I hardly read any of the CAS stuff, from any outlet, not just Lee/The Athletic, but his tactical analysis of our performances seems pretty much on the money.He does come across as a reasonable bloke. However, a couple of things spring to mind;
Having heard him on podcasts I’m not sure the depth and understanding of his grasp of football analysis, tactics etc is that great, he can come across as hesitant when trying to explain our performances. Maybe that’s just realistic, but it sounds unusual coming from a football journalist/ ‘expert’.
Secondly, in terms of the CAS, didn’t he go and consult some of our biggest critics then give what they said quite an easy ride?
Whilst true, it's was the lack of applying the relevant situations to his transfer from those who complained about it.I wasn't one of those who was upset by the Sané fee but this is not the best counter example on account of Valencia desperately needing money before the end of the month to balance their books.
We did not.
Also you could argue that a few hundred league appearances, champions league performances, 50 goals, being an international, being longlisted for the balloon d'or, PFA YPOTY etc should translate to a bit more than €20m difference up front with some add ons.
Cadena SER is very reliable.
Official sources of the VCF confirm to Cadena SER an agreement with Manchester City for the transfer of the Foios winger.
25M fixed plus 12 in variables.
Cadena SER advanced the negotiations on July 9:
Valencia CF confirm 25m euro + 12m euro...wow Txiki
To those that slagged off what we got for Sané, with a year left, I just want to talk to you
Wether you like it or not Sané will be one of the worlds best players in the next years, I have no doubt he could play up top in the future either. whoever we bring in as his replacement I’m not gonna get excited about because fact of the matter is they won’t be as good. We’re downgrading whoever we bring in.
