We need to get a price from Real for him. £45m to £55m range is fair value. Anything over £65m is an absolute no go (and that us said by me who LOVES him, but I also know our board.)

The board doesn’t have any issues flushing £35-40m down the toilet for Drinkwater and Bakayoko each, but when real quality presents itself they start doubting and penny-pinching. Typical.

RLC and Barkley are attacking mids that don’t offer much in defensive phase, Kovacic does. With him you sacrifice goals but gain penetration, possession retention and defensive solidity. They all fit in the same squad and cover different roles. RLC won’t make it here anyway, so no point bringing him into discussions. Barkley and Kovacic can cover each other or even play together.

Sign him up! We have been crying out for a midfielder like this for ages.

hahaha, be honest you wouldnt mind having him here, altough you might be right

I would mind if he fell over and complained about everything. Hazard's replacement will never be as good overall, but at least be strong. I have my doubts about players coming straight from La Liga.
