We shouldn't need him. We have Stones and Sterling and Gunn as HG. We then have at least Jesus, Iheanacho and Sané as u21 qualfied for the Premier League, not to mention Maffeo, Garcia, Roberts or Adarabioyo if Pep gives them a chance. We also know Pep wants a smaller squad than the 25 limit with 8 HG, so there's absolutely no need to pad out the HG part of the squad. I'd much rather see our academy players get chances than a 27 year old with 1 season in the championship. Being Association trained should never be an acceptable reason to carry an average player.
