The power of clubs to make football transfers

The clubs are the "owners" of the players, they have them under contract and can decide their future, as long as they respect the terms of that agreement. If a club does not approve a transfer, the transfer simply will not go through. However, in many situations, various interests come into play whereby a club agrees to a player's request to leave or must give in to external pressure to make a transfer.

Role of agents in facilitating transactions

FIFA has tried to regulate the interference and power of player representatives not only for transfers but for private deals, but it has been an uphill battle. Agents remain an integral part of football transfers and can tear down a deal if they are unhappy with their part. Generally, there are commissions and percentages that clubs pay to agents and intermediaries to complete a negotiation, in addition to the payment that the player makes according to his agreement with his agent.

Voice of the players in football transfers

In theory, players don't have much power to initiate, request, or resolve a transfer. That said, in recent years there have been many mechanisms in which footballers, or their relatives carry out plans to "facilitate" their departure to another club or to get a new and better contract using the interest of another team as a pretext. In any case, the money from the transfers is not for the players but for the club (the owner or board of directors) that sells it. The player must settle for a small percentage of the transaction and the contract that he signs with his new team.
