    Money is the biggest motivator. Not many players have or care about their dreams. If they get a fat check they forget about their dreams or whatever ideals they have. It's true that money is not the only factor but that's overstated. If you have 3 offers and 2 of them are extravagantly more significant you will ignore the 3rd one even if it's the preferred situation, destination or better fit for the player and he will consider only the other two

    Just an example. You have a player who has offers from Inter, Arsenal and Chelsea and for some stupid reason none of us make CL. And he's an AM. At Inter, he'll definitely be the starting playmaker, he prefers to move there because of x reasons (likes the city, the coach, the teammates, the history, the fans, the league, whatever) but Inter's offer is let's say 2,5m net. The offers from Chelsea and Arsenal are both over 4m net. He will either ask Inter to increase their offer to at least 3,5m net or he will just say no. Then he will weigh his options between a 4m and a 4,2m offer. That 200k is not enough to sway anyone at this level really, but the 1,5m difference is. Hence, the player would have rejected Inter for the money but he wouldn't reject Arsenal or Chelsea just for the money. He'd consider both for the money but he'd reject the one that's least appealing even if their offer is a bit better than the other's.

    Semantics.

    When I said "money is never a sole factor", I meant there are things more than money that are taken into "consideration". Factor does not equate to positive motivator. When you are weighing one thing against another, that's already multitude of factors involved.

    Money can indeed be the sole positive motivator, but one does not simply exclusively consider positive motivational factor in the equation.

    If negative factors outweigh the money offered, then money is already not the only thing taken into consideration already.

    Somewhat redundant example, it's exactly what I have stated.

    Obviously if the discrepancy here is large enough, and the negative motivational factor is comparatively small then one would simply choose the bigger offer.

    There are always other contributing factors like club reputation, coach reputation, previous collaboration experience, coupled with the player's objectivity, subjectivity, agent's influence, agent's incentives.

    All I am saying is it's a much more complex equation than money.

    When we are comparing a poor club like Inter against the top tier then the difference is obvious, especially we have such a notorious reputation with consistency as a club. I wouldn't recommend using Inter as an example to demonstrate the norm, and if anything, Inter probably exists in the area of counter example of anything that makes sense.

    He just joined the Colombian national team as the midfield manager for the WC. Kind of werid to pick up someone this late. Wasn’t he a coach of a Swiss team or something?

    Either way Welcome Cuchu!!!

    that's walter samuel, who worked until april as assistant coach at lugano. he left when the head coach was sacked
    My username has nothing to do with the player of loserpool fc, it is just a reference to an Italian novel.

    The saddest part about this is that a good friend of mine got me an inter jersey for my birthday and since hes friends with the keeper of Lugano (da costa) he wanted to get me samuels autograph on it. Now every thing was settled da costa had my shirt and said it wont be a problem to get it signed. Only thing is that samuel never showed up in training again since the head coach got fired!!

    Just my luck i guess.
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?
