TRANSFER WINDOW IS CLOSED
I wanted to make this post to make one thing clear: FSG did all they could. And you will say “not really. Every player has a price.”
And I will go “yes you are right. Every player does. Coutinho has a price of £120million but he’s still a Liverpool player. Lemar had a price of £92million that Arsenal were ready to pay and Monaco were ready to accept but Lemar refused to leave. VVD had a price of £75million that Liverpool were ready to pay and VVD was ready to leave but Southampton were not willing to sell.”
Every player has a price but the price isn’t the only thing weighing in on the situation. So before we bring our pitchforks out and demand FSGs head, take a minute to appreciate what they did.
Southampton are already preparing for VVDs departure in January. And did we really need to spend £92million on Lemar when we are already stacked in that position and Coutinho has gone nowhere?
Yes it wasn’t the best transfer window, but there were a lot of positives. Let’s take time to appreciate that and hope that in the future FSG better themselves and we get the targets we want.
