People don't care about long term success on here, it's all here and now. There's no consideration of young players, no one is ever ready, we can't afford to give anyone a chance because it's too risky and we might get relegated if we do. Now you've got people trying to justify a fee of £60-90m for a 29 year old, despite us having Garcia, Harwood-Bellis and Tosin all more than capable of become a first team regular, all while we have Fernandinho to provide emergency cover if all three fail. It's the same people saying Foden wasn't ready before, when it's been abundantly clear he has been ready for quite a while.We need extra scouting/opinions because we were really interested at one point on Maguire and if United does not go for that 80m bid we migh thave bought him for 50-60m an he is a mediocre defender and also extremely slow who would struggle a lot in our way of playing.
We dodged a huge bullet there no idea what made our transfer/scouting department think at one point he is good for City.
