Summer Transfer Window 2019


Recommended Posts

We absolutely could if we were to get rid of (rough figures)

 

McCarthy £5m

Cedric £10m

Stephens £5m

Hoedt £10m

 

Reed £5m

Clasie £2m

Elyounoussi £10m

Hesketh £2m

Boufal £12m

 

Carrillo £8m

Austin £3m

Gallagher £5m

 

Thats a total of ca £80m. Might have overpriced a couple and possibly underpriced a few, but high level we should be able to get somewhere between £60 - £80m for them. And of course the half million a week off the wage bill...

 

There is zero chance that we will sell 12 players in a single window. Especially considering some of them are on fat contracts and are not worth what we paid for them, so will be even harder to shift.

Heads gone? Firstly it's just a wish list but with the exception of Upa, the rest are attainable and within our budget. Sky money and selling the players we need to generates about 140 million! We obviously won't spend near that, but we could comfortably spend 90m if we really wanted to....

 

I'm not sure about that at all. The only way we could generate that is if Redmond / Lemina / Berty depart.

Could we... could we really? What makes you think that?

 

We approach this window in a position that we haven't been in for a while, **** and bloated. The squad is in need of a big overhaul, mostly outgoings. We could raise about £50m from those. If you reinvest that and add £40m, which is under half the money we get from sky, then you have £90m to spend. It can be done, but under Gao, who the f@ck knows!

Yes please. Don't bother to gift wrap him. Money on the table today, please. We polish him for 2 years then sell him back to Liverpool for £75M. Job's a good'un.

 

That's definitely the model we want to get back to

In for Harry Wilson apparently, £25m

 

WILSON VALUED AT £25M

 

Newcastle, Southampton and Brighton lead a host of clubs keen to sign Liverpool's young winger Harry Wilson.

 

Sky Sports News understands Liverpool will want up to £25m for the 22-year old who enjoyed an impressive year-long loan at Derby.

 

It's thought Crystal Palace could join a long list of Wilson's admirers if Wilfried Zaha leaves Selhurst Park this summer.

 

Wilson’s present club Derby are also keen on keeping him at Pride Park next campaign if they defeat Aston Villa at Wembley on Monday.

 

Interest in the versatile Welsh attacker has also spread across Europe with Augsburg, Hertha Berlin and Frankfurt in the Bundesliga - and several clubs in Spain monitoring negotiations.

The Sky money isn't enough to cover the huge wage bill at the club, let alone transfers.

Left footed right winger usually. Cuts inside, absolute beaut of a left peg. Takes a mean free kick.

Last accounts had total staff wages at £96m (including directors and 130 or so non-footballing staff). Adding up to about £110m when additional costs like social security and pensions are factored in. Sky money for the period was £117m.

We’re not going to get £50m from our misfits we want to shift. At best we’ll sell a few for c £25m and maybe get £5m loan fees for a few others (but at subsidised wages). Add a nominal £10m to that and you are likely to get a budget of £40m where we are going to need to be very savvy to find the cb and cf we need (sadly we have wee Ross negotiating). Hopefully we can get a couple of loan deals in without ridiculous obligation to buy (again we need Ross to somehow do this).

Remind me please when we can expect see our retained list?

 

Not sure on deadlines for Premier League but it's the third saturday in May for the Football League, I think.

 

Having said that the only senior player out of contract is Steven Davis, who has already signed a contract at Rangers, so it's not going to be a thriller...

Hazard was 30m.

 

Any update on our interest in Kalvin Phillips? Or was that just a tabloid rumour?

 

 

Although why the transfer fee of a player between two german clubs needs to be mentioned in pounds sterling is less than obvious. Most transfer fees quoted in the press and on-line are approximative at best.

Indeed. Who the **** would pay £10m to sign Cedric (one year of contract then free) or Hoedt (****e)?

 

Answer: Nobody

 

The same as Elyounoussi whose wages will price out most of the leagues he is good enough to play in.

