Seeing the money we're spending and the players we're after makes me quite happy if we sell him. If we can get a striker or two that will chip in 20-25 goals between them and a some scoring midfielders then there's no reason why we should miss him, in fact it would be a benefit not to be so reliant on one player.
He was given a lot of slack in the past with his comments but I think it's getting to the stage people have had their fill of it now, especially after his comment about returning here not being an option. The fee could be the problem, that and the possibility that managers at top clubs don't rate him as highly as he does. The fact that Raiola has been fairly quite so far would suggest that things aren't quite going to plan behind the scenes. There will probably be a domino affect where one big deal will trigger several others but if he's here next season I hope he doesn't get automatic first choice and has to fight for his place.
