Southampton insist that with Van Dijk still having five years left on his deal, it could take an offer in excess of £70million. [Mirror]

70 million? Pass. We can get any CB in the world for that money, VVD hasn't proved anything close enough to be worth such a record breaking deal. At the moment he's only a big fish in a small pond. I mean he didn't even play for half of a season due to injury, the hype is unreal with this one.

70M dont even be stupid. Don't see him as a massive upgrade on anything we've got in all honesty, he had a good season at Southampton but I think we will be disappointed signing him for 70m... probably 40-50m too much

And get who? We don't have many options.

We were linked to Bonucci, Laporte, have Christensen coming back... I don't imagine any of them costing 70m or being inferior to van Dijk? Fair enough we need a new CB perhaps, an upgrade on Cahull at LCB would be nice and Laporte for me would be the best signing we could get in that position but throwing 70m at Southampton for a CB not much better than any we have is ridiculously stupid.

How do you know we don't have many options? If we indeed sign him for stupid money I guess then we can conclude we didn't have other options, but until then it's premature to get to such a conclusion.

I'm only judging from whom we've been linked until now. Bonucci is to old, one injury and he is done, besides that we would have to change our policy at the club for the old players. The other one we've been linked, Laporte sounds great but we got linked to him only once a couple months ago. Also he signed a extension last year I think which probably raised his buyout clause.

I'm sure the club have more on their list than only those 3 names.

You must be some sort of a kinda simpleton or hypocrite ?  if you do not know anything about the odds of Van Dijk joining CFC me thinks , ie the odds for him joining CFC have tumbled and would take £££££ far more than afew ££££ West Ham odds blah blah blah ,  but point is not to point no point

ive no idea wtf you are saying.  Grammar.  Less of the obnoxious posts pal

 

Back to my original point i made, odds mean nothing, they imply nothing, theyre a load of shit

Should stay away far for that price. Not worth it. He isn't even a bonafide WC defender. Not even top 10. Not even top 5 in the PL imo. 

IMO he isnt worth the quoted price, he should have some quality european performances for that, but before injury he was easily top3 defenders in PL, other two being Azpi and Alderweireld, you can throw Verthongen in the mix.

Considering there are 5 years left on his contract length. The club has every right to set the quoted price though. Is he really worthed that much is another question.

Why as fans do we care about the price? Especially in a transfer window where it finally appears that neither does our club. Doing what it takes to bring in good to great players. VVD is definitely an upgrade for us and has room to grow.

Your point was futile in respect to a guide to transfer market of Van Dijk , and if you don't enough about gambling and the markets don't comment on them !

Debate about prices has flown south IMO, markets gone mad, prices are crazy because of TV revenue money.

In any market, Van Dijk at 70m is daft, especially when there are 6 defenders at the club - few of whom are better/as good as him

i know enough that being a favourite is simply by how much money is laid on.   Sticking a few grand on any club would have them faves.  Just a fact.  

 

Sky link a player somewhere, everyone bets on that club, suddenly they're faves.  funny eh

If we actualy sell Matic for 40m and Ake for 20; along with Bertrand for 20, Costa for around 30-40....not to mention Miazga, Piazon etc 

We will be rolling in cash
