If he turns out to be not world-class then he'll probably still get starts for the US, but wouldn't for England. Pretty simple pragmatic decision.
I don't think there will be pressure on him to be our savior. We are a pretty decent team who desperately need attackers and desperately need a striker. If he can make it out of group stages of the WC and beat Mexico from time to time then he'll be a legend. The bar is pretty low here. Lol
IF he were to leave, how much would be considered "fair value" for Balo? Are there any strikers his age (please don't come at me with Haaland ffs) that have done the business like he has in a top 5 league?
Personally I'd love to see him get a chance, think he could be a very good option from the bench and a good rotational option for cups etc, but I obviously also understand the temptation of cashing in on what could be his all-time peak valuation.
Sadly I think we will sell him. He isn’t coming back to sit on the bench after this experience and we’ll not loan him when we need money coming in.
The usual clowns on Twitter thinking we can get £50m will be in for a shock when we sell him for £20-25m.
