You're not wrong there, but, I like a specific type of wide player, so I'll always be biased towards a Ronaldo/Di Maria/Robben type rather than a Mata type. That's not to say I would be disappointed if we got him, but definitely not at the prices they were quoting. I think Dortmund lost out on their opportunity to make a good profit off of him, and when he eventually does go, it will be for significantly less than they wanted. Probably even less than we were offering.I like the idea of making the correct decisions. Something we are massively lacking.
He’s definitely not worth over 100m though. I can’t believe clubs buy into hype and often overpay by multiple tens of millions, but it definitely happens, and I’m glad it didn’t to us here. He’s got 70m written all over him.
