No chance £35m is the going rate.So far there’s been 205 players bought by premier league clubs this summer, only 7 of them have been for £30m or more. It’s a very big fee whichever way people want to slice or dice it.
£40m I heard?
Plus add ons as well mate.
Ok. Take off 10 mill for Silva (we were prepared to pay in excess of 15 mill remember).Does 25 rising to 30 sound better then?
Similar age, same position, very similar attributes and both just had a good half a season in a good leagueI'd say they were if not the same, very similar
Don’t believe the Silva thing for one second. Firstly why would Brands, a DoF, who’s reputation lives and dies by buying a selling players for value risk paying an extremely high fee just to accommodate previous recruitment cock ups? And secondly why wouldn’t Watford rather not keep the player and get the compensation if Everton are trying to back door it like that?
What would people say is a reasonable fee then?
Because:A) The player wants to play for SilvaB) Paying it seperately could be seen as admission of guilt, even if its mutually agreedC) If they take it to court it could take ages, and then in the end they get less money than offered or the same money but its worth less because either transfer fees keep going up or sterling becomes worth less than sand after a no deal brexit.
Similar sure but if we’re being very honest with ourselves, richarlison tearing up the prem for half a year is worth a great deal more then Lookman looking quite good in Germany for half a season.I would back Lookman to have a season matching richarlison I really would, but richarlison the safer bet at this point. Plus he’s bigger and stronger and maybe quicker so he’s also less likely to lose value.
Not sure Watford care one way or another if Richarlison wants to play for Silva, why would they? They could sell him to anybody.By paying it either way is an acknowledgment of guilt surely? Otherwise why pay it at all? Not like we’re a charity handing out cash.
