For three months every year football clubs buy and sell human beings. They spend more than 4 billion a year on footballers. The right deal can help you win you the game’s top prizes, the wrong deal can cost you your job and bankrupt your club. Jim White and Kaveh Solhekol are two of the world’s leading transfer experts. Let them take you behind the scenes into this murky, cutthroat, winner-takes-all, billion-pound world.

Jim and Kaveh have some of the best contacts in the business. In Come and Get Me they will talk to the world’s most famous players, managers and agents to take you to the heart of the deals that happened and the ones that got away. Names Jim and Kaveh will speak to for the book include: Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson, Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Jorge Mendes, Mino Raiola, Jonathan Barnett, Kia Joorabchian, Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and manty, many more.

But has the time come for football to slam shut the window for good? Isn’t it immoral to buy and sell humans? Why doesn’t football have a draft system like the NFL? Jim and Kaveh will speak to leading NFL owners such as Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots to find out how they do things in the USA to answer these questions integral to the future of the game.
