Not my money, therefore I couldn't care less but just to be clear... Are you actually pretending to not see the difference between +30m and a nominal 1-2m?
Of course I see the difference. However it's not a nominal amount. Even if it was £1-2m (I think we're talking around £4-5m), in the context of a club which has turnover of £125m a year, 1-2% of turnover is hardly money any self-respecting business would write off as if it doesn't matter.
So my question again would be, what is the threshold for where it matters vs. doesn't matter if a player decides to prioritise their own career vs. ensuring the club gets paid?
And finally, if it's not your money and you couldn't care less, why hate on Barkley whatever the amount? (I'm not sure if you are one of the Barkley haters but you've taken up their mantle in this debate so I'll assume so).
