Reports coming out today that Crystal Palace are refusing to budge in their £70mil valuation of AWB. If this is true I hope we walk away and pursue players with a more realistic valuation.

Reports came out yesterday that they’d accept £50m up front. Day before it was a different story.

Perhaps transfers take a bit of time to negotiate, and are mostly boring and technical. But media need clicks, so they publish flashy speculative unsupported stories to grab your attention.

Would it make a difference if say it was 50m + 20m in performance based fees?

Danny I posted this because Ed002 had told us about Palace's 70mil valuation but the reports coming out of 50mil etc were contradictory.

But it seems like as always Ed002 was right and the 50mil stories were perhaps someone from United or part of his representatives briefing the media in hope of concluding the deal at that price rather than expectation.

I say pay up. We are still offering 2014 money in 2019.

I watched the first half of England U21 game and AWB looked nothing like a £50 plus M player.

Don't pay attention to it, the papers never actually know what is going on with the finances in football. Think about it, in who's interest would it be to leak that information? And if it's in their interest then how can you be sure its accurate?

Football clubs don't want it public knowledge how much they pay for a player, or how much they got paid as it will likely push up asking prices for the players they target to replace the sold player.

Agents won't want it leaked as they get paid a percentage and could do without the bad press, plus not all are doing things strictly legally and they won't want it public knowledge how much they earn.

The players won't want it leaked as it puts pressure on them.

People involved in the deal are unlikely to leak it as it could put their involvement in future deals at jeopardy.

Ergo the press won't ever have accurate figures on how much the club paid in transfer fee, in agents fees or in wages (this could be found out at a later date if the club publishes accounts, but then there are ways around that if the club wants) .

Don't worry about the money, if the club feel they can afford it and they feel he is the right player they will pay it. It's not like we have financially crazy owners who will gamble the clubs future by spending more than they can afford. They are businessmen who want to make a profit and earn themselves money.
