Can’t see Man City paying what we want to be honest. Yes they’re big spenders, bigger than anyone, but they seem to try to push a narrative that they’re not the sort of club to spend Maguire/Pogba, Allison/VVD kind of money. Instead they tend to spend at a lower lever but on multiple players and growing that year on year. For example, since 15/16: Sterling, KDB, Stones, Sane, Walker, Mendy, Laporte all signed for £45m-£55m each. Since 2018 they’ve signed Mahrez, Rodri and Cancelo for £60m-£65m each. Same reason they’ve gone for Ake at £40m - they can afford to just pay it for a quick deal but we’d be trying to negotiate it down for weeks.
So I can’t see them going for Chilwell if we’re truly after £90m. Nor Cags, Wilf, Ricardo or Maddison, who I personally believe won’t go for anything less than £100m each.
