Yeah but it's more difficult to justify that stupidity when a deal like this is already done in the same summer. Bellingham is clearly far and away the best midfielder who will move this summer. It looks remarkably daft if you spend the same or more than Madrid spent on him for anyone. I wouldn't put it past Chelsea but I think other clubs not run by lunatics will probably see that as the upper limit.While this is true the problem here is you haven't considered PL pockets. Antony Mudryk Fofana Cucurella Richarlison etc all PL buys cost 30mish or more extra for no good reason really.
that what i'm thinking too Bellingham is most talented CM in market he went for 100M euros Westham can't demand more for Rice and Caicedo anything over 70M is massively over pay tooWell that puts an absolute cap on Rice and Caicedo. Bellingham is a level above both so unless a team is totally stupid (Chelsea) 80m or so should be the max for both.
He's not that bland tbh, not a close control technician by any means, but his ability to dart forward with the ball is really good, he can cause havoc with a random dribble out of nowhere.Maguire is just Holding with more marketing.
Marginally better and very much a vibes defender, which explains why Southgate keeps him on.
Rice is just a bland footballer, but in a position on the pitch where his blandness is greatly appreciated. I'm dying for a 7/10 for 38 league games midfielder that doesn't go on vacation once the season is close to being over.
Maybe if he missed home but seem he adventure type and gone at young age unless real Madrid sell in 5-6 year time or want to upgrade he'll stay for many yearsIf Bellingham’s career goes to plan I guess he might just never play in the PL then? There’s nowhere to go upwards from Madrid. Can’t believe he’s still 19, joining Madrid for 100m at 19 is insane.
