He's already on 11 goals in all comps this season. The numbers he's putting up are just frightening; and the only thing that stunts these numbers is a serious injury.

In a hypothetical scenario, if he wants circa 400-450k at his next club then we have to pay it; because there will be plenty of other clubs willing, they'll find a way of doing so and making it work. He's already the best striker in the world (of course that's a subjective take but I don't see how it's arguable) and he'd arrive here as our most important and valuable player. It's an unpalatable truth that some on this forum might not accept, but we're still some way behind the likes of Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern in terms of prestige and allure. We can't expect generational players like this to run through brick walls to come to us if we're not going to pay a little more than the aforementioned clubs. Because if it comes to us offering pay parity with those others, he's choosing one of them. Simple as that.

He's the one we have to change tact for next summer.
Careful mate I said the same thing about 3 years ago and got nothing but pelters

Do whatever it takes to get him in. If he wants 400-500k, give it to him.

I agree we should pay but the problem we have that the guys who put the deals together seem to still think they can lo ball everyone and get away with it even though we basically lose out a great number of times to other teams . Take Kane for instance I don’t believe we actually put a bid in for him and all this £100 million bid was paper talk we should have bidded £120 million for him and it was take it or leave it because now all levy will say he didn’t sell because for one no bid came and it will be the same for haaland aswell we will cite raiola and not do business with him meaning that one of best strikers in years will go elsewhere . Would this have happened before the Barca boys came here

"the guys who put the deals together seem to still think they can lo ball" so you mean Khaldoon, Sheikh Mansour, Soriano, Omar and Txiki?

Other than the past decade of success, what have these lot ever done for us?

We don't low ball anyone. We put our valuation on the table and if someone comes in and over pays to beat us, good luck to them.

Dealing with Raiola has already been noted as not being a problem. I don't believe the lad wants to sign for us, but regardless, we have put out offer on the table and if the rags or madrid have doubled our offer then I am sure he will take that one.
 

Good Job!

Erling is a better player than Kane only problem is will he stay long enough for it to worth it or push for Spain at the first oppertunity
The same was said about Aguero when he joined us too. Off to Real Madrid the first chance he gets they all said, well that never happened and Sergio stayed for a decade. So this Erling will just leave right away myth needs to be binned once and for all.
