Have you ever wondered where substantial amounts of the money behind football's ridiculous transfer fees end up? Because the answer may surprise, confuse and alarm you!
Kate and Jim are joined by author and journalist, Tariq Panja to discuss the murky world of football transfers and just how influential nondescript entities and figures looming in the shadows can be. Tariq, alongside co-writer Alex Duff, dug into the balance sheets and followed the money across Europe and South America over multiple years for their bestselling book, 'Football's Secret Trade. He talks us through who some of these individuals are and explains how they have earned hundreds of millions of euros from their financial and often political influence on the game.
