    should have got some 5m atleast with a sale, what sort of ****ty agreement is this unless mkhi paid us something?

    Correct, the full Sanchez and Özil fiasco has set us back years, and was handled shockingly. From knocking back The £60m, to bidding £90M+ on Lemar on deadline day, to swapping for Mkhitaryan, to loaning him out, from insisting on £20M to terminating his contract. Utterly ridiculous.

    Just couple of month back we were talking about rejected 10mil bids for this bozo and now we are letting him go for nothing... this club is a disaster.

    Pre covid. Financial landscape is very different now for majority of teams.

    I know it's popular to assume all we do is totally incompetent dealings

    There must be some financial sense to this

    Like I said before, he’d have a loyalty bonus to be paid if we sold him. If we’re asking the agent to shift him he’s working on our behalf so we’d have to pay the agent. Even IF Roma decided they’d pay £5m for him you’re not getting much change out of that, especially if we spend a couple of months haggling over a fee while we’re still having to pay him £180k a week.

    Of course. But maybe mutual consent to pay 2 million to **** off and begone.

    The reports about us holding out for 20M didn`t come from the best of sources from what I remember. No way that an Italian club was ever going to pay a big fee for a 31 year old on huge wages that is past his prime. And it`s not true that Mikhi has been great for Rome, he`s done pretty well but but not more than that.

    If we have given Mkhi away to a club where he starts, which can afford him and appear to clearly want him, that is appalling.

    Was concerned we even had to foot some of his wages to be honest.

    Done more for the club than Özil since he joined. Glad we're moving on.

    I **** on the club a lot, but depending on what we're getting out off, be it a loyalty bonus, or any sort of subsidies paid in his wages to roma, this mightve been an acceptable deal.

    Still, I wouldn't put it past the club to allow him to buy out his contract on the cheap.

    People forget that they’re still well-educated business man with serious CVs.

    Just because they may not be the best football wise doesn’t mean they’re just gonna piss our money away. :lol:

    At the time the fans would have rioted if we sold Alexis and we had intentions of keeping our best players like a top club should.

    We then accepted the fee as Alexis insisted on leaving but we couldn’t sign a replacement so we cancelled the deal. Alexis being a human being first and foremost insisted on leaving in Jan so here we are.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Let’s not act like we haven’t had to navigate some tough situations.

    Excellent news. We might have squeezed out a couple of bucks out of Roma if we had kept negotiating, but then we'd risk not being able to offload him at all. One of our most highly paid deadwood out the door, and people are complaining.

    His wages were always too high to get any sort of fee for him. Good riddens, one down a fair few to go.

    At least you can offload him, think we're stuck with Alexis till the remainder of his 800K a week contract.
