If it’s true that we are going to have to sell before we buy, maybe we should be looking at the prices on some of our players’ heads.
That’s the opinion of Niko Kranjcar anyway who states that he is ‘shocked’ at the £10m transfer fee that Tottenham are looking for.
“I’m shocked about the transfer fee set for me. It’s a price that cools down everybody who is interested,” Niko told the press back in Croatia,
“It doesn’t matter if the price is in pounds or euros, a fee between 10 million and 15 million is just too much for everybody.
“If Tottenham would be happy with €6.7 million, we could all be happy. But if they keep asking for so much money no one will buy me.
There have been lots of reports of interested from Serie A and beyond, a fact that Niko is well aware of,
“I know that Dynamo Kiev were interested in buying me, but when they were told about my asking price talks just stopped, he added.”
Is £10m a fair price or, if we are going to sell, should we be prepared to drop and move on?
