I think a lot of the opprobrium regarding the fee is unwarranted. £9.5m for a young international defender is peanuts now (in the Prem especially) and people need to re-evaluate what they think a good fee is and isn't.
Deals like £4m for Deulofeu are an anomaly in the current market. Ok, we had heard it was going to be in the £5m range for Funes Mori, and that's the reason for some of the disquiet. Had we known from the start that it would be £9.5m, I don't think people would've been all that bothered.
