Gone are the days when footballers played for the love of the game and showed loyalty to the club they played for. There are exceptions but they are all commodities that are bought and sold bu businessmen.
Sometimes I wish the so called dark days of the 70's & 80's would return
Le10 Sport on Wednesday go out of their way to confirm interest on their website for Richarlison , explaining PSG are looking at the Everton forward as they prepare for the exit of Julian Draxler as well as potentially Angel Di Maria’s.
Paris Saint-Germain are said to have enquired about the amounts the Toffees would want for their star, and the answer they allegedly got was €75m.
These days football is a business, a very big one.
Whilst we on the Forum love certain players; we have realise that it IS a business and Moshiri is a business man as are probably all of the board.
Each and every one of them is in it for the money - they all want to increase their wealth; so if somebody else offers a lot more than we paid for a player then it's good business to sell that player regardless.
The only consideration would be if that player is in the overall plans for next season or the following seasons and also whether that player has potential to make vast improvements and therefore the selling price and the profit goes up.
Every player knows that and that's why they all try to earn as much as they can at each club they sign a contract for. It may sound disgusting to us but that's the life of a footballer, a manager and a board member.
We all go to the match to enjoy the game, meet friends and generally have a social day out.
If we sell him it's a sign we have no intention of building a squad and just in it to make a profit on signings.
