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.
