    Clickbait Utd now in for Freeman. Only clubs with large fanbases can be mentioned.

      you'd hope so. i don't want freeman to leave as he's a key source of assists and brings experience to our attack but if the right offer came in and we had a replacement lined up then why not?

      i like marcus maddison from peterbrough and apparently his release clause is only a million, he'd be a good replacement

        My point being a player is only worth what another club are willing to pay for him. Smithies was valued by most on here,including myself at about £6 million but we only got half that because that's all Cardiff would pay. Freeman is also worth around £6 million but if Cardiff or Villa or Rotherham for that matter offered £3 million I think the club would sell him for that amount
        I agree, and not least because £3m still represents a big profit for us. We only paid, what, £300-350k?
        That said, I still think we should hold out for more than that or, better yet, not sell at all.

          You would hope the board realise that we are 2 to 3 players short going into the season this weekend. We cannot bail ourselves out in January like in previous years. Does anyone think.we will go with what we have right now for the season?

            I don't think we will sign anyone before Saturday, but I'm pretty sure we can get loans in until the end of August so we would be stupid not to, especially with the embargo in January. We have a good enough mid-table squad imo, but it's a thin one, and 2 or 3 injuries could see us in big trouble.

              Again we must consider whether £3m is the release clause in his contract in which all interested clubs will make that bid and its up to the player who he wants to join.

              Im starting to think this may be a policy of ours, to sign players on wages they can be bettered elsewhere, but with releases clauses so they can get a better than normal when they move on. I think I heard one club saying plsayers can have a standard wage now, or less with a low release clause. This gives players a shop window by playing for the club if they think their capable of playing at a higher standard in the future. Perhaps this is the route we're taking to get a squad within our budget.

                  That's good news, let's hope we stick to that.

                    Loosing Freeman is not the end of the world as Eze plays the same position.

                      I don't get the bidding war thing. If a club makes an offer and we accept it, I don't think we can then go back and say we want more because someone else has offered more. All we can do is accept the higher bid aswell. I don't see why any club would offer more once we have accepted a bid anyway. We can't decide to only sell to the highest bidder as, ultimately, it's up to the player to decide which club to go to if there's a choice. Or am I misunderstanding something?

                        Well we haven't accepted a bid from any club have we ??
                        if this is right we open to any offer from any club that might out bid any other interested club

                          That's fine if the bids come in thick and fast but I suspect that as soon as we receive a bid that is acceptable we will accept it.

                            You mean like buying a house?. Until contracts are signed nothing is sacred.

                              I donít. I see it Like this. We need to find 1.7million quid per season to pay the fine. Weíve already sold smithies. Mclaren has said we donít need to sell. Why would we accept the first bid we get? Weíve got a bill to pay for sure but letís be honest itís not astronomical and we shouldnít be offloading our better players for peanuts to pay this fine. Weíve just got to be sensible thatís all

                                The owners are taking care of the fine. The club have nothing to pay.
