Keep him for one more season at least, and see how the situation stands next summer. If we have to sell him then for 30-40m, so be it. I'd keep him and try to strentghen significantly this summer.

Trouble with that is that it would essentially be costing Everton at least 30m per season to keep him.

If in 12 months time he's still here (with the current 12 months on his contract), then he could easily run the final year of his contract down which means you've 'lost' 60m+ in the space of 2 years.

unless he's smashing them in to try and prove a point and we get through to the group stages of the Champions League, that is

I reckon 20+ league goals and touching 30 in all comps is something i would probably pay 30m a year for to be honest.

The thing that relaxes me about all of this is that Everton don't get mugged off by anyone. We drive a very hard bargain, so the club's interests will be protected whatever happens.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Absolutely this. The club won't lose on this deal.

He'll be a loss obviously but the club have been exemplary in this, put a big offer on the table but seemingly refused to budge when he wanted to insert a clause which still got him out if a better offer come along.

He stays with is on his current 'low' wage still knowing he needs to put in big performances if he wants a big move and a world cup next summer = Everton win

Whenbthe time comes to sell him we get massive money, we don't let players leave on the cheap, especially not this one = Everton win

It was inevitable he would leave at some point, it's clearly going to be on our terms

I got angry about this 18 months ago when Martinez was running us into the ground. Oh well. Happy if he stays but if not then I hope we can share the burden of goals and assists through the team instead. We have a manager I believe can do this.

Rooney, Arteta, Mori and Niasse all say hi.

 But yes, broadly I agree with your point.

We don't sell cheap. Arteta and Rooney were both good deals imo.

We haven't been too bad at spending it over the years either. We haven't wasted nearly as much money as most prem clubs on failed players.

I rate Mori highly and believe he'll be worth a lot more than we paid in a few years and we will see something back for Niasse aswell and possibly a good price if he bags a few more for hull.

Could you clarify ? Serious request.

well firstly no one would leave him on the bench and secondly no one would forget him

my view is that there is no way he will sign a buy-out clause that prices him out of the market ,those who expect that have their heads up their rear ends and why isn't he being offered 200,000 a week ? That is the least a top striker gets and will be the figure he will sign for when he moves .
If we are to be one of the elite that is where we need to change ,I know someone will quote fair play rules and blowing all our budget and if that is the case he must go as simple as that .He is as good as Linekar and younger and he will be a great player so of course I would love him to stay but he has had it in his mind and sadly will continue to .What would change is only his bank account nothing more
