This is all insane. Tielemans fee £32mil (22yrs), Praet £24mil (24yrs), Castagna £22.5mil (24yrs), Cags £18mil (22yrs), Madders £22mil (21yrs)...and on and on.

 

Now we are potentially considering a £40mil bid for a 27yr old or a £35+add ons for a 19 year old with 20 odd first team games to his name. Neither of these 2 players are remotely as yet proven or capable for the fees mentioned in relation to the above players and the results they bring.

 

I hope city have an ace in their pack of cards.

I don’t quite get the point you are trying to make bud. Right now all those you’ve mentioned would go for at least double perhaps treble what we paid for them.

Anyone else get the feeling we are going to sign a defender that’s not been mentioned on deadline day. 

 

If we look back, Bennett, soyuncu, Benkovic and dragovic all came in on the final day without any links. Expect the unexpected 

I actually cannot wait for deadline day this year. Think we’ve got a few aces up the sleeve.

If one were to buy all the desirable/available players, one ends up with a Chelsea-type situation - and out of us and Chelsea, I know which club I'd rather be.

C’mon the suspense is killing me. It’s Chelsea isn’t it?

It can't be Chelsea because..... :ph34r:

I bet you Tarks will when he’s playing in Europe and on a significantly improved wage deal.

He will want to play, he’s not one for being a rotation option, not even in a higher wage. To come hear he will want to be guaranteed a starting place, and unless we constantly play a back three he won’t get that, Evans has been far too good to drop, even if Tarks will improve our game.

Fair enough, I just disagree.

 

With all respect to Burnley, Leicester is an upgrade in most respects. Better facilities, probably a significant increase in wages, European football, and better prospects of success going forward.

 

Add to that, the club and the player’s agent, and indeed the player are probably not ignorant to the reality that Cags may be an asset that’s cashed in on in the future, as interest from bigger clubs will undoubtably continue if he carries on performing as he has been.

 

Add all that together and he’d be foolish to turn his nose up at such an advancement opportunity at his age, even if it did mean he wouldn’t necessarily be starting every game (although still hardly a ‘bench player’ I doubt)

 

Riyad went to Man City under similar terms, it’s not unheard of.

How do we know this - there been an interview somewhere?

If he wants to join a top 6 side 😜 then he has to force his way into the team. Same way Maddison wouldn't get into the team atm (providing Praet didn't get injured) it's part of being in a squad wanting to play European football. Plus we will no doubt switch from 4 atb to 3 atb a fair bit I imagine.

Which club would carry on playing someone ,however good they've been, if there's a player who will improve our game on the bench. 

The manager would be risking their job out of loyalty to a player. Not as if Evans will be dropped, just rotated.

'#Leicester returned to the charge for Wesley #Fofana . The last offer amounts to 40M € , of which 5M € bonus, to secure the services of DC Saint-Etienne. This time, Saint-Etienne leaders are divided on the answer to be provided.'

We've been teased too many times to get my hopes up. lol

If that's legitimate they'd snap our hands off at that! That's an outrageous offer!

 

Not me paying the bills though, and I really want to see him sign, so whatever it takes I guess, but damn...

LOL. We'll see come deadline day. I'm sure the club want him but Rudkin doesn't seem to be the type to be bent over.
