Every year a number of clubs seem to believe they’re the first ones to have discovered the plan of developing young players and then selling for them a profit in the future.

As plans go, it’s a solid idea but given it would be the aim of countless clubs it’s harder in practice than in reality.

Bari think they’re carrying out the plan well, and that includes their purchases of Elia Caprile from Leeds United and Walid Cheddira from Parma.

Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno report Cheddira cost them €150k, and Caprile ‘even less’. It’s stated Bari paid a ‘laughable’ fee to Leeds for the goalkeeper this summer

In August it was reported the Elland Road side would be due a ‘small percentage’ of a future sale, however, it would appear that undervalued the clause Leeds secured on the 21-year-old.

According to Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno, the Premier League club are actually due around 50% of a future sale, which could come as a nice surprise when it arrives.

Caprile has played every minute in Serie B so far this season, and has represented Italy’s U21 side against Japan. Bari are currently second in the league so will be aiming for promotion to the top flight.
