Yeah, he has better options right now no doubt about that. I still believe that Paul could be persuaded to stay, it's the club that brought him up after all - but we'll need to compensate him for the sh*tty state of affairs. It's the right thing to do though, we're completely hopeless without him.Agreed. But I think he is fed up here and don't really want to waste his prime years carrying this team and give up the opportunity to win CL and other big things somewhere else while he still haves the ability to be part of it. From his perspective it hardly makes any sense to resign , like what RVP did when he realized Arsenal are not winning anything and came here when we were still good.
