Football transfer to change?

Legal challenge has been made to end transfer fees. This means that contracts will literally be worthless and in theory and player can say "I'm off now", pay up his contract (or have his future club do that) and leave.

I'm failing to see the point in this and think it would be awful. Lower clubs will not be able to hang on to any decent players if they can easily leave.

They say the only people who benefit from the current system are the agents and rich clubs, but they will also be the ones that benefit from the new system too. Making it easier to transfer will mean agents can push the transfer through quicker. The poor clubs who rely on transfer fees to survive will die with the rich clubs picking their best players on a small fee.
