It is stated that Leeds have lost their case and as a result, they could now be forced to pay a fee of €21m (£18.1m) to RB Leipzig. The German club’s Commercial Director feels that an appeal will be coming soon from the Whites, suggesting the chances of that happening are quite high.
Should Leeds appeal this case?
The issue pertains to the dispute around Leeds’ insertion of an obligation-to-buy clause in Augustin’s contract which was applicable if the club had been promoted. Even though they got promoted, the loan deal expired well before the club actually sealed promotion to the Premier League.
This information was relayed on Twitter by BILD RB Leipzig. Many Whites fans made their views clear about this.
