I think he will be off to the blues or freo for a very large sum of money.

This article gives more insight:

https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/crow-walks-out-contracted-mcgovern-demands-a-trade-20180828-p500d6.html

Can see why the Crows must be a lovely place to be.....or not!

 

"In June Fairfax Media reported that McGovern had sought to move club's during last year's trade period despite agreeing to a three-year contract extension in late August, because he felt the Crows had short-changed him in the deal.

 

It’s believed McGovern had agreed to the Adelaide deal because the club said it had no more room in its salary cap.

The Crows then signed Bryce Gibbs from Carlton in a deal worth more per season than McGovern."

Haha, their Gibbs manoeuvre really paying dividends, isn't it?

Walk out on Adelaide, sign up with Carlton.  Doesn't seem like a step up to me.  The bloke looks alright as a third tall but he'll get more attention at the Visy Blues.  They must be throwing some large coin at him.

Same reason lever left, got offered way unders 

But he’s signed until 2020, I’d suggest there’s more to it.

Nope, slyly handing it to him in a brown paper bag.

Averages ten touches and a goal. Probably worth a second rounder.

Watch Carlton panic and cough up a first rounder for him.  I can't wait.

I was going to edit my post with pretty much the same comment. It will happen.

There's talk of their priority pick if it's a mid first rounder

Does that mean Crows will have 3 x first round picks in a draft allegedly strong in the first round?

Three fresh young faces ready to walk out with middle fingers in the air in 2-4 years time. Good luck with that, Crows.

I think that's right, although our pick won't be that high.  After having a few players jump ship they are desperate to get into the Top 3 to nab one of the gun South Australian players so they might throw two of them up to get further up the draft.  

The word is Carlton might cough up their first pick for McGovern and Pick 7, but I'd be very, very surprised if they did that.  They aren't that stupid... are they?

With two years left on his contract, Adelaide will want a 1st and 2nd round pick for him. (Only slightly tongue in cheek 😉)

Carlton are after mids, I can't see them throwing away a 1st round pick for him. Unless they get a priority pick at the end of 1st round, trade that for McGovern and a 2nd round pick?

Really is a seller’s market. I don’t see McGovern holding down a no.1 keep post up forward so if they cashed in on some picks they would be laughing.

Um . . . short answer is 'yes'.
