2. We didn't give a flying fuck how well Pacheco got on in Spain and didn't watch any of his matches.
it's snobbery. pure and simple. if michu was english he would've gone for close to 10x the amount and wouldnt have close to the same amount of skills. but because he played for a small club like rayo, it most likely would've been palmed off as a 'fluke' or 'someone had to score them'. i'd love if city went and took a punt on these kind of guys. just imagine how many cheap release clauses there are for players at clubs considered to be the lower end of prestige, and so many willing to sell cheap due to financial problems. hell, 17.5 mil is considered cheap for isco.
