Re: No we couldn't have, would have been in ffp shit. It's real life. Not fantasy football. nt
FFP issues-aside for a moment, I don't think a bid of £60 million would have got anywhere near getting Zaha on board. Palace were in the driving seat at the time and were demanding crazy money well north of £60m, something that could only have been got around had Zaha asked for a transfer, and there were no signs of that happening.
Its what Liverpool did 5 years ago
They would buy 3 centre backs for £25m each then realised it would be better getting a VVD for £75m
We could have got Zaha for £60m last season but spent £35m on Iwobi
Where does that leave him? Captain on Saturday and, imho, too good for the bench. Iíd be surprised if he didnít push for a move if he wasnít a regular starter.
Assuming it's true, seems a steal at $10mill. Also assume he goes straight in with Keane as 1st choice giving us a solid 4 CB's with Gibson/Braithwaite as kids coming through.
Bye bye Yerry.
