Because this week Real Betis confirmed the signing of Numancia midfielder Cedrick Mabwati for a fee of just £1. No, that isn't a typo.
In what must be the cheapest ever professional transfer that actually involves a fee, Mabwati was able to secure his move to the Primera Liga club by paying a release clause of just 1.20 euros.
When he signed his contract with Numanica, Mabwati cleverly inserted a clause that entitled him to move for the stupidly small fee if a Primera Liga side showed interest in him.
However, Betis did have to pay an extra cent in tax to the Spanish League...
“Here (in Numancia) I’ve learned to fight, not to give up," Mabwati said after completing his move to Betis. "Now I’m going to play in a more competitive league, more hard”.
Mabwati started his career with Atletico Madrid's youth teams and played for the club's senior side in the Copa del Rey.
After a loan spell with Numancia he joined the club on a permanent basis, spending three years with them in total before securing his move to Betis.
No doubt the midfielder will be hoping his next transfer is rather more lucrative.
