I’m not surprised that we would be open to offers for Richarlison. But I think we would want to recoup most of the fee we paid for him.

Which probably means Saudi Pro League or he’s staying here.
He was adamant he wanted to stay in England but I don't see a viable club that would be willing to take him that also satisfies our need to recoup the majority of the outlay.

Perhaps we once again revisit Everton whereby we renegotiate the terms of the deal (and Dele's) in lieu of taking Branthwaite off their hands.

If we sell him we are going to need 2 new strikers. Never know how long one or both take to settle if one or both are coming from outside the Prem

Didn't Ange speak about tough choices and maybe selling good players?

Richy is a very good player but if the boss thinks he doesn't quite fit us for whatever reason then maybe it's the sort of tough choice he is referring to as for another team he could make us regret selling him.

If we want the money to reinvest in a forward we thinks suits us more then we have to be ruthless

A swap for Branthwaite would be great in theory I just wonder if we are looking for the money in order to invest heavily in a replacement striker. Essentially I’m not sure we would want to put that much money into what would essentially be a rotation LCB/LB.

Like you, I don’t see him going to the circus league

It would be nice to recoup but technically anything above £36m is a profit with amortization.

Looks like it's Saudi or bust - which means he's probably staying.

Can't see any other team paying the £60m we would want for him.

Unless I'm very much mistaken, I don't believe we've set his price at that though as patently no club is going to be willing to pay that for him.

Would hazard a guess closer to £40m we'd consider offers.

The boss must be able to see he fits us better than son up top

Looking back he actually had a very good season, scoring double figures and in some really important moments. We should not be selling unless it is the full recoup of £60m.
