Barcelona are such a rotten club, maybe if they stop buying players on ridiculous wages in the first place, it might help.

Remember when they had unicef as their sponsor and focused on developing the youth. What happened to them?

In a weird sort of way, PSG signing Neymar for 200m was the worst thing that happened to them, since then they've been throwing about money like there is no tomorrow (probably won't be for them).
Yep a really disgusting club, rotten to the core

£35m is taking the absolute piss tbf.

I don't really see why. Van De Ven, Jurien Timber, and Dragusin were similar age and quality and went for about that much or less. Starting at 35 and getting up to 40/45 considering he's home grown is reasonable. 70-80 million that Everton want given they need money is absurd.

True but when it's two PL clubs involved the prices often rise , Rice to The Woolwich, Grealish to City etc.

I agree that he’s not a £70-80 million player now but this is Man United. They’ve proven time and time again that they will pay the ridiculous prices clubs will ask them for. I mean how much did they pay for Antony?

Probably Ineos trying to do a factory reset. They used to strong army teams to sell players before they became incompetent.

Unless INEOS scrub everyone's memory Men in Black style, they can expect to still be overcharged. Especially from clubs in the same league.

There are quite a few people at the club where that is literally their job. I'd be worried if there were talented players we hadn't "looked at" and that we weren't "aware of".
I know it is. I just laugh that "looking at" is treated like a serious link. I know every club looks at virtually every player. It's more the media and way it's portrayed by aggregators.
