Barkley joining Chelsea for £15M

Barkley joining Chelsea for £15M

Post by Topdawg on Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:31 am

Only 6 months left on his contract. In today's highly inflated transfer prices, he worth more than double that but, in my opinion, he's flattered to deceive and isn't anything like consistent enough.

As a journo just said when asked if he was worth £15m with only 6 months left on his contract......

As soon as he signs, he'll be worth double that...and he's right.

If you think that we pay £30m for Sanchez, with a 5 year contract, he's easily worth £100m come the summer.

Sanchez is 29. he's not worth £100M for me. Maybe £60M

Figuratively speaking. He was worth £65m in the summer with a year left on his contract. If he had 4 years left on his contract at Arsenal, there's no way he would have been £65m if a club wanted him.

Strange move. Turned down a £40 million move in the summer scratch  Cant see him getting in the team with Hazard, Moses Drinkwater Kante Willian Fabregas Pedro Batshuyai Bakayoko as competition
He'd have been better off going somewhere like West Ham or Newcastle but maybe it's just about the money

The same was said about another Everton player, a centre back, who was considered to have a degree of flair, but no real consistency and prone to making mistakes.  I don't think anyone is saying those things any more now he's under the wing of a proper coach.

I don't think Rodwell was ever a centre half now, was he Dawg?

I've always liked Barkley...he's been both injury-prone and in and out of the team. 
I agree, someone like Pep would make him a better player - but whether he'd stay fit is another thing.

Pointless debate really, as it looks like he's having his medical now.

He'll be wasted at Chelsea, for certain.  But that said, if he came to us he'd be up against KdB, Sterling, Sané, Dino and a pair of Silva's.  He wouldn't get much more chance of breaking into our first team than he would for Chelsea and, for me, he doesn't offer enough to nose out either Kev or Spanish Dave.

I'm surprised Klopp wasn't in for him, to be honest.  He's miles better than that dogshit Henderson.

There's that as well..he'd be an FA Cup player at best...but English.

Couldn't have seen him going to the dippers. TBF...he'd bring more to Chelsea than Bakayoko....he's fucking awful!

Well, yeah, he's better than Bakayoko.  Even Fernando was better than Bakayoko.  But he's still never going to depose Willian, Pedro, Hazard, Fabregas, Kante or Moses.

Hang on a sec...  How come WE get criticised for having a ton of midfielders?  Chelsea could field a full outfield squad with theirs!

Which gets me thinking who got the better deal - Monaco or the rest of the teams that bought their players.

I know they're currently in 2nd, 9 points off PSG...but when you think of the players they sold:

Kylian Mbappe to PSG - £166m* loan initially. 
Benjamin Mendy to Man City - £52m
Bernardo Silva to Man City - £43m
Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea- £40m
Allan Saint-Maximin to Nice - £9m
Valere Germain to Marseille - £6.8m
Abdou Diallo to Mainz- £4.5m
Nabil Dirar to Fenerbahce - £4m
Corentin Jean to Toulouse - £4m

Total: £329.3m

They then bought

Keita Balde from Lazio - £27m
Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht - £21.6m
Terence Kongolo from Feyenoord - £11.5m
Stevan Jovetic from Inter - £10m
Adama Diakhaby from Rennes - £9m
Soualiho Meite from Lille - £7.1m
Jordi Mboula from Barcelona - £2.7m
Diego Benaglio from Wolfsburg - Free
Rachid Ghezzal from Lyon - Free
Jordy Gaspar from Lyon - Free

For £88.9m

How many of those sold have done really well? You could argue Mbappe for £166m hasn't lived up to expectations. Played 12 games in all comps...scored 8 goals.

I don't know, 8 goals in 12 games is a decent enough return.  But then if I'd spunked that much on a player, I'd have wanted more than 12 games out of him at this point in the season.

Mendy looked the part until he got injured, so it's too early to say.  Bernardo hasn't impressed me and Bakayoko looks like a huge flop.  As for the others, they are all loose change players, so I guess how they've done is less of a concern.

They've done well with all that income though, to be fair.

Monaco basically sold 4 main players for €300M and brought in 10 players for less than a third of that amount. They just need 3 or 4 to make it and they've done well. To be 2nd after all that turmoil is some achievement.

It certainly is.  Usually making such wholesale changes really buggers things up.  Although, that said, when a league consists of a behemoth and eighteen copies of Rotherham United, it's probably not hard to be second!!
