If we don't get him then we are just getting llorente and that's that. Our board are not able to close top expensive targets. 

We will just go with llorente and bats..... 

It's not going to happen mate. Do not get your hopes up.

So I read in this thread three startling things: A 28yo is considered old nowadays (regardless of how much he relies on hid pace, he's 28,not 32), that a 23yo only had one good season under his belt and a 24yo who only played for real and Juve didn't have a remarkable season yet or established himself in the starting lineup.
Kids, real life isn't FIFA... The peak age for most players continues to be 25-26 and their momentum runs for 4-5 years.
Just because some very special players peak earlier it doesn't mean the standard has changed.

No, it's actually about resale value. 

 

If Aubameyang comes here and fails, that's 70 mil down the drain. No one will pick him up for more than 20 mil after 2 seasons when he is 30.

 

As for Morata and Belotti, they lead their country's attack at 23 and 24. And the countries are Italy and Spain. On top of that, they are highly rated for the future, will give at least 7-8 years of service (which Auba won't be able to), and if they fail, they will have a better resale value than Aubameyang. 

 

I don't think the difference between Auba and Morata/Belotti is as much to completely ignore the facts above. 

 

As you said, Real Life isn't FIFA..

They are not counting, Musonda Jnr, Kenedy or Christensen in that count. Now I can't speak for you but I know there are many people who begged in this forum for a mangaer to promote our youth. Maybe that is Contes plan.

Reselling? Lol, that's even worse reason to ignore a player in his prime.
Morata is traveling to Milan and Belotti while welcomed by me, may not be the best partner for another younger player in Mitchy.
The argument just got poorer IMO. We have to improve the squad and fill in the void left by Diego, not think about reselling

My argument is if we're going to spend big on a striker - let it be one that'll potentially be at the club for more than 5 years.

I agree to a certain extent but I think there is a thing in modern football now that where a catchment of players go a 3 year cycle, sometimes 4 and leave.

Not only that but it just so happens the year we need a striker there is a real shortage of choice, not just that but I really do get the feeling the board are not willing to match prices in a seller's market, which is why we are really not getting these so called 'targets' quickly, or quickly enough for some.

Wasn't Suarez 28 when Barca got him? If we were making a habit of these type of signing's it would be a bad move as we will have another 10/11 like season on the way eventually (and i think that would finish me, despite the second place finish it was our worst moment of the modern era bar Jose's last month's) but to do it as a one off is ok, if Auba delivers as much as 1 title or CL (and that's a huge contribution not winning a corner by fluke) he's worth it.
