More transfer rumours

Lingard would be fine on a free so long as he isn’t going for silly wages. He’s basically a budget Paqueta, so we’ll have more money to splurge on an RW and a Striker.

He will be wanting silly wages though. That's why West Ham are walking away.

In an ideal world - Broja on loan with option to buy, Lingard in on a reasonable wage (<100k, with good bonuses) and then we could spend on a CM.

Nature of the beast when you’re a free transfer though. Can’t see anyone offering more than 100k though, unless Everton are truly desperate.

What are silly wages for an out of contract player?

 

If we give him a hefty signing on fee, wages can be kept low.

Re Broja, 9 in 38 isn't amazing, but I think only 23 of those were starts which looks a lot better, especially for his age.

 

I noticed he was born the day before 9/11 :lol: We're so old.

Lingard is essentially a slightly more productive Almiron. If he was our answer to the right wing, it would be incredibly disappointing.

Especially as he isn’t a RW

Aye, he's not a winger and he's not good enough to play through the middle. I'm sure its nonsense though.

Lingard can play in 3 positions and is a good player. If it means being allowed to sell Murphy or Almiron to raise more funds, then its a good decision.

 

Mind you, I think he thought PSG etc would come calling for him on a free. Not Everton and West Ham [emoji38]

He can play on the wing if he’s played out of position but he most definitely isn’t a RW

That's very far from an ideal world

So he was meant to be ASMs replacement in Jan then? Howe wasnt going to play at him CM.

No he was going to play RW, but he isn’t a winger and never has been.

We tried to sign Ekitike for around £25 million and now we're looking at Broja at a similar fee. Right wingers linked have included, Diaby, Harrison and Sarr. You're talking an outlay there of at least £50 million.

 

Either journos are deliberately being briefed to underplay the our spend or (less likely) it's an FFP budget i.e Botman's fee sbd wages would be calculated over a five year period.
