In Topic: West Ham bid for Long rejected?

Why squeeze 6m? If west ham thinks he is an epl player then they should buy him at that value. This isnt a flip. This is a finish product who could last them for 4 years. They need someone who can get the job done now.

If west ham wants to be an amateur club then they should stop wasting people's time, not buy epl type of players and get demoted.

 

I just don't see lower table teams spending more than that on a CB, but I could be wrong. So few teams actually bought center backs in the Premier League this year its almost tough to get a "going rate" but there were a few splashes of $12M-$15M with the rest in the $4M-$6M range.

Of course we want the team to do more but keep this in mind: The fact that we were running away with that game in Chester untill he got hurt and then everything went straight to hell wasn't a coincidence.

 

Then Kaku too... We were never winning MLS Cup last year but I fully believe we at least leave Philly with the W if those two don't get hurt.

I was surprised we hadn't heard more about interest in Long this winter, but with multiple teams still interested I can't see how Red Bull doesn't end up with an offer they're ultimately happy with.

5m for long? No way. He is a USMNT starting CB and can play in the premier league. He is at least worth 9 -12m. 5m would be reasonable if he was 29.

 

Not too much of a difference between 27 and 29 when it comes to the transfer fee, they're both past the age where you'd expect to be able to flip the player down the line. Long would have to absolutely kill it his first season to garner enough interest from higher table EPL teams for West Ham to ever make a profit on him. I think they can squeeze $6M, I'd be really surprised to see any more than that.

Does anybody know why Haland did not go to Leipzig? Instead he goes to Dortmund who are directly competing with Leipzig in the Bundesliga. And it's not like Dortmund came with a huge offer. I find it very odd. 

 

Cause RBNY fans are wrong about the entire Red Bull organization just being a series of farm teams for Leipzig?
