That argument does not really stack up clubs,especially for a striker are often prepared to pay high money.Ollie Watkins at Exeter was an example.His experience was entirely Div2 yet Brentford paid £2 million for him and a year later would be able to sell him on for considerably more.

It would depend on the circumstances.

Firstly does the club and it's circumstances permit the fee for said striker to remain real world value. Any big club could pay vast sums for players like Ronaldo and Pogba, but in truth real world value could potentially remain at around 1/3 of inflated value 24 hours later, so even if Brentford were seen as big enough at Championship level to pay £2,000,000 for a player and not keep the value, then having an initial value drop would mean the player would have to be really good to end up being worth more than £2,000,000 after 12 months.

If the initial real world value stablised at equal to or greater than purchase value, the player could sell for more, but he would still have to impress. Something in the order of 3 goals and 1-2 assists in his first 10 games, would go down well I would suggest, but 1 goal and / or an assist would hardly suggest the player could be an out and out striker at that level, barring later improvement in form.

Brentford may well have paid £2,000,000 for Watkins, but that does not mean they could automatically get more, even 12 months later just for having Championship status, as the circumstances would have to be right.

A player is worth what someone is willing to pay for the registration
