This movie was written and directed well. The cast should be applauded for their great performance. It's refreshing to see that someone could have such a great understanding of social and cultural tensions and actually be able to translate that into a powerful and moving film. I would recommend seeing this film. ---->I don't have time to write more so I will fill the rest with junk...sorry---------When a footballer is under contract with a club, he can only leave if the club agrees to terminate this contract. As a way of compensation, the club to whom the player is transferring will usually pay a capital sum. This is known as the 'transfer fee'. As part of the transfer deal, a proportion of the fee may go to the player himself and any agents involved in the deal. Again, the exact percentage is subject to the regulations of the relevant governing body.
Historically transfer fees were paid even when the player was out of contract (except in Spain), but since the Bosman ruling, this is no longer the case. This ruling occurred when the European Union declared that the practice of demanding a fee for players out of contract was illegal. However, in order to secure an income for smaller clubs, UEFA regulations still state that a fee must be paid for players under the age of 23. This may be set by a tribunal if it cannot be agreed upon between the two clubs.
Transfers may also involve a part-exchange, in which some or all of the capital fee is paid for by trading
