He scored something like 22 in 30 in the league when he played as a proper striker. This season he's got 17 in 46 playing as 10/RW/False 9. He would have scored a lot more if Ronaldo wasn't there, he has to give up all free kicks and penalties (he's excellent at both) and obviously a lot of ball hogging.100m for a striker who scored 11 goals.
Must be better value out there
Don't rate him that highly, but would definitely take him over Lautaro Muntari for sure.He scored something like 22 in 30 in the league when he played as a proper striker.

£90m is a little high, but for £80ish he'd be brilliant value, especially given the alternatives.

Ronaldo has really backfired on them. Imagine if we paid KDB more than Aguero, Sterling, Laporte & Silva combined? That's what they're doing.
And in return they do not get the old Ronaldo, 50 goals a season and pulling them through the CL.
They funny thing is that they thought he was the one who'd push them over the edge, but in the end they've screwed their own finances so much by signing him that they've weakened the team to the point where he can't do what they want.
It's been bad for everyone.
Yeah, it was reported PSG was trying to get him last summer and took Icardi only when Dybala decided to stay in Turin.Maybe, but there was also talk about him moving on last summer and it was both real and pretty close to happening by all accounts. He's talked openly about it. Spurs, United, and PSG were legitimately in for him at one point.
