According Daily Mail, lClubs in the Premier League face a possible wave of legal action by footballers' representatives worth £ 300m, or € 328m. Apparently, several clubs have withheld payments They should have been paid to the agencies this past month, and the agents have instructed their attorneys to sue and claim their fees.

Many representatives are willing to forgo the delays owed to them by smaller teams struggling to survive during the coronavirus crisis, but they won't turn a blind eye to the most powerful clubs in the Premier League.

The Premier clubs paid between February 2018 and January 2018, a total of 260.6 million pounds, which in euros is about 285.2 million, and That figure is estimated to increase this year by 55 million euros more, reaching 340 million. Last season the Liverpool spent £ 43.8 million in fees, followed by Chelsea Y Manchester City with 26.8 million and 24.1 million respectively.

Representatives generally charge five percent of each transaction, whether it is a transfer or a renewal, but agents are free to negotiate other rates with the clubs, as is the case with Mino Raiola, which pocketed 48 million euros in commissions for the transfer of Paul Pogba to the Manchester United. However, in most cases that five percent is divided equally with the footballer with the money that comes out of his tax payment P11D (the club signs a tripartite agreement with player and agent).

None of these contracts has a force majeure clause established. that allows you to cancel payments for the coronavirus, so the agents will go to the end to collect what is theirs.
