Even if we leave ourselves short this season? If we can get someone in Jan then great but not sure I want to go half a season short up front. Surely he would have options in summer too.
We are short all over as far as depth is concerned. Fact is turning down good money for players we may struggle to shift at a later date isn't going to help matters long term, it's going to seriously hinder them.

Let's not pretend Sanchez would have come in and elevated the team in any way. The guy was just as much of a problem as Dier and the rest.
The point is he was sold because he wasn't going to be here from next summer onwards and we got an acceptable offer. He actually looked better in the system in pre season and certainly more suited to it than Dier.

We have to remove players regardless if it leaves ourselves short until the next window or summer so we can bring in those who will be suited to Ange and the system.

Guarantee Levy would get lambasted if he turned down the Galatasary bid and we were "stuck" with Sanchez.

He was but he fit Ange's way of playing far better than the others. Not that I think it was a mistake selling him, it wasn't. The mistake was not bringing in a replacement.

Its my pure speculation that selling Sanchez had the advantage that useless N'Dombele went on loan as part of the deal.

For me, a shame Sanchez went and Dier stayed, but there we are.

Anyway we're in the Richie thread and I was coming here to express guarded optimism that Richie will go to the Gulf, seeing as there's interest there.

We could get some of his swollen original fee back...he could recuperate in the sun, the lower pressure playing out there and a massive wage. Just dreading him turning his nose up at them .

If we don't take the opportunity to move players on who aren't in the long term plans we may get stuck with them for the duration. If an acceptable offer comes in we have to accept it.

Do they want to leave?

Richarlison's entire profile in Brazil would be destroyed if he went to Saudi. It would be worse than Henderson going. Literally no chance he does that.

Richarlison not in our long term plans?

What like Neymars profile has? He’s injured but would undoubtedly be in the Brazil team if not

Brazilians care much less about this than Europeans and are happy to follow the money - and it’s seen as acceptable within Brazil because of the wide gaps in socio economic status, larger family groups and the genuine ability to set up multiple generations of a family

Agreed

I think the amazing start to the season makes it tricky though as we could achieve something this year

Big picture though and Richy is clearly not of the required level long term yet has a big enough profile to get some decent money - if we get offered £40m+ now would seriously consider

ideal would be to have someone lined up

has to be the right player though

Look at Gift Orban that everybody was fapping over. Can barely buy a goal this season in the Belgian league

A left wing socialist icon, earning £200k a week..
Wealth does not automatically disqualify someone from caring about social issues or advocating for change. Many individuals who have achieved financial success are deeply committed to advocating for societal improvements and equality. Believing in socialist values isn't about personal wealth but how one thinks wealth and resources should be distributed in society. It's about advocating for systems that ensure fairness and opportunity for all, not just the few. Richarlison's earnings, therefore, do not contradict their belief in social equality and justice.

Absolutely right. And there's no way he could cure society's ills with his wage.

Saying he's a hypocrite is just the usual dismissive ignorance.

Richi comes across as a thoroughly decent guy. Not your normal footballer.
