Player Valuation: £15m
Good pro to have at that price in any squad in the top half bar City and the RS.
I was specifically referring to this post:Course you did.
I'm not going to pretend that I haven't been critical of Delph before but I try to talk myself into our signings until they've spent some time actually playing for us so this is what I'm thinking for this one.It's weird though because I think when he left Villa everyone would have been happy to sign him. He's gone to City and not done a lot wrong and now he's poor? He's still decent, he can cover Gomes, Gana and Digne and we are paying 1/3rd of a Mings. Even though he has no resale value that means nothing on 8 million.
Is it possible for us to not do this? I really don't want to.Assuming Gueye leaves i wonder will the line up be Siggy in attacking MF with Delph and Gomes behind him? Or will we buy another CM in that case? At the min Delph is better than Schneiderlin and Davies and the other MFs we have don't even get a look in so can't see him being a squad player unless Gueye stays.
I guess it depends on the player and the clubs finances. Ideally it would be great to keep him and have Delph come in and really push Gueye and Gomes for a starting spot and when necessary would allow us to play 433 with actual good players suited to different roles in the center.Is it possible for us to not do this? I really don't want to.
