30m for him should also get in the way of buying two top-quality starting MFs that we need IMO. Plus Auba is close to retirement and apparently fancies a move away so he could easily fund the move and that of one of the two/three MFs. Although we are pretty poor right now performance-wise, IMO we are only a couple of top quality midfielders and top quality manager away from having a really exciting team capable of being top four immediately and capable of challenging for the PL in a couple of seasons. I actually reckon we are a prime Cesc, Gilberto and a Naggelsman, Ten Haag, Bruno Lage or Potch away at being that kind of team right now. IMO Emery and Ole are the most underperforming managers in the PL today if we look at squad potential vs position. At least Ole gets his side to play some exciting football sometimes. Uni can only dream of that!
