solution from Giovinco
