    Ian Maatsen - 40million???

    Posted by Pollster on 20/6/2024, 10:07:32

    If true, what price Alfie?

    Alfie has played a Premier League season and had 8 assists.

    The second most from wing-back.

      I don't think Maatsen is worth that, but he's just played in a champions league final and would be brought from Chelsea, who can command higher transfer fees than we can.

        The value of a player is ultimately decided by what the selling club is willing to accept for him. It is no secret to other clubs that we are not a particularly wealthy club which means Doughty would sell for far less than 40 million.
        So now you know.

          Actually, we're more financially sound than most clubs so your point really isn't valid.

            "We are not a particularly wealthy club"

            Is that incorrect?

              Only half what you posted. Here's the sentence in full:

              is no secret to other clubs that we are not a particularly wealthy club which means Doughty would sell for far less than 40 million.

              Care to explain the jump in logic? We may not be 'particularly wealthy' but we are financially sound with money in the bank so won't need to sell cheap.

              Ultimately it will be decided by a) remaining lemgth of contract b) the player's wishes and c) what is offered and whether the club finds it acceptable.

              Not our current financial status, which is healthy.

            Financially sound maybe, but do we have the same budgets as Chelsea? I honestly don't know but I suspect not.

              I'd argue one of the biggest impacts on a selling price is length of remaining contract.

              If Doughty ( or Adabayo) only had 12 months to run, their price now would be less than if longer. And come January we'd have to sell at a real cut price.

              I've no idea of their contract lengths, but it's often the biggest reason nowadays for players leaving for less.

                Agreed

                But the previous poster's premise is incorrect.

              More to do with what buying clubs are happy to pay

                Played in Champions League final and was voted into team of tournament. Young age. Hence cost id imagine.

                Not necessarily, if 2 or more clubs are competing for a player the price rises.
                The bigger the 2 clubs the better as well.
                However FFP has severely limited expenditure this season moving onwards.
