Soccer transfer prices are a bit of a mess these days, with teams often being forced to offer big-ticket transfers to get players to move on to higher-profile games.
But the process is simple: You can simply add the desired price to your contract, and then it will automatically calculate the exact amount.
We spoke to experts to learn how to do this with a little help from The Huffington Press.
Determine the price of your transfer: We’ll assume your transfer fee is $1.5 million per year.
That means your contract will include a $1 million salary, $1,000,000 signing bonus, $500,000 in guaranteed money, and a $250,000 transfer fee.
Enter your contract details in the “Terms and Conditions” box, which is highlighted in yellow below.
Select the “Payment Options” dropdown box and select “Transfer.”
You can also enter your contact information at the bottom of the “Contract Details” box.
The deal will be sent to your email address and a confirmation message will appear at the top of the page.
Once you receive the email, you’ll be able to view the deal on your browser.
Once the transfer has been processed, click “Apply” to save your new contract to your account.
Your transfer will appear on your account as “Final,” but the transaction will not affect your team’s finances for the rest of the season.
If you do have any issues, you can reach out to your agent to get a refund.
If your agent isn’t available, you should contact the club directly.
The best way to avoid these situations is to have an online account with a reputable service like TransferWise, which will automatically check your contract and refund your money.