 

Most saleable assets that arent first team regulars are IMO:

 

Gallagher

Reed

Targett

McCarthy

And to be honest I would not be quick to sell Matt Targett either... I like the lad.

Sort of player of which we should beware. These microleagues are just too poor to appraise ability from. We'll just end up with another shedload of Clasies, De Ridders, Boufals and Carrillos. There is talent in the English lower leagues, that's where we should be looking for 12 million quid players not Belgium, Norway or Cyprus.

Might even end up like that bloke Everton bought last summer, can't play for them because he doesn't meet work permit requirements.

Yeah, we should never have gambled on Mane. You gotta take a punt sometimes. Out of the 2 or duffers, you'll get a diamond.

The best talent down there being the likes of Vydra and Sessegnon? There is no right or wrong place to look. You can go down to League 1 and find AOC or Gazzaniga, or look abroad and find Moi or Mane.

 

Our scouting just needs to be a lot better. In Carrillo's case, 10 minutes on Google would have been a start.

You have massively overestimated the value of almost all of those players, IMHO.

You never know, if we're really lucky he might turn out to be the next Mayuka!

Because a league where Billy Sharp is one of the top scorers is clearly a cut above the sort of leagues we got Mané and Van Dijk from :rolleyes:

 

And Boufal and Carrillo came from France. Same clubs from where Chelsea got Hazard and City got Bernardo Silva in fact, but yeah, lets ignore these clubs and limit our search to a league where Dwight Gayle, Jay Rodriguez, Danny Graham, Lewis Grabban and David McGoldrick all scored at least 15 goals each.

Firstly we will be lucky to sell half of them and nowhere near the prices you have set. We will be lucky to get 15-20 million from sales this summer imo.

I'd say probably along the lines of

 

McCarthy £2-3m

Cedric £7m

Stephens £3m

Hoedt £6m

 

Reed - 500k - 1m

Clasie - Free to clear wages

Elyounoussi £4-5m

Hesketh £500k

Boufal £7-9m

 

Carrillo £6m at most

Austin - Free to clear wages

Gallagher £2.5m

If Reed went for anything under a few million it would be awful business. Key player in the Championship

And Gallagher should be able to fetch £8-10m unless this year has reduced it.

 

Pretty sure last summer there was chat of teams willing to pay 7 or 8m for him.

He certainly has. What club would be stupid enough to pay £10m for Elyounoussi or Hoedt or £8m for Carrillo? We might get token fees for them of around £2m but it's more likely we won't be able to sell them at all and will have to try to find clubs to take them on loan.

We were stupid enough to spend roughly £50m on those 3 players.... :cry:

TMW - Fiorentina, 3 Premier League clubs move for Dragowski

 

The Premier League raises the pressing for Bartlomiej Dragowski , goalkeeper of Empoli on loan (dry) from Fiorentina. "My future? For the moment I think only of Empoli," the Polish class '97 had confessed in recent days. But as the last day approaches, the topic gets hotter and hotter.

 

The Premier comes forward - In recent days we had told you about Parma 's interest , but according to the latest collections from TMW in England the goalkeeper leaving Fiorentina has a lot of market. West Ham observers followed him live, but in addition to the Hammers, his name also appeals to Southampton and Huddersfield, all companies that have already had the first exploratory contacts to understand the costs and conditions of the operation.

I think we are forgetting Ralph has a wealth of knowledge of European Players and a lot of contacts. He also has a lot of say on transfers under the new restructuring.

 

Except we don't know how much of a say he gets nor what is the new structure.

The reason that Hoedt and Carrillo are out on loan is that we couldn't sell them. If we could sell them for 10m quid, we would have done so. I doubt their performances whilst out on loan have made potential suitors more keen, though Carrilo has been linked with Panathaniakos, (not a team who have 10 million quid lying around, or indeed one that could afford his current wages). If we can get them loaned out again and don't have to contribute to their wages we'll have pulled off a blinder.

How is Mccarthy only worth 2-3mill!!!

 

It would be fun to start a sweepstake thread with how much people think we will raise from the dross!!
