Player Valuation: £70m
“We should only sign players that are better than what we have?!?!”
good luck funding that, mate.
If it was that easy we’d have a team squad of James richarlison, digne type players
what a stupid thing to say
You think its stupid to upgrade and recycle players?
Thats literally what a DOF is supposed to be doing. Granted, hes not yet done this but if there was a DOF handbook im sure that would be after the introduction.
We shift out Bernard and his £120k a week...if we can move on more players then we'd have saved enough to pay for someone.
E.g Bernard out = £120k a week
Gomes + Delph out = £200k a week /£10mil a year.
We could pay £10mil to Ajax or Leverkusen for Bailey/Antony from those wages saved and offer up to £120k which Bernard was earning.
The rest of the transfer fee involved would be amortised to be paid next year.
