I think itís really dangerous to sell him. Your point about his sell on value vs the cost of another contract is 1 id normally agree with but for me not only is he our best player heís also the 1 who allows us to play sigurdsson and Gomes together despite them not having a lot of defensive quality. The worry is we canít get a like for like replacement for gueye (weíll end up with someone more rounded) and in a 3 with the other 2 they might not have enough defensively. We lose gueye we might need to lose 1 of the others too
It's a risk whenever you sell a good player, but whether it's this summer or in 2-3 years time given the way he runs about combined with his age he's going to need replacing. That's what we're bringing in Brands to do though, solve these issues and we probably have to trust in the system to do that.
You probably have to consider he was seemingly interested in going to PSG, so while we could bat them back mid-season it could just leave us with a disgruntled player long term.
As I said, I'd be happy to see him in the squad again next season, but I think we might sell him rather than offer him a 4-5 year deal.
