I am buzzing about the possibility of Bacca arriving, now i know £25 m is huge for us, but that is a debate in another thread, i am keen to find opinions on if this will be our last big money signing this window?
With Sakho, Valencia and Tonks leaving for circa £40 mill add that to a probable war chest of £40 mill, then in theory we have up to £70 million to spend this window (Lanzini cash removed).
I have a sneaky feeling Slav / DS have a huge ace up their sleeve somewhere.
I think we will sign Bacca this week, then break that transfer record in another couple of weeks with a player like Mateo Kovačić from Real Madrid.
I think we have to smash the record to compete. I mean look at palace, bidding silly amounts for Benteke. The whole market has shifted with the TV deals.
I think this will only be broken once with the arrival of a striker, the rest will be smart business like Tore, Feghouli and Nordveit.
Will be broken again next year though or possibly January if we continue to exceed.
