I have just seen somthing bad on the sky sports link if we dont sign him by the time of Benfica's Champions League match he won't be able to play in Evertons UEFA Cup :angry:

 

I think it has nothing to do with date of signing. He has been already in that 25 named Benfica playerlist on uefa CL and he cant play any other euro competition in any other team.

 

 

EDIT: I might be wrong and ill hope i am cause i dont think manny wants to tranfer without eurogames

No he has to play some part in the game to make himself ineligible for another team, read somewhere (can't find it now) that he'd been named in the squad but hadn't joined up with it. Looking hopeful.

 

(edit...found it on the beeb site "Benfica have named Fernandes in their squad for Tuesday's Champions League qualifying match against FC Copenhagen - but did not join the rest of the team on Monday.

If he does play, Fernandes would not be eligible to play for Everton in this season's Uefa Cup - and that could scupper a deal. ")

Found the regulations in question.

 

Regulations of the UEFA Cup

 

17.07 Excluding the three rounds of the UEFA Intertoto Cup and the UEFA Super Cup, and subject to paragraph 17.18 below, a player may not play UEFA club competition matches for more than one competing club in the course of the same season. A substitute player who is not fielded is entitled to play for another club competing in the same season’s UEFA club competitions, provided that he is registered with the UEFA administration in accordance with the present Regulations.

 

17.17 For all matches from the start of the round of 32, a club may register a maximum of three new eligible players for the remaining matches in the current competition. Such registration must be completed by 1 February 2008 at the latest. This deadline cannot be extended.

 

17.18 One player from the above quota of three who has played UEFA club competition matches for another competing club in the current season may exceptionally be registered provided that the player has not been fielded:

− in the same competition for another club,

− for another club that is currently in the same competition.

Furthermore, if the player’s new club is playing in the UEFA Cup, his former club must not have played in the UEFA Cup at any point in the current season.

 

In short:

 

If Benfica dresses Manny tomorrow but doesn't play him, then there are no eligibility issues and we could use him in the UEFA Cup as soon as we get him with no problem.

 

If Benfica actually puts Manny out on the field tomorrow, then we couldn't use him in the UEFA Cup for the first round or the group stages, but if we got to the knockout stages we could add him to our roster in January under the "exceptional registration" provision of 17.18, UNLESS Benfica got knocked out of the Champions' League early and ended up playing in the UEFA Cup themselves at some point. Then we wouldn't be able to use him at all because of the "same competition" restriction.

I think Everton have agreed a fee with Benfica for their 50% stake in the player.

 

Question has to be now much for the Benfica 50% stake and are we also buying the other 50% of the player, and if so for how much (as it doesn't actually have t be the same price we pay Benfica for there 50%)

 

I have heard so may figures being banded about for the Benfica 50% from £4M to £9M.

 

I actually thing the £9M figure quoted is 9M Euro's which is basically £6M - the most widely used figue for the Benfica 50%.

 

I don't really have a problem with us owning 50% of the player - as long as WE control his contract and sale in the future if that is what we want to do.

 

If he is worth £12M, then I don't have a problem with us only paying £6M - 50% of a player can't take to the pitch, so you get the whole player for half the capital. OK if he becomes a £30M player, then we only see half the money, but equally if he is a flop we don't lose possibly the best part of £8-£10M. Can't have you cake and eat it. But again as long as we control the contract and future sale.

Manuel Fernandes set to seal Everton move

 

Aug 14 2007

 

by Nick Smith, Liverpool Daily Post

 

 

Manuel Fernandes

 

EVERTON are on the verge of breaking their transfer record by completing the signing of Manuel Fernandes today.

 

The Portuguese midfielder last night withdrew from the Benfica squad for tonight’s Champions League qualifier after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

 

Fernandes is now poised to decide on a permanent switch to Goodison and Everton hope to tie up the deal before tonight’s Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

 

They have agreed to pay the amount – believed to be £9million – which requires Benfica to release the 50% they own of the player, who scored twice in the nine Premier League appearances he made on loan at Everton last season.

