course you can.
3 clubs in for him. 1st club offers release clause fee, 2nd club offers release clause fee plus 500k more, 3rd club offers release clause + 1 million.
3rd club gets player
The release clause allows the player to speak to the club who offered to pay it. If club 3 offers the release clause + 1m and he doesn't want to move there the club cant make him. But if club 1 only offers the release clause and he wants to move there the deal can be done.
The bidding war will probs be over how much wages to offer him.
So the "bidding war" is based on how high each club will go on wages.
Will you fcukers argue about anything?
