If we could have gotten Adli at the start of the season , we probably would have. Same with Botman. Maybe the reasoning was to save some money, or to leave him to develop, but if all else was equal then I’m sure they would have kept him at Milan.What if Adli flops? What if Botman flops?
Why does a purchase now have to be a "hasty acquisition" and not just an acceleration of a player we believe in and were planning to bring in the summer?
It doesnt have to be either or
Fully agree - I admit I thought we were being way too cautious in trying to lock up some of our players but the Gigio (Maldini going to him after the final match and then their attempt to restart negotiations after we moved on) and now Kessie (his statement and still no resolution and Maldini admitting the length of negotiation) situations have cemented it.
It goes to show that the scouting values them so highly we’re willing to wait for them.
