Not about the Fee it’s the wages.
With Morgan on 120k a WEEK at Man Ure, pretty sure AOC will be on at least 75% more than our highest paid player.
Would anyone on here take a 50% pay cut in the prime of life?
Footballing wise, when you look at our most effective style of play we have Mane terrorising defences with pace but also with a developing maturity, does AOC actually have that? Wasn’t Arse playing him in a DM role at times last season?
AOC and Mane as rotation players makes a great deal of sense, replacing Mane if he leaves with AOC IMHO would be a risk due to his injury record, and I am sure that the Black Box team has already spotted Mane’s replacement somewhere on the planet.
So no, he won’t come as a squad player and I would be worried by his Injury/Form record if he was a replacement on top end wages.
Now, a more important question is Tadic. Speedster & Trickster - that mix is important,Gaston could have been, Tadic could have been (IF he fvcking had a left foot or actually ever got a shot away)
Depending on the opposition we need THAT mix of options - sometimes Mane sometimes a trickster
So nice idea, not for me
