If Barella is good enough for our first team, then around £30m could be decent transfer business. However, my point about not wanting to spend £30m+ on squad players was more of a general point about how I felt we should handle our transfer business rather than a pop at Barella (who I stated that I hadn't watched enough to judge his level). And yes, imo we should be aiming to buy 3-4 top tier/top potential players in key areas and then selling squad players/deadwood to finance that (along with our transfer budget). Those players don't necessarily cost £100m each as there are bargains to be had. However, that does require our scouts and board to be shrewd (e.g. Torreira had a 30m euro release clause).
