IMO Retre is the perfect example of why transfer fees should be allowed between A-League clubs. At the very minimum, Sydney should be required to pay what remains on Retre's contract l.e. next season's wage, and City should be entitled to ask for a further fee so that the transfer can go through. And what City receive as the transfer fee should be added to our salary cap figure for next season.

As it is, there is little incentive for clubs to spend several years developing a young player - they do that and then see him picked off by another club with zero compensation, and then have to turn around and find a replacement.

I don't care whether it's City, Sydney or any other club that benefits from the present system - it stinks, and transfer fees should be one of the first changes to A-League "rules."

Absolutely agree with this part. Sydney and City should be able to come to an agreed transfer fee and make the transaction, rewarding the club that puts the time into a player.

Disagree with this bit though. I dont think any minimums need to be appointed, its purely a negotiation between clubs, and probably more importantly the transfer needs to be irrelevant to salary cap.
The bit that frees up as salary cap is the wage of the player that would have been attributable anyway, so in this case the lets say 90k of Retre's salary cap is reopened again, and the transfer fee, which lets say is 20k just becomes a pure profit to the club. I think you need this to maintain the cap's integrity or otherwise you would see a richer club stockpiling talent then selling them off for modest profits in order to inflate their cap.

Didnt Brisbane just earn fees through the sales of Borello and Oar ?

Transfer fees between A-league clubs would most likely have unintended consequences, Would sydney fc really stump up cash for a player like Retre ?

Clubs can earn transfer fees on any sale to a non A-League club. So if the club wanted the player they would. There's still nothing to say that a club can't release a player for free; its more that a club would have the option of seeking compensation rather than getting blackballed into a corner over not releasing a player.

All these sort of issues cause no problems in other leagues.  Players are transferred without fee if they are not deemed to justify a fee, and there are rules to compensate clubs which develop and then sell on young players. Disputes go to binding tribunals.  Simples.

What's baffling is FFA has structured it that CCM plays the tards here and gets compensated accordingly (more than if they played at home) yet they're against transfer fees. It's an absolute Mickey mouse league the way they run it.
