I understand this but how in the bloody hell did Liverpool sell players like Solanke for 19 million in 2019 when we can only sell Henderson for that amount when he has a lot more repI see what you are saying but how much leverage do United really have?
Is Henderson so good that, if we said £30m+ or nothing, we could expect Forest not to try and find a cheaper alternative?
This is another problem we have and have encountered. We have tried this game with players like Lingard, Romero and Rojo and, basically every time, its ended up with us letting the player go on a freebie.
We have a lot of players that clubs could consider. However, they are not the only players in their position on the market. Plus, they are not so superior to the alternatives that clubs will pay millions, sometimes tens of millions more, for our fringe players. Hence, the lunacy of our 'fat squad' policy and tying middling players down to long and expensive contracts.
We’re just not very good at selling our players
