Teamtalk.com says that Juve was going to offer a 25 million euro (£16.8million) offer for Germany striker Gomez while a further 20 million (£13.4million) could be tabled for Meira.

WTF?

I agree. Imagine this, you work at a company and you get an offer at another company. So your new employer has to buy you from the previous company (somehow as a commodity) in order to be able to work. And the amount of money is ridiculous to be honest.
Well, when you are under contract, that's what happens. It's a two-way street. The player is just about guaranteed millions of dollars over a few years. In return, his employer can reject offers. If there were no contact, your point would have more merit in this discussion. Sports isn't like a "real world" job for better or worse.

If the player felt like he was getting screwed, he should just sign 1-year contracts ever year...

Football players arent like normal employees. If you are running a business of 1000 people, then whether one capable person leaves or not, isnt much of big loss. However, there are only 20-22 players in FC, of which, you can claim 5 players or so can be regarded to be critical. If a team looses two of those, then they are hit pretty badly. Beside, it isnt as if players don't know the rule when they sign their contracts. The clubs that got good contracts and value for money in their investment; good luck to them. I don't see players complaining when they are not giving their best having signed fat checks. So I dont see why club should be oblieged to hand in massive long-term deals everytime player has a good year or two.

It's all illegal under labour laws, and for good reason. Sure, the big players get a good deal out of it, but there are far more players who are on small contracts.
