There was a huge conflict of interest because Claudio’s best interest as a father (getting his some to where his son in the best position) conflicted with what was best for the club (getting professional services from Gio or getting maximum compensation for him).CFG did not recruit Gio
Gio had other opportunities outside of Dortmund
Gio chose the Dortmund First Team route over other first team others, one in particular in England
If CFG really wanted the kid, they would have offered him something
Signing Gio only to sell him is a disgusting idea. It would have HURT Gio and his prospects and put us and MLS in a bad light
Anyone that thinks a conflict of interest exists is delusional. You think Gio owes the Club anything? GTFO.
At any other club, the GM would have done anything within their power to convince Gio to sign. It is IMPOSSIBLE for Claudio to represent both parties properly.
He couldn’t recuse himself from negotiations with other clubs because NYCFC were not involved in those negotiations, because they never signed him.
How can you say that signing him just to sell him is disgusting? Was signing Scally to sell him disgusting? It is literally what every club does with every top Academy prospect. Sign them to either play or be sold.
