What are the terms of the sale to Leicester in terms of buy backs sell on and bonuses ?
Does he count as home grown ? Or club trained ?
If the deal could be right I would be tempted to buy him sell Mahrez again if price right and buy Haaland use Jesus out-wide and use Haaland as moan striker and Iheanacho as back up
With due respect, he looks good playing in a team that plays mostly on the counter. And he’s good on the counter.
What makes you think he has the attributes to play in a one & two touch, possession based side against packed defences?
If we forked out £50m to buy him back then I can imagine he’d be very useful starter in maybe 7 or 8 games a season across all competitions.
Also maybe very good as an impact substitute - he could do his standing on the halfway line routine in the dying stages of a game that we’re already winning and when the opposition is pushing up trying to get an equaliser - so that we can close down, sit deep and hoof it in his direction on the break.
Apart from that I like the guy loads but I’m far from convinced that he’d cut the mustard in our system. If he’d shown signs of developing in our direction then I think we’d have loaned him out rather than sell him, either that or sold him for a lower fee with a lower buy-back.
