Him and Trippier for less than a million I think.

Sure we lost Trippier for less than his real value. But both were incredible signings even if we get next to nothing transfer wise for them.
And Tripps top of La Liga now too!

I don't think it's mainly about money for Tarks. He simply wants to progress his career, which realistically means he has to move on. Agree he’ll move on, just think he might sign a new contract if offered a decent one by the new owners (sure there’s plenty of ways to incentivise that), hopefully s...
