For what it is worth Jan Koller has extended his contract 'till 2004. I doubt that he won't leave this summer :depress:, but at least we will get even more money for him And some people call me (and the other Anderlecht-fans) greedy .

Please explain for me why Koller would sign an extension of his contract if he is intending to leave after this season. How does it benefit him?

Giglio, Koller now gets a huge rais. He signs another contract which has a duration 'till 2004 (instead of 2003).

Anderlecht benefits because they can now sell him for a higher amount. And since Koller knows that every team in Europe wants him, this highertransfersum won't bother him in finding a new team.

Does anybody know when Radzinski's contract will expire,
since he scored very important CL goals I think he will be as popular as Koller by now...

I hope I'm wrong but I think a lot of Anderlecht players will be moving abroad next season. Money rules (look at Lorenzo Staelens, I don't blame him) ...

Thanks, gOD, but I still don't quite get it.

If Koller goes to, say, Liverpool next summer, will he take his existing contract with him? If so, why would he want to go to a new club and wait three years till 2004 (instead of two years till 2003) before he is in a position to negotiate a new contract? Also, if he's locked into a longer-term contract with a higher salary, doesn't that make him LESS attractive to Liverpool, and thus REDUCE the transfer fee they are willing to pay? (Assuming transfer fees haven't been abolished by then!)

Conversely, if he doesn't take the contract with him in 2001, but negotiates a new one with Liverpool or whoever,
how does he benefit from the extension with Anderlecht? Is it just the extra money he will make this year under the new contract?

As you may have guessed, I don't have the first clue how these transfers work legally.
