To be honest, when I quoted 'world class' it was the player involved, not the fee. A player is only worth what someone is willing to pay. In this respect, LFC paid £35m for Andy Carroll, & we paid a reported £40m for Mangala. Conversely, we paid £6m for Kompany, £24m for Silva, £26m for Yaya and £38m for Aguero. My interpretation of World Class, is a player who could walk into any team in the world, be a starter and do themselves justice. The price paid has nothing to do with it, however I do concede that this type of under contract player, generally does come at a premium because they are that good. Price is an indicator, but no guarantee that a player will live up to the price paid.
