When we signed Carroll I thought we had been seriously tucked up but the prices being touted around for players is just ridiculous. Bale 80Million!, Suarez 50Million and when Benteke hadn’t signed his contract his price tag was 30Million.
When you look at these fees we have surely got a bargain! Look at it another way. Lets say Carroll has a blinder next season, if he scores 15+ goals his worth will go up to 20Million and if he scores 20+ goals his worth will be well above the 20Million.
He is on a huge contract so if we were to sell and Andy had a couple of great seasons with us we stand to make a serious amount of money on this fella the way the prices are going right now!
