We really don’t need another kid in defence. Kid came from Danish league to Portugal and 12 months later he is 80 million defender.
If you're Diomande, go to Arsenal and compete with Saliba at RCB or go to Chelsea and be undisputed starter with Thiago Silva leaving, Disasi not being great and Fofana being an injury crock of a player?
Us missing out on Diomande would be saddening, can play as a CCB in a back 3 and RCB. Best competition for Saliba, should have pulled the trigger last January (prior to joining Sporting Lisbon) and Summer 2023.
Offcourse they are, Portuguese big club lives on advertising their players and selling for crazy fee to English clubs. Just don’t think in our position it’s wise to spend crazy money on teenage striker when we lack top class strikerLook at their form before he joined in January and after he joined. Sporting are well within their right to put a heavy price.
