This Jota to Celtic on a permanent rumours seems to be gathering a lot of pace . I think wee should wait till the end of the season to do it the 7 million could be spent elsewhere and when we get that champions league money we could sign him lol .

The scenario with signing Jota could becone a bit of a Catch22 T1M.

If we don't have the funds to strengthen the positions that require better players in the January window AND sign Jota (I very much doubt we can do both) then we should wait until the summer, as the priority must be improving the first team in order to secure the league title.

If we get to the summer and Jota has X amount of goals and assists then another club could come in and offer more for him.

I'd love us to sign him in January, maybe DD could find 6.5M down the back of his couch ?.

{Ed007's Note - Even if another club bid £10 million for Jota we could still buy him for the agreed fee, it's now up to the player really whether he sees his future at Celtic.}

Remember that we don't give the 6.5 million upfront its paid in installments but if it was me I would start to have talks with him now and then see if he wants to stay.

Yeah, I understand that Ed.
It completely depends on what Jota himself decides.
If another club cone in for him and offers him silly wages then he can easily knock us back and go elsewhere.
Hopefully we get him, he's a player that gets fans on their feet.

{Ed007's Note - Fingers crossed, Pedro.}

Totally agree tony ?.

Get him signed up and negotiate the payments. I'm sure if we have to pay 2m upfront in Jan there's still cash to strengthen elsewhere.

It would suit Celtic to get the deal completed this season as they are in to make a big profit remember we never take the full transfer fee to the accounts in that season. We are probably on about 12m of transfer costs this season and jota would take that to about £13.5. But I think we will do that and more as we want that up this season as we have the profit margin to do so. And then we have a few big transfers that fall off at the end of the season to bring it back down.

Ed, I get that we have agreed a fee but if he continues to play as he has and other teams from bigger leagues take an interest, they could blow us out the water with wages offered could they not?

{Ed007's Note - Yeah, Pod that could happen.}

Surely he might just be that footballer that does it for something more as money. there has to be one. Couple seasons and off he goes.

I keep looking for hints from jota, s body language HH.

23 Nov 2021 09:45:53
So let's get that standing order set up for jota lads.
