Indeed, Barcelona will sign one before the end of the month to end the season in positive.That's not what he's saying though, he's just saying they have to sell assets. That doesn't have to be the CVC deal, it doesn't have to be players - but they must make money.
I agree, plus the fact that Barca are broke and require this to go through to fund their summer spend.They shouldn't be getting what they paid for him, his value has fallen down quite a bit since his CL campaign with Ajax in 18/19.
How can someone negotiate hard without making a bid?
Isn’t there completely different personnel at both clubs since then though?I'm a bit annoyed with Barcelona as We did them a huge favour a few years back and sold them one of the best centre backs in the world (Gerard Pique) for €5m as He was homesick and they aren't prepared to do us any favours at all.
Depends what his worth is purely as a footballer and £65m doesn't seem overpriced at all.How is it a bargain to pay more than they paid for him, when they don't want him anymore?
Great point. Our defence pairing was supposed to Evans + Pique and instead we ended up with Phil Jones + SmallingI'm a bit annoyed with Barcelona as We did them a huge favour a few years back and sold them one of the best centre backs in the world (Gerard Pique) for €5m as He was homesick and they aren't prepared to do us any favours at all.
We already have technically 'bid', that is what negotiating is.How can someone negotiate hard without making a bid?
If so determined to get him then when is the time to walk away and get the other targets as there will be a negotiation process involved there as well?
These posts are just some idiot in front of a keyboard thinking “what shit shall I put out today”
I agree, I think Ten Hag should make a decision this weekend for better or worse and move on.That was before with other people. With Mateu Alemany things are very different.
The sale of FDJ does not make Barcelona get out of any hole, that will be done by the economic levers. The sale of FDJ is to finance other signings.
If United are not satisfied with the amount that Barcelona is asking for, then sign another player, that easy.
If Barcelona sells cheap it is that they are very bad at negotiating and if they sell high it is that they are arrogant and stubborn.
