Forgoing the fee is a favour to Dele that benefits a rival PL team by £10m. Realistically, Levy will already feel like he missed out on a circa £100m payday by not cashing in on Dele at his peak, so another £10m loss might be hard to take.its a bullshit story. Everton through lots of frivolous mitigation of which this is one of them. It was rightly thrown out.
The real story is whether Levy be willing to forgo the fee for Dele. And I think the answer is not straightforward.
Three clubs in five years haven't been able to get him interested but you think an already broke club should spend another 10 million on him? Plus they're doing ok on the pitch now. It's not a risk they need to takeEverton should be investing another £10 million in to getting Dele back to 100%, because he’d be their best player by a mile.
