I was shocked to read that Real Zaragoza president Agapito Iglesias has put a £21 million buy-out clause on former Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant.

“Pennant is one of our big players and is a big talent, we have not offered him to any teams,” Iglesias told Sky Sports. “He has a buy-out clause of €25m (£21 million) and in that case we would have no choice but we want to keep him, we all believe he will be even better next season.”

Twenty one million pounds for Jermaine Pennant. You must be kidding. Pennant is a player that has never lived up to his potential. Yes he is a former England Under-21 international but he is not a raw talent anymore. He is 27 years of age. In the prime of his career. And not worth £21.