Thought might have heard something from Everton by now or at least cofirmed reports that he has been seen in the uk.

 

With all the reports from various newpapers and websites kind of thought that Everton would have come out and said something

Everton only state things when its done, never before as they used too and often looked foolish when a deal fell through!

Didn't with Baines said that it was getting there and that it was close and then that it had been agreed and also with Vogal and then I even think with Pienar they said he was due in for talks.

 

Think only one this season that not said anything on until all done was Jags

Yeah just seen that at the bottom of this

 

Everton manager David Moyes is closing in on Portugal midfielder Manuel Fernandes as he attempts to increase the competition in his table-topping side.

Defeating Tottenham 3-1 on Tuesday night sent Everton top of the Premier League - for 24 hours at least - and it may be difficult for any newcomer to break into the team after their performance at White Hart Lane. And ex-Preston boss Moyes wants to strengthen his team.

 

He is keen to bolster his squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month - if he can find the right players to bring to Goodison Park.

 

"That's what I need, competition to keep those players on their toes," said the Scot.

 

"The players have asked for the competition, I'm hoping to get it, and I'm hoping to make it even stronger again if I can."

 

Fernandes, who was on loan at Goodison last season, did not feature for Benfica in their Champions League qualifier against FC Copenhagen, meaning he will be eligible for Everton's UEFA Cup campaign.

 

"As far as I know, Benfica have accepted our bid," said Moyes.

 

Good news

This is also a bit more complicated than your ordinary run-of-the-mill transfer since MSI owns half of Manny. Besides whatever dealings we have to make with them and with Benfica we'll also have to run the entire deal past the FA to make sure that the terms are acceptable and we're in compliance with all of the rules - the last thing anyone at the club wants is to get embroiled in another Tevez situation. None of that should be a problem, but it may take a while to dot all the i's and cross all the t's.

At the end of the day we have until Friday midday for him to be allowed to be included in the squad for the weekend game against Reading I beleive.

 

Hope its before then but if thats when it is thats when it is.

 

Maybe its all completed but waiting for another signing to be completed.

:D:D

Dont want to count my chickens and all that but just read this in this mornings Daily Post

 

Imminent arrival Manuel Fernandes is unlikely to be in the squad to face Reading as he hasn’t trained this week since leaving Benfica’s squad in the build-up to their Champions League tie – but Everton will look to push his transfer through before the weekend.

 

:D:D:D

To be honest considering how the team are performing - we are not desperate for any deal to go through by the weekend - its not like he will be in Saturdays team or bench.

 

As long as the deal is done nefore August 31st, thats the main thing.

 

Considering that it looks like we have a couple of big signings coming in this next few weeks, none of our new already new signings have any real contribution and we are top of the league with maximum points after two game - It's a nice feeling being an Everton fan at the moment. (OK very early days, but have to make the most of it - I could be a Spurs fan!!! :D )

Looks like Benfica are already in the market to replace manny, according to SSN they are looking at Rochemback to replace him. Even has comments from their president- looks like this is almost definatley going through. DOn't want to get to excited though. anything could happen. No doubt the Kopites will try and nick him.

According to tonights Echo we have agreed terms with Benfica & the third party company and hes having a medical and " deal should be done in time for him to be in the squad for the Reading game"

Looks like Manny could be the proud new owner of that number 10 jersey!

From DM mouth

He is now close to a permanent move from Benfica, with Everton boss David Moyes confirming the deal is in place.

 

"Manuel had the first part of his medical yesterday and that will be completed today," said Moyes.

 

"I would then expect him to become an Everton player within the next 24 hours."

I am not for squad rotation to be honest - if your winning only make changes as they are needed - suspensions, injuries. These will start cropping up soon enough and everybody will get there chance.

 

I am sure new signings can't complain to much after two games if those on the pitch are getting the results. Also mean's that with sub, appearences they are eased in to the Everton playing style. Doesn't do the new midfeilders any harm watching the movment of the front players.
