I'd keep him. Good luck getting better for 10 mil.

Williams has to go, Jags is reaching his limit and although I think he would be fine with us for another year, it would not help us to delay finding our new best CB pairing. Plus he may consider a move to somewhere like Villa at this point so that he can still play great for someone. He doesn't get many but age makes players more injury prone too - just a sad fact. I know this because injuries stopped me from being a top footballer as I got older too - I'd just been hit in the mouth with too many bacon butties :)

We need an experienced beast of a partner for Keane and someone like FuMo (sorry @Bally ) in rotation. Pennington hasn't looked like setting the world alight but I would argue that CB is probably the hardest position for a young player to come in at this level and do well in and the lad should still get some minutes next season, wherever we can safely.

Also - for the shouts about money in the Mexican league - there's plenty according to my source - and most of it is backed by the sort of people you wouldn't want to owe money to...

Most teams are owned by big business here. In Monterrey for example Tigres are owned by Cemex (Probably the world's largest concrete and aggregates company ) and Rayados (Monterrey) are owned by Femsa... an international branch of Heineken. Collectively they have revenue in excess of $50 billion dollars a year, so not short of few quid. Wages here are the highest in Latin America and at the the top end probably compare favourably to the Premier league mid bracket player. They are a cagey bunch when buying players though, which is why a doubt they will splash the money on Funes Mori. Personally, I don't think we should be selling him either...not until we have bought a couple of replacements centre backs for Jags and Williams.
