Im a kind of with you on this to a certain extent. Yes clubs are financially worst off but that doesnt automatically mean PSG will sell Mbappe for £150m instead of £200m. Wages might mean clubs need to get rid of some of their higher earners and will take reduced fees for certain players that they deem dispensable, but the top players will still retain their value and keep the market high as a rule so itll be a bit of a mixed economy.
Players we have on high wages that we want gone like Sig, Schneiderlin etc will be the big losses (they wouldve been anyway) but due to their wages I cant see many clubs paying a hefty transfer and wages, but the ones we want in to replace, like Allan, that Napoli dont want rid off will still demand a premium. Thats my take on it anyway
Yeah, only players teams want rid of or need the money for, will be sold on the cheap.
They donít want Allan and while heís sat on the bench/out of the squad, his value will only depreciate, so think heíd be available at a lower than market price. We were never playing £40m for him, anyway, and that was before all this. Not sure how much theyíd have to drop their asking price by.
