£50m too much for Irons target?


£50m too much?

Is £50m too much for the undoubtedly talented Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha ?

That is what Fulham appear to be asking for apparently.

We have been here before, Felipe Anderson and Sebastian Haller come to mind – it is an extraordinary amount of money, nearly half of our Declan Rice funds.

There is a lot to recommend him, as he would fit in with our Supremo`s tactics of playing on the counter attack, although he is no Declan Rice he would still make a positive difference to our team.

He is probably Fulham`s biggest asset and it is doubtful that the Cottagers would drop their price.

What with less than 4 weeks until the start of our domestic season, I hope we do not do anything rash.

But with still no sign of any new players making their way to the London Stadium, it is all getting a touch concerning.

Mayve, and hopefully, things will change quickly with the Dec deal done!

    What would be the point of bringing in the ‘Pearl Diver’ only to go blow half his budget on 1 player?
    Surely the logic is to invest in long term Academy development?

    Love to see this one over the line. Tried and tested premier league quality. Or we could buy a yet another big centre forward who doesn’t fit the system and sell him for a big loss this time next year. Hmmm! What to do?

    Of course £50m is too much,nobody else is after him as far as I know.He’s only been put at that price to put clubs off of bidding for him.
