As sad as it would be, I'm coming round to the idea of Wilf leaving.

Would love to reinvest the money (let's say £60-70m) in some young British talent:

Lookman (£20m according to the papers) Winger
Bowen (£20m) Winger
Aribo (£10-15m) CM
Batshuayi (£30m) ST

Total: £80-85m, yes it's more than the Zaha sale mentioned above but presumably we'd have a small budget besides the Zaha sale money. Also, losing Zaha's enormous wages (£135k per week) would free up some money.

This would also give us a bit more depth on the wings and may push Andros further if we have three quality wingers competing for two places.

I think we need to spend circa £100m this season to push on. Clearly the majority of that would come from Wilf at £80m so I think an extra £20m funded by selling players would need to be found.

I'd agree with going for youngsters as it'll keep wages down but only agree with Lookman and Bats, not the other two. I'd go with:

Lookman (winger) £20m
Batshuayi (Striker) £30m
Reece James (RB) (as cover for when AWB goes) £15m
Timouri (CB) £20m
Maybe even a cheeky bid for RLC at £25m

Its important we get get talent coming through before we sell from now on (hence the reece james suggestion), that way we wont get striped for players when clubs know how much money we have.

They would probably sell RLC for a quid as he is out for a year with his latest injury. Good player but the poor sod was cursed with the body parts from hell.

It hurts me to say that we may need to sell Wilf to revamp our squad. Recent appetite in the transfer market has shown me that our owners do not want to risk breaking the bank to reinforce the sqaud. So we may break up the squad to manoeuvre players in. I cannot honestly see anyone paying £80m for Wilf, with the sell on deal to Moan U I think we will do well to see 45-50m net.

You are most probably right about Wilf, but value wise I am not so sure and it really depends on what someone is prepared to pay. If you look at what was paid for Man Cityís Mahrez or the striker that Watford sold to Everton, Richarlidson, I would say Wilf is head and shoulders better than those two. Personally, I would be disappointed with anything less than 80 million...

People really are forgetting about United's sell on clause and that 25ish% of whatever we get goes to them instantly.
We also lost £30odd million in the last reported accounts, the board will not spend every penny on players when the business is losing money faster than its making it.

We have to sell to buy and reduce the wage bill ratio from 78% of turnover.

Cpfc made 10 million, before player purchases in 17/18 resulting in a £35 mill loss .. and look what we got Sorloth, Jach Reiderwald etc so 30 mill never to be seen again plus wages.

Unfortunately we need to sell before we buy .. otherwise we will go the way of Bolton /Sunderland etc. Itís going to be a tricky closed season.

Swapping players for part of the fee would be a good way to get the sell on clause down. 40m plus chambers and nelson would be top business.

 


We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

It's good to see that so many of our fans have already sold our best ever player.

I despair.

Three average players do not replace one quality player.

Love the absolute fantasy on here, people have been spending too much time on soccermanager or whatever it is the kids have on their Gameboys these days.

Zaha is sold for 80m and we go and spunk 30m on this player, 20m on another, all whilst keeping to our budget of 100m ffs

To be fair I got Kane, Son and Salah in my fantasy football team for 100m and stil managed to get Maguire and Alison so it can be done.

It's going to take two summer transfer windows to revamp our squad, i feel we need a manager that will be there for it all and after - like a vision. I don't want roy to have one vision, invest the zaha money this summer, only for next summer the awb money spent changing that.. let's be honest, awb will be gone next summer, barring anything drastic.

Unless Roy's successor is similar.

 


This was once a quality forum....

100% agree with you, itís so ridiculous Ďhe needs to test himself at the highest levelí, we are in the premier league...this is the highest level.
If we keep Wilf and add a few then maybe we can both get what we want, not top four obviously but European football is possible.
The accounts are irrelevant, I expect 90% of the premier league love beyond their means. It was one seasons accounts (Iím sure we have made money since we have been promoted), we sure as hell wonít be posting a profit if we end up in the championship.
