We need to sort Harry's Image rights, and insist that Man City exercise their first option to buy back clause on Iheanacho.

Why are English players genuinely higher priced in terms of their club's transfer demand fee for their services?

Think Maguire is valued at most the same as Van Dijk cost Liverpool.

Harry is decent defender but he's not a 90 million quid defender.  

 

Yes he's decent at bringing the ball out but he is slow, and switches off way too often. 

 

If we got 90 million for him and IF that money went straight back in to the team fully, we would be a stronger side afterwards and no mistake.  

 

Let him go if it's for that amount.

Isn’t it to do with the Home grown rule 

every team must have at least 8 players that were born in England 

so that’s effectively the top 160

 

plus teams don’t know what’s gonna happen post Brexit, so there is a premium on the “top” English players

We will not get £90m. We wanted £90m for Mahrez and got £60m, and he was frankly twice the player Maguire is. 

 

They’ll do what they did before, low ball, destabilise the player and make it so that we just want to get rid! We’d end up getting £65m and some add ons at best i’d wager.

But £65/70 million is still a major profit from what we bought him for.  

 

As much as we don't want to sell, it's a lot of money that we could use in other places

Hazard has one year left 

 

we don’t want to sell ...... that’s why we’ve valued him at a price no one will pay .....if he had looked like VVD the other night then pep might think about it but he is way short of VVD’s defensive ability 

Very true, it's a similar thing to Mahrez. But Maguire is in a position they actually need to improve on. 

 

Unless they go else where, I can see is getting 70mill plus.

 

Assume Mahrez winning the league probably activated some bonuses for us.

I’m not averse to it at all, I just don’t think we’ll get close to those numbers. If we do, then Brighton have as much right to ask £40m for Dunk.

Honestly, with the world we're in, weirder things have happened in terms of prices

Surely this transfer inflation bubble is going to burst soon? Maguire for £90 million is absolutely ridiculous. It'll get to a point where no one can afford to buy any players

It’s madness and not sustainable.

We’re (apparently) asking for 90m

 

i assume this reflects the fact that we would have to pay hull 15m of that and Harry would be due a loyalty bonus which could be as much as 5m  ! 

 

Of course that high quote could force maguire to ask for a move in which case we save that 5mill and poss more ......

Silly question but why has this topic suddenly gone popular.  Has there been some credible news?

I think someone spoke to someone who overheard someone who knows someone who knows Harry.  Harry says he wouldn't mind going to City if it was possible.

 

Which equates to Harry Maguire is about to sign for Manchester City for £90m.

Didn't know about the latter clauses, which if true woukd make sense as to why we're asking for more.

And to be honest he isn't really worth more than that and certainly quite a way off the quality of Van Dyche. He is of course a certain age making him open to improvement which is why clubs will want to buy him. With a good defensive coach he could become a lot better.

He’s English ......they need more home grown players and probably not going to buy them higher up the pitch

That was two years ago now.  Transfer inflation seems to grow exponentially year on year.

Indeed... but he’s not as good, and I don’t think he’s as good as VVD was at Saints either. £65m if good enough, £75m great, anything north daylight robbery. But they won’t pay it.

No, he's not as good, but what is VVD worth today?  Certainly more than £75m.

Man City were willing to give us around that amount in the winter where the value of most players goes up as no one wnats to sell in winter then when it came to summer the price came back down .

 

plus due to man city winning the league that fee is now 70 million

not sure how you can compare the two, tbh. 

 

And surely if Mahrez WAS twice the player, he’d be getting a regular game?
