Yeah but don't you think it's odd. They could get him for nothing yet they aren't thinking twice about paying close to 200m right now.FFS. Get a hold of yourself :)
I don't think we aggressively persued any of them. Look at Madrid. First offer for mbappe 160M..second 180.. our first offer for kane 75M+25 (add-ons) .. we managed to mis-handled the transfer by only talking with Kane's incompetent agent. psg were aggressively pursuing messi from last season and now haaland.Losing?
Or rejecting for reasons only the club can tell us
Well I’d quite like some random unknowns name to be thrown into the mix, maybe someone who is good on FIFA or football manager or scores a lot of runs in the fantasy bedwetters league. We could debate the relative, metaphorical and possibly actual merits of signing such a nobodyYeah but what else are we gonna talk about. Don't wanna talk about Mendy, that's depressing as fuck
Now Haaland? The latest report said there are no negotiations from PSG for Haaland.psg were aggressively pursuing messi from last season and now haaland.
Do we ever not make a loss on players ?Now Haaland? The latest report said there are no negotiations from PSG for Haaland.
I would have loved for him to have chosen City for his next club, given his connections to the club but it's clear he doesn't have any loyalties or preferences with any club(not even Real). He wants the absolute highest wage he can get, whoever pays that and the fee Dortmund want, will get him.
Even if we did get him and mess our wage structure up in the process, his agent will be trying to get him a move before his contract runs out, so they can both make more money from it. So we'll be back to square one in 2 or three seasons(probably make a loss on selling him somehow, since clubs seem to be colluding when City need to sell assets). I think Real are the type of club that will buy him and keep him, by bumping his wage up to what he wants because they know they are untouchable from UEFA.
As good as he is, too much about that transfer would be un-City-like, he will end up at either Real or PSG, depending on what happens with Mbappé. Real couldn't possibly be planning on signing both, could they? I get the feeling he would probably prefer to stay in Germany but I can't see Bayern paying him those wages.
Exactly, if we make any profit at all, it's never anything to write home about. I was just saying, you'd expect him to be worth more(than we bought him for) if we had to sell in 3 seasons time because he was agitating for a move with his demands/not signing an extension and that agent of his not shutting up. I can just see it panning out like that. If we are lucky, Delap will have stuck around and turned into a world class striker by then, I suppose. We'd have to hope so, because City probably wont have the lure of Pep by then either, if we have to buy.Do we ever not make a loss on players ?
