7.5Million for two first team midfielders?
This bid is beyond a joke! If you are going to make a bid in January for two first team midfielders from another club at least make a decent bid FFS! First of all they cant be replaced mid season, secondly to give the opposing club a chance you should and WOULD be expected to pay way above the going rate for them.
They thought that by coming out in public with the bid they could rattle the players and get them to put in a transfer request, this is the sign of a desperate club that will pull all the tricks in the book to survive in the PL.
So I’ll make a deal with you Mr Meulensteen. You will get my blessing if you can stump up 25Million (yes remember its two first team midfielders in January you want) Sorry if we paid 11Million for Jarvis then you are going to damn well pay that for those two or as the Dutch say:-
