    It's almost two years since we sold one of our best players after all.
    Glad we held out for that little bit extra for Benteke too, some wanted to sell him at half the price

    And as we've seen before as soon as you start over paying for players other clubs expect you to do the same when you want their players. That's why when City go In for players they have to pay stupid money to get them.
    I agree 50m is silly money.
    But I think unless there is a bidding war, agents and media get involved he will end up leaving for around 35m

    I don't understand why Chelsea would be willing to spend 50m on another centre back. They deploy a system that doesn't need individual brilliance in defence, just basic competence. They could sign pretty much any decent level centre back and they'd still work well in that system.

    Quite rights, a few players there have been suprises- but perhaps the theory is if 'decent' players are performing so well in this systen, imagine how 'great' players will do, plus they can afford it.

    When you have that wealth, what you pay isn't a major concern. In fact, overpaying is what put them on the map in the first place.
    Maybe so, but we haven't overpaid with Klopp so far and I don't see us starting now.

    Plus theres no guarantee Van Dijk comes in and does well anyway.
