A “buyout” occurs when a seller sells an item and then buys it back from the buyer. A buyback is a contractual provision by which the seller agrees to repurchase the item or property at a predetermined price if or if a particular event occurs. On the other hand, the provision may give the seller the right, but not the obligation to redeem under the specified conditions. This right looks like a prerogative. In the case of an insurance policy, a buy-back clause stipulates that the insurer suspends insurance coverage if the insured person or the estate meets certain conditions. A right of redemption may be exercised by the selling club from the first or second season after the one in which the transfer took place.  Note that, for easy reference reasons, the project assumes that the player will play in the Premier League during the first two seasons. For example, if the player was transferred after his first season and this season was not covered by a buyout clause (which would be very unlikely), the buying club could still have the advantage of a first refusal transfer clause to respond to other offers. Sales/buybacks and pension transactions serve as a legal means of selling security, but act instead as a secured loan or a surety. The main difference between the two is that the repurchase agreement is always done in writing. However, a sale/buyout may or may not be documented.
If a repurchase provision is triggered, there is usually a contractual obligation to apply the contract and transfer the player accordingly. If such a provision exists and the amount of the redemption cancellation is paid to the original club, then the selling club is free to sell the player and accept a higher amount. If the club refuses to pay the buy-back price or if there is no clause in the contract, the original selling club should be able to apply the buy-back clause as long as it can agree on personal terms with the player and the player wishes to join the club (although these factors are not easy in practice!). Again and again, I get an excellent question (or a number of questions) from the blog readers. Recently, I received some really informative requests from Jason Ives regarding certain contractual transfer clauses.
