The french league is abysmal. As far as a league is concerned it's about as competitive as the SPL. One oil rich team leading a poor league doesn't make said league any better. And I wouldn't be surprised to see us pay big money on the right player even though we are building a stadium as we are still looking to have the stadium funded with sponsorship money and naming rights.VDV went at a knockdown price and so did Eriksen... Martinez or Lacazette won't. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
the French league is abysmal? guess we should go ahead and sign PSG's best players too. Not like Lacazette didn't already fire Lyon to the CL last year. The fact that the league is poor (not abysmal) also doesn't address the fact that bigger clubs than ours will be in for him who are regularly in the CL and can offer higher wages
So are we going to bench Kane for this new 30m+ striker you say isn't out of our range or are we signing this 30m striker for the bench? Assuming Levy even wants to spend that much on a striker considering what happened last time. Atletico paid Martinez release clause of 35m and Martinez said he wouldn't have gone to a non CL team too, so no it wasn't him not suiting Poch, we wouldn't have got him either way.
Seems pretty realistic considering we have to pay off our new stadium too
To think Martinez and Lacazette are out of our range is ridiculous though. We've signed players "out of our reach" before and we'll do it again, and again, and again. That's the nature of this business. Teams do it all the fucking time.
