How much would you sell Borna Barišić for?

Yep the fee they are saying although a massive profit is not what I would term "silly money" for a Serbian international in great form so I don't think we would have said to them what we would accept.
We are in a no lose situation in that we want him to stay,he is not pushing for a move and we can just keep knocking back offers we are not happy with until possibly they reach a figure we would find hard to turn down.

I know this is our model with the buy low and sell high where we can which is fine,but we are in with as good a chance as we have had in so many years of winning the league so if that figure was true I would not be overly happy.
Serbian????

His CV and form are impressive. I'd be expecting well over £20M, significantly more in January. If we don't set a Scottish record in selling him this month, although obviously I don't want to sell personally, then our business is poor. I've seen £12M-£15M quoted by some, if that's all we get I won't be impressed.

After Alfredo he's our biggest asset.

Selling Barisic in this window would be a catastrophic mistake. Him and Kent give us a very strong left side. He is paramount to us this season and a key part to us progressing in the future.

Would be raging if we let him go. Thought we were offering him a new deal anyway?

Every other club in Europe has to overpay in the January window. If we sell one of our best players for under our valuation let alone a crazy figure, we deserve everything we get.

he might take umbrage at being described as Serbian!

It would be absolute madness to sell him in January and equal madness to sell for anything less than £20m.
 

Danger Zone

Just the tip...
Why? Because he is better, end of story.

And there is actually only 4 and a half years of age difference, not 6 or 7.
Okay 4 and a half years. Ones younger and has shown greater consistency, so you’re not quite in touch with the reality of the transfer market of you think we will command a similar fee. And that’s in the reality in spite of the fact Borna is playing better now than KT ever did.

If they sold Tierney for 20+ we should not accept anything less, age apart borna is twice the player and offers so much going forward and from set peices. Guys established internationalist and one our most important players this season.

I'll admit I've never seen much of Tierney, but for Celtic to get the sort of fee they did for him, Arsenal must have felt he'd shown the sort of potential that will see him develop into another Andy Robertson, someone they can double or triple their outlay on in a few years, and he must have been showing that potential at a level at least as impressive as Barisic has this season for a good couple of seasons beforehand.

I'd be very surprised if that was the case.

The criticisms against Borna (as far as playing for Rangers goes) will be that he's only really displayed that kind of ability for six months, and at 27 he has less years left to turn a profit for any potential buyer than Tierney.

On the flip side, he's entering his peak years now so any club willing to take a punt on him is likely to get his very best. And as if it hasn't already been said, he's the first choice left back for the World Cup runners-up, a country ranked 44 places above Scotland in the FIFA rankings.

We won't sell him this month, but if he continues in the form he's been in this season and has a good Euros for his country in the summer, the very least Rangers should be asking for is £20m.

It’s difficult for us as fans to see the business side of Rangers.
We have been told we need to find funds to see out the season. We get £3 million for winning the league but could get £8 million profit on a player.

I don’t want to see Barisic leave but my business head also tells me I don’t want to see Rangers knock back money we potentially can’t afford to.
We can't afford to sell our best players half through a season when we have finally got ourselves in the position where winning the league is in our hands. That is and should be the priority.

And besides in today's market £10 is a massive undervaluation.

He's a £15m + player and if he sustains his form and shows well at the Euros you can add another £5m to that.

Don't sell just now he's too important and we need a summer to readjust our team if he's to leave

It's gonna sound crass but not £20mil not £50mil, you cannot put a price on this title!
Whatever is on offer just now would not allow us to get a like-for-like left back. Borna is in top form and is integral in our push for the title.
There is a no doubt a figure that, if offered, the club could not refuse. I just hope that figure is not offered as I would hate to see Borna leave in this window.

The price mentioned now, and the price after we win the league,and he comes back after the internationals with his country,will be substantially varied i.m.o.

It isn't old but many clubs pay extra for potential which is why the Taigs got the fee they did for their left back and why they got a good fee for Dembele Borna is in his prime and has no further resale value if he were to go to Roma and play for a few years
In two year an international left back under thirty would still command a really good fee.

Arsenal and Roma do not buy players to turn a profit. They buy players to be successful.

The fact it’s January and we are in a very unique league season, they can either pay £18m or fvck off. Get him on a new deal so we are in a great negotiation position after the Euros where he hopefully shines

I realise any player is only worth what another team is willing to pay for them, but if a few times capped for Scotland biscuit hips is worth anywhere near the £25 million that he reportedly went for, then the bidding for the 1st choice Croatian left back should be starting there.

He's first pick for the World Cup finalists, attracting attention from big name teams in the top leagues in Europe, is in his prime with many years left at the top of his career. Anything short of £20-25 million would be criminal.

Who knows? We've still to see a club bid serious money for a Rangers player, never mind have a bid accepted, and combined with the farcical amount of money being bandied about in England, it makes a lot of these evaluations essentially worthless.

It seems to be the case that English clubs aren't interested unless there's been prolonged success over a number of years. We've still to win a trophy.

Arsenal will take a huge hit on Tierney and he'll be back at the filth within 2 years.

Don’t get selling him at all. As many have said, waiting till after the euros makes a lot more sense, as does keeping our best players in a position where we have no cover.

Comparative valuations are also significant too. For all that the Tierney transfer was weird, the value was £25mill for an injured left back who may never play again and who was not any better than Borna. I’ve no idea of their comparative stats but let’s use the Morelos vs Dembele one. Tierney was always shite against us even when we were shit. While Borna just ripped them a new one.
