Just curious, if you were to stick 5 euros on it, does Carlos move?

You can ask me this, but really my opinion here is worth little because I know the same as all of us who are here. Anything.

But what I do believe is that if Newcastle makes the offer that SKY said before (€45M), Diego Carlos will come.

Yep, he's unsettled. We are desperate but we have time. The less of it we have the stronger Sevilla's hand will be.

 

We would need to be in serious negotiations with another player for them to blink first. Doesn't seem the case right now so the way I see it, they will have to pay the money. If he's that good, it could be cheap in the end.

Now the Spanish League stops. Sevilla's next match is in 11 days. It may be that they have stretched the decision to be able to 'reassemble' the team at this end of the market.

 

The problem for them is that they really only have two centre-backs (Kounde and Diego Carlos). Then there is Rekik, who is the substitute central defender, but who really has a lower level than Diego Carlos and Kounde (and who has also played as a left back).

 

And then there is Gudelj, who is a midfielder who has had to play as a central defender against the short squad.

In addition, Kounde has been injured for the last few weeks, so they couldn't afford to sell Diego Carlos 10 or 12 days ago because otherwise they would have had to play with a defense made up of Gudelj and either Rekik or a youth player.

 

I think that in these 5-6 days Diego Carlos can leave, but Sevilla has to sign one (or two) central defenders.

 That’s perfect then, we’ve got this lad called Clark. Quality player but just feels his time has come to move on now, maybe we can organise some sort of swap deal.

Time wasters, the price has been bumped up several times now, we need to move on, only hope of this deal being done is if Carlos hands in a transfer request and they panic and agree to our last bid. Nearly 3 weeks wasted on high speed goal posts.

I'm still convinced he's Monchi, signed up here to jack up the price.

As I said previously, this much money for a 29-year-old that hasn't ever been considered elite is fucking nuts. 

 

He'd improve us, undoubtedly, but he's not worth paying over the odds for either. 5-10m I can get, but we're talking a mad amount.

I think they've priced us out of a deal at this point. Yesterday it was reported that £30m would get him and that seemed close enough to being reasonable, maybe even at a push towards the high £30ms. But going upwards towards £50 - £60m is fucking madness.

The problem is they're sat between two very different but equally important ambitions. 

 

This might be their best chance at a title. They sit four points behind a Real Madrid side preparing for a Champions League push next month. It's not unthinkable that a Sevilla side without that could overtake them. When you consider that it's hard to justify them taking anything under the clause because that 70m figure is a game changing sum. 

 

That said, they are a club run on selling players. This is the biggest offer they're ever likely to receive for Diego Carlos because he's almost 29-year-old and is just now getting major attention. The business textbook would say sell him, especially given how little difference there is in prize money for those top spots. That does remove the point of football, however - winning trophies - but as custodians of the club they have to think short and long term. 

 

All told, I think they've been unwilling sellers from minute one. If this offer had come in the summer it's different, but they're half way up the mountain now and things have changed. What felt acceptable in the summer now feels like the gambler wishing he'd put more on that horse. He's worth more to them than we feel comfortable paying because there's no promise he would secure us safety.

Tarkowski will still probably cost us a fortune like. We're in a position where we're overpaying regardless, whether it's for average players or great ones as we're clearly only capable of targeting established players.

Tarkowski is for free in Summer. Probably Burnley prefers to get 8-10 millions (And I think this is much) for him right now than nothing in 5 months

Allegedly they want £30m.

Then Tarkowski will relegate with Burnley in may and in june he will be free to sign with the team he want.

Burnley aren't selling Tarkowski to us unless we pay twice or three times what he is worth. He was absolutely immense against Arsenal. 

 

He could be the difference between them surviving or going down. Depends whether they already have admitted defeat staying up (can't see that). Gamble Tarkowski is a difference maker enough to keep them up and lose out on 10-20m or take the money as relegation insurance and spin the wheel they could still stay up. It would be a true hammer blow to supporters and team morale though if they let him leave now. They still have a chance at staying up.
