According to reports sourced by SL10 from local media in Watford, Watford FC are angry over the minimal compensation they will receive when the highly rated Nigeria teenager Ogo Obi’s move to Manchester United is complete.
Obi looks set to join Manchester United after helping their youth team retain the Milk Cup while on trial, but Watford are likely to receive approximately £130,000 for the talented 16-year-old.
It is believed Watford Chairman Raffaele Riva is unhappy over the pay due to them as compensation for Ogo Obi from Manchester United, and he is presently seeking the teenager sign a year deal aside an offering for a scholarship.
However, Obi turned down Watford initial approach before heading on trial with Manchester United at the Milk Cup where he scored three goals in four games to push his claim to be offered a deal by the Red Devils.
If Obi insistson refusing the offer from Watford as it currently stands he will be expected to sign a professional contract Manchester United when he turns 17 later in the year.
In the past, a tribunal system decided how much clubs were entitled to when young players leave for other teams.
But the introduction of the hugely controversial Elite Player Performance Plan(EPP) created by the Premier League means sums have reduced drastically for teen transfers.
In line with that, Watford are only entitled to around £130,000 for the 16-year-old as a training and compensation grant.
