I’d love him to stay Jack.

I was one of those supporting him a year or so ago when others wanted him out or sold, and that was before the disciplinary issue became big.

My concern is his long stated ambition to go to England Jack.
Agreed, It'll be a sad day when he goes and like you I'd like him to stay and I think if he goes 20 million is the starting price,because it may we'll cost us to find an adequate replacement. I think he's at the right club at th right time and he won't learn from anyone better than the gaffer and JD.

Agree Jack.

He may regret moving on if he does. We are a special football club ;)

We might not have any choice. If the buyout fee in his contract is £20 million then that’s all we will get and when he goes will be up to him.

I cant see the board accepting 20 million in January! To win the league we need him, if theres a 20 million bid in January, we'll get that of not more in the summer!

This January hes almost priceless

Twenty million will be a great piece of business and I cant see the board turning it down they already mentioned that was the price they would take at ORSA.
Hard to negotiate a higher price when we have already stated how much we are willing to take.

If a £20m bid comes in Morelos could down tools, nothing worse than an unhappy player.

The boy came from nothing and could potentially get a huge signing on fee and a weekly wage near £100k - no brainer.

Eh? He’s gotten even better since then so they can easily ask for more on the basis of that alone. We’re not tied to accepting £20m just because of comments Robertson made 8 or 9 months ago.

Given his quality and the rapid rate at which he’s progressing and the fact it’s Premier League clubs, £20m isn’t enough. McBurnie just transferred for £20m and he’s not a fraction of the player Morelos is.

It's not a great peice of business if it severely effects our chances of winning the league! If hes worth 20 the now, he'll be worth at least that come the summer

Twenty million is not a lot in Premiership terms I agree but we have kinda showed our hand our hope has to be a few clubs interested so we get a bidding war going.

No one may even bid in January it could just be more speculation. I honestly do think if Palace comes up with 20 million he will be their player.

Not necessarily. We don’t have to accept any offer we don’t want to. With the way Morelos is playing teams will want him and will likely offer more until they get their man. A bidding war helps of course.

But yeah I’d be devastated with £20m in January.

He's better than Ayew so wouldn't be shocked at Palace going for him.

Sadly no way our board knock back big money deal. If Palace are comfortable in Jan then maybe try do a deal where we keep him on loan till end of season and then sell him for 15 million plus an add-on in any future fee.

Unless Gerrard has someone lined up to replace him as he must know he won't be long term

I don't see us punting Alfie in Jan, even for £20m. If he's worth that in Jan, he'll be worth that in the summer.

Why would DK push the boat out and sanction the £7m for Kent, if we were going to sell our top striker mid season?

We'll get bids, we'll knock them back. Alfie will go in a huff, but luckily we have a winter break for him to sulk. He'll come back out of it, finish top goal scorer as we win the treble. We punt him for £30m in the summer and reinvest the lot... that's how i see it (hope for it) going!!

If a bid of 20+ million in January he’s away like it or not. The board can’t refuse an offer like that for a player we bought for 1 million pounds. He could go on and break his leg a month later there is no sure thing in football. Also it is pretty well known Alfie has been assured if we get an acceptable offer from a top 5 league he will be allowed to go to pull that out from under him would do more damage than good.

Is there a reason why we are no longer cutting and pasting and instead leaving a link for these rhats? Genuine question as it used to be not on posting links. What changed?

Yes they can. The objective is to win the league and we’re not desperate for the money right now so if they no longer deem £20m suitable (and it’s really not) then they can say no thanks. The fact we bought him for £1m has no bearing whatsoever on what amount we should or shouldn’t accept by the way.

There will be a price in mind here and if a club reaches it. Alfie will push for the move and make it happen. Sadly he and his agent will know what that cap is. Anything above that then it will be he and his agent coining it in as signing on fees.

I reckon that because he has now cleared up his disciplinary record we will need to brace ourselves for some very tempting offers.

Also a lot will depend on how many goals he scores in Europe and in our next game against the scum.

On the bright side though I really can't see our board caving in for any less than £20M+ and only during the early days of the winter break, leaving us enough time to try and get some sort of replacement in.

If that's the case then I hope Ross Wilson is half as good as everyone thinks he is!
