Celta Vigo striker Aspas must find £4M HIMSELF to clinch Liverpool move

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas faces having to pay a staggering £4 million HIMSELF to clinch a move to Liverpool.

The Mirror says Aspas' agents on Tuesday made an official complaint to the Spanish Olympic Committee (the approved body to deal with agent disputes in Spain) and to resolve it, the striker is likely to have to fork out £3-4million.

That amount stacks up from the debt already owed by the player to his representatives, plus 5% of his gross contract at Celta AND Spanish IVA tax (21%) on top of that. Then there is 5% of the contract Aspas renewed with the Galician club last summer until 2017 (plus IVA) and 5% of the proposed Liverpool contract, not forgetting tax.

The dispute stems from Aspas enlisting a third party of agents to negotiate him a move while already under contract to the Aimsport Management Group.
