StrandedNewCorkSeth The question for me is do we really see Lille dropping the 6 or 7 million we all want? That would make him a fairly expensive signing for them.
Doesn't care if Lille have the 6 or 7m we all want - it's whether they have the Xm that the club will accept. My view is that given the state of our FFP finances we would likely accept a lot less that 7m - maybe even half that.
The evidence is that the club are not accepting under valued offers. We got very good prices for a Bacuna and Illori and turned down offers for other players in January. We don’t need to panic sell to stay in business so selling players for less than what we believe they are worth makes little sense. If the club value Meite at £7 million there is no way they will throw away 50% of that valuation.
