Iiiiiiiii dunno yano, that news has wobbled me a bit more but I do think ultimately I'd prefer Gabriel or Todibo over dead money.
The idea that young defenders will learn loads off him is a bit wobbly too. Does it work like that or is it more the case that young players are better off playing?
We need to be smarter than ever and being on the hook for a 36-37 yo CB isn't great, and if he gets his second year then we'd be sitting with an 85k per week centre back who was THIRTY EIGHT.
NB: if we sell Keane and get Silva plus a mid term investment then fine no probs.
