Sign a player then send him out on loan to a Club (Girona) who already have 4 of their players on loan.

FIFA/EUFA should stop this sort of thing.

Didn't Watford have a similar scam going a few years back?

In some ways, that's fair enough, as it allows a club to develop players together, whilst benefiting a club of a completely different standard.

Watford had a different scam, in that they loaned players from Udinese, which was in the same ownership.

Something else that doesn't sit well is signing a player then loaning him straight back to the selling club, as MU did with Zaha.

Doesn't Tan have a European club that is basically a training ground for future players for us though? Pretty sure that's where we got Zohore from - potential pot kettle black situation.

My main point being, should a Club be able to loan 5 players from another Club? Doesn’t seem right to me.

I thought the limit was lower than 5, but maybe it has changed.

The Watford / Udinese thing was dodgy on another level. I can't remember the details at the moment. One or two players coming through from a dormitory club as Tan's are is a different matter.
