If I'm Bolagun I'll sign laca Nektiah already look off and we'll sign striker so he'll likely be straight backup. His agent is wierd if your client want to stay why you making it difficult

Yeah. Ideal scenario, sell Laca & Eddie, sign a Toney or Edouard, leaves you with Auba senior, Toney Mid age 2nd option, Balogun youth project getting cup & sub minutes.
Martinelli concentrates on playing left side for the time being.

I don't think Martinelli will be CF more likely will continue developing as LW as you said. Bolagun will have so many chances next season no matter who we sign.

Hate agents, they are only interested in their own cut if a transfer can be made, rather than what is best for the player. All agents should be an equal monthly salary.

Can't blame Balogun when Runnerson is on £40k a week.
Exactly. If we're able to pay absolute dross like him £40K a week, a guy that will (hopefully) never play for the club again, then we can afford to pay that to one of our highest rated prospects.

I personally would not give him 40k and would let him leave on free. It’s one thing we were held hostage by stars, but to have a kid who has done nothing hold you hostage, then you might as well pack it as a club. And the boy is so overrated it’s not funny

Runarsson is on 40k, Nketiah is apparently on 45k, Saliba is on 40k, Saka recently signed a 40k contract (should get bumpered by the end of the season).

Holding was on 25k until he signed an extension, Smith-Rowe will probably get an extension from 15-20k to 40k~.

Based on this it would make more sense if he signed a 20-25k contract, similar to Smith-Rowe and Nelson, given that he hasn't broken through to the first team yet. However, the Runarsson signing kind of skewed it all, so I can imagine him getting a 40k contract.

On the one hand, I wouldn't be too bothered with giving him a 40k contract, but on the other hand we have to be careful of giving away those contracts too easily, because 40k as a minimum for talents barely part of the first team will add up to quite a high wage bill again.

To me its a no brainer. We either lose for free or tie him down on a 40k contract, if he's good enough we use him next season, if not loan him out with part or all of his wages covered. He either then makes it or his value goes up and we move him on. Almost a win-win in that respect.
