Also, FIFA will likely see the Messi case as a precedent, so again will not give Leipzig much time.

egen Augustin: RB Leipzig turns on FIFA
RB Leipzig
Leeds United
4 HOURS AGO
Jean-Kevin Augustin (23) is currently not wanted in Leipzig or Leeds. The transfer posse to the French goes into the next round.

Jean-Kevin Augustin
Didn't get a chance in Leeds either: Jean-Kevin Augustin. imago images
Jean-Kevin Augustin currently publishes snapshots on his Instagram account on a regular basis, which should prove that the French striker is getting in shape with sweaty private training. The 23-year-old is currently a long way from participating in team training.

At RB Leipzig, they no longer feel responsible for the attacker who was originally tied up until 2022, so they refrain from paying salaries. But Premier League promoted Leeds United, who loaned Augustin in the first half of 2020, has also ended the collaboration. The club regards the agreed purchase obligation for 21 million euros in the event of promotion as void, because the loan contract ended on June 30 and thus before the promotion, which was due to the corona, in July.

At RB you are legally on the safe side. So far, however, the Champions League semi-finalist had no recourse to legal action. This will change now. The first installment to pay the 21 million euros is imminent.

If Leeds miss the deadline, Leipzig wants to sue the club at FIFA. Since the northern English club invested around 60 million euros in transfer fees for Rodrigo (Valencia CF), Helder Costa (Wolverhampton) and the Freiburg defensive all-rounder Robin Koch, he could hardly suffer from financial difficulties, so the Leipzig argumentation.

I’m no legal expert but if the contract was we sign him on promotion and it ran out before we did, due to Covid, then I can’t see them winning any court battle.

Whether it’s morally correct is open to debate but either way I feel for the lad.

They said last season that we weren't obligated to sign Kev, however it would be an obligation if both player and club wanted it. Think Leipzig are just trying to make a few quid off us.

Stoopo, could their argument be that Augustin was injured while training for the run in?..

Plans were to use him so if he hadn't have been injured he would have played over the time the contract ran, but being injured in that time knocked everything on its head!..

They could argue the intentions were to use him but he was injured while training for that use!..

Shaun, the deal was to sign him on promotion!..

One thing is certain Stoopo, all contracts which were due to expire required a legal extension and agreement from both the parent club and the player. A simple assumption or word of mouth was not sufficient to secure an extension. Likewise, Leeds are within their rights to apply technicality of law that since (whether on any kind of ‘trajectory’ to, or not) at the point when the loan periods expired on 30 June, they had not attained promotion, and therefore all terms of the agreement expired also. It should be noted that Leeds did not ask for an extension as was the precedent already being set for the majority of existing loans.

Players were not obliged to agree to extend either loan or permanent contracts, (as was the case with Lyle Taylor at Charlton). Therefore, it may also go in their favour that at no point did the player indicate it was his personal wish to have the loan extended and remain on loan at Leeds United.

I guess we’ll see in the next few weeks what the legally declared positions of both clubs are when the inevitable legal challenge arises.

Laws are won and lost on technicalities and I suspect Leeds United might win this one, whether the circumstances of coronavirus provided a lucky break, or not.

"Can they prove that though?"

Stoopo, I'm only wondering if they can bring it up, like Estaremos says, both clubs must have agreed for him to play which was the intention of Leeds, so must have been given the Ok by Leipzig!..

I'm hoping this goes in Leeds favour but think there must be something to give reason for Leipzig to think they can win!..
