we bought him for 10 million euros and that was before he really hit the big time. Hes arguably far better than de gea was and united paid a supposed 17 million pounds for him. with barca interested i dont think 30 mill euros is out of the question. unbelievably good for a goalie so young. might get 15 years of service out of him
ofcourse, thats all under the assumption that we would sell him. And honestly, i think it would be stupid if we do. Player like that comes along like that only once in a looooong ass time and hopefully we can keep him happy and transition him to the first team
though personally id like to see him continue his development, maybe in the premier league so he can adjust to the more physical style and meeting crosses. but not so long that he forgets who paid for him
If we don't sell him, he'll walk for free. He's not signing an extension here.
i know how talented courtois is. i was pumping him up massively last season a few games in. it's just that buffon is the only guy to cost a club more than 20 mil (32 mil), the next is de gea at 18 mil. keepers just don't tend to go for much. you be 15-17 mil i reckon, but i dont think he'll be sold anyways
and i didnt see the watford game, it wasnt televised anywhere.
