Yeah this would sound about right, no point just cutting our losses on him, we may as well try and "profit" from what is left to pay Inter.
Would you rather keep him, when we've made it clear he's not wanted and he probably doesn't want to be here, or move him on to reduce our losses and free up wages?
B for me.
That's not what I'm saying though. He is highly regarded in Italy and is probably the player we'd get the largest sum from maybe bar Joao. It's not a case of "panic-selling" if you like just because we want rid of him. Why not try and get the best possible deal for a player who is obviously wanted by many clubs in Serie B because he scores goals at that level?
Two months and four interested clubs who have said 'not at that price' isn’t panic selling.
Players are worth what people are willing to pay. They aren't willing to pay more for him.
Just get it done and stop faffing about. '£1m now and maybe £2m later' is much better than 'maybe we'll get £3m soon, but possible nothing'
