Why buy-back clauses are an excellent idea 0

Real Sociedad chairman has just confirmed that star player Carlos Vela will be returning to Arsenal this summer, and the fact the Mexican forward will be paid mere £3.5 million when some of Europe’s top sides were reportedly prepared to offer around £20 million for his services speaks volumes about the amount of money a simple buy-back clause can save a club.

Carlos Vela was allowed to leave the Gunners in the summer of 2012 for some £3 million after failing to prove his worth at the Emirates, but seeing as how there was still a possibility of the Mexican developing into a world-class player, Arsenal officials ensured to insert a £3.5 million buy-back clause in the deal taking the forward to Anoeta.
