If I was to buy a player who had a clause where the club I am managing get 50% of any transfer fee the selling club gets, would I still get that 50%?
As an example:
I am Arsenal, and I buy Fabregas for £40m. As part of the Fabregas-to-Barca deal Arsenal get 50% of any fee Barca receive. So would I only spend £20m on fabregas, as I get 50% of the £40m back anyway?
