Re: Also, I don't think we should sell
But, regardless of where the leak has come from, if they carry any truth about his refusal to sign an extension, then he's not the player to base your rebuild on because he'll be off. If we were the buying club, would you be spunking north of £45m on him at present? I'd be asking questions of our board if we did.
If we're rebuilding we need someone symbolic to build around. Yes Gordon isn't great but he's a local lad living the dream and it's helpful to have a few of those growing with the team FL is building. And he still has a chance of making it into a top notch player.
However if we do sell, I have more confidence in the current set up to use the money wisely than in the case of previous sales (Rooney/Barkley etc).
Club putting it out there he knocked back a new contract three weeks ago and saying he won't sign an extension.
Assume this means one of two things
- club are trying to squeeze him into signing a new contract by putting this out there
- club have decided to cut losses and sell him
We've all seen this playbook before though.
