That’s actually not how decisions are made. You are forgetting about resale value - with Toby it will be virtually zero, with Maguire, if he performs it may still be high (simply due to him being 4 years younger).Assuming a £250k p/w wage and a £25m fee, Alderweireld on a 3-year deal would work out at £21,3m per year. Maguire, assuming a £200k p/w wage and a fee of £80m would work out at £26,6m per year. That's how clubs calculate transfers, as fees are amortised over the length of the initial contract.
