This has been touched on in this thread so this is probably best place to post this article. We are blowing our competitors out of the water in terms of creating revenue from academy sales.
Mentioned it before but one of the main reasons for the investment in the academy is the generation of transfer fees.
And it would appear it is another thing we excel at and leave our rivals behind with
With the odd gem making it through to the first team.
Just shows how our Academy is viewed by other clubs when we are getting this kind of response. And to think, the fees received have far outweighed our most expensive signing or, in other words, all our signings this season or a Leroy Sane and Ederson over the last 2. Great business if you ask me and just think how much some of the others are worth, now that we are really establishing the Academy.
So we are better than the rest at it.
Time for a rule change, I’d say.
As well you know, that one has already been discussed.
