And then every player signing a new contract wants a bonus, surely thats a good reason not to be doing it?

If he wants to go there for the love of the game so be it, but I really doubt it. 140k a week is more than enough to offer, if he wants more than that then he can walk and we'll bring someone else into the squad who wants to spot. That guy is already on our books and killing it at the udders.

Players already get bonuses for signing back on, contracts are filled with all kinds of attainable bonuses for signing new deals or staying for certain periods of time, also no reason why other players would even know what is being discussed.

Fair enough, in my understanding signing on bonuses/fees are usually lager but I could be wrong.

Though he's a nice footballer he's not going to be too hard to replace.

Normally signing on fees would be but they aren't some massive amount, clubs go for free agents because they are saving a transfer fee, unless you're a top 20 player in the world the sign on will be nowhere near what the transfer fee would be.

Feel like teams realize 2 years out from a contract expiring if there's no chance of the player resigning, do everything you can to sell while he has market value.

But seems to be way more players just wanting to go to free agency now so to speak.

A lot of that would be covid related, loss of earnings or whatever so happy to run down the contract and get a bigger payday.

Pros
-good on the ball
-reads the play well
-good defensively

Cons
-a bit soft
-confidence easily rattled

I'd prefer to keep him but it looks like he's walking. Barcelona seems likeliest at this stage.

This photo is honestly the first time I’ve seen what he looks like. Shows my ignorance/non attention to the PL.

I’ve always had a picture of Geelong Cats Christensen in my head

He was on loan at monchengladbach for a couple of seasons and did really well a few years back.

You didn't watch the UCL final?

I think it is a loan being discussed.

That’d be an interesting one. Is he an 8 or a 10?

As an 8, he’d be better than Dahoud but I wouldn’t want him to replace Dahoud in the starting lineup.

As a 10, he’d fit well in the centre, but Reus is spending a fair bit of time there given Malen and Hazard are playing wings.

He played his best football at Ajax as a 10/ 2nd striker. He can play as an 8 though.

What is it, one goal in the league in the last two months?
Only Salah, Jota and Vardy have more goals than Sadio in the Premier League. I dont know what you want him to do outside of suddenly become Lionel Messi. He's on track for another 20-25 goal season.

That's not the question I asked.
