    Let’s say he’s on 100k a week.
    Would you happy if it was 50k?
    How about a new midfielder too for 50k?
    That’s 100k.
    What about 99,999 a week for mangala and £1 a week for your new midfielder?
    Still 100k.
    Just a thought.

    Not a single concrete link for him. Closest thing I saw was some bloke on twitter with 63 followers claiming Derby were interested in a loan for him. We're definitely losing him on a free or for absolute peanuts.

    Pretty concerning that not even loan rumours. We might have to pay him off, if he even doesn't get loan offer

    Coming back from injury, so there is that. I think with the crazy fees today, smaller clubs will look at players like Mangala who are at big clubs but are not in the plans at all and think they may as well get in touch with the agent to plan on signing them for free as opposed to offering even £10m, which would be a much bigger chunk of a transfer kitty than it would for any of the big six/big clubs in other countries.

    VFM we didn't pay 43 million quid for them. He even beats RSC

    That number is inflated as we intentionally overpaid for him and underpaid for Fernando to limit what the third party owners got.

    I'm not blaming him I'm saying don't be kidded by the nice guy routine. He quickly figured out he was out of his depth and had hit the jackpot money wise and has milked it. Danny Mills is a good comparison. At least Milner contributed.
