£50m gets you most of the way to Zaha.  It’s a ridiculous price.

 

i think Bournemouth know they will get nowhere near that but they have to start somewhere and they probably don’t need to sell.

 

if he leads them back to the PL he is worth £50m to them.

It gets you Zaha and £15m left over, according to Roy.

It could well go down to deadline day. Yes, Bournemouth have sold many of their big guns and don't need extra cash from the sale of Brooks, but if he wants to leave to play in the Premier League, then they have a decision to make. Keep an unhappy player or ask a realistic price.

If he is unhappy & they don't want to lose him then why not a season long loan? Its not unheard of when a club gets relegated.

 

 

if we did that we’d want the option to buy..

50 million Jesus Christ. There’s inflated prices. Then there’s harry maguire inspired inflated prices. Then there’s that. 

The David brooks fan club on here will still be itching for us to pay it all upfront cash.

Bournemouth aren't short of fund right now.  With the sales of Ake , Wilson and Ramsdale , they have plenty of funds.  

Mind boggling that they've recouped about 70-80 million pounds from those three players, after getting relegated.

Is Brooks now more of an asset than Maddison was when we bought him.  To me, there's not much in it.  Maybe premier league experience is in Brooks favour.  Both are excellent players.  They both offer class and creativity.  There has been inflation in transfer fees.  To me , that puts Brooks value at around 25 million.

I'd consider it pretty balanced to pay the same for Perez and Brooks. Perez had a bit more experience, Brooks has more promise really. He's probably already better than Perez. 30m is a fairly middle of the road fee for a young British attacker. 

 

50m is daft but Bournemouth know that, they're likely just posturing, trying to test how much United want him. 

 

That asking price will come down closer to the end of the window if there's still genuine interest from Premier League clubs. 

 

He seems like a decent enough professional to not throw his toys out over giving them a season in the Championship mind.

Agree with this, their forum has a Balance of pay up or shut up (like we do) but a few believe the price they'd accept could be closer to £40 million. So £30 million with add-ons, if this isn't up £30 m up front the club may go for this. But he isn't a £50 million player and there is no way they'll get that from anyone.

Yeah I mean we've said this before loads of times on here, a player is worth what he's worth to BOTH clubs. Bournemouth saying 50 is their way of saying "we don't really want to sell." That's their prerogative and totally fair. 

 

If we were willing to pay 50 for a winger, we'd have done it by now. We're obviously looking around to try and pick someone up for 20/30 odd. It's why we likely wanted Trincao on loan, so we could deal with the money at a later date. 

 

Looking at our transfer business so far this season it looks to me like we've probably ear marked about 60m (Chilwell + some prize money) that we're willing to spend on players. 

 

I'd say our list of priorities looks like it's:

 

1. Replace Chilwell 

2. Sign a CB

3. Sign a winger. 

 

Every time we check one of those off, we know how much we've got for the next. That's why it's taking us so long to settle on targets and why there seems to be two or three strong rumours (Tagliafico, Tarkowski, etc) at any given time because we're bartering around trying to get players in as cheap as possible. 

 

I'd be surprised if we don't tick all of those positions off before the end of the window but they're all gonna need to be in the 20/25 range. That'd be my educated guesswork off what we've seen so far.
