It's actually illegal to discuss a contract with a player who's contracted to another team without that team's permission. That's nuts when you think about it. Imagine that in the real world.
But like Kalel and President_Weasel alluded to, it seems that football contracts have very little in common with standard UK employment law
You can even done for "tapping up" just for mentioning another player's name as someone you might like to play for your team.
It's not even that it's all outside the normal law, it has a legal system of its own.
