  1. So what does “bought himself out of his contract” mean ? we go him on a free or paid him and his agent directly ? any idea what he cost of transfer is or wages….

    • It means there was a clause in his contract with Argentine club that if an offer came for him from abroad he would pay an amount to get out of his contract. Don’t know what it was. If he bought himself out there would be a nominal fee to the club I guess although undisclosed – your guess as good as mine on agent but probably the Joe Cole wages of about 30k
