So in essence you agree that Mata deal was terrible, Herrera didn't want to sign (not like Ole trimmed him as you first claimed), and that we overpaid for both AWB and Maguire - exactly what the other managers have done before him.For a team in the middle of a rebuild, it does.
Mata took a pay cut, and basically it was a deal to secure one of our experienced senior players, which we lack right now. Of course in hindsight it might've gone better if we kept Herrera instead, but apparently he wanted twice of what Mata's on.
We overpaid a bit on Maguire for sure, but he's in his prime years, and will be our first or second choice for the next five years. AWB we overpaid by 10-15m but still a solid signing.. the alternative was 50-60m Cancelo, look how he's turnd out for City.
