Think the value is with players abroad. And also the pay structures!

25 mil for Harry Winks and 35 mil for Morgan Gibbs-White is unreal.
It's always been the case. Premium for a premier league player, an additional one if they're English and the majority of money upfront.
I actually remember a few managers in the early 2000s saying the physicality, fitness and technique of English young players was of a lesser standard to those on the continent but think we've caught up now.
We seem to being linked with a number of big, strong, promising young players.
All from overseas.
Without wishing to sound like Tommy Robinson, what’s happening to all the homegrown (as in lads who were born/grown up in the U.K.) talent?
Regardless of what it means for the England team (no interest to me…..), is this a comment on social development & the rise of the Xbox generation or do kids just not have the drive to succeed in the U.K. any more?
