No chance getting 15 mill for him. Would be nice though
Not now we wont. He is potentially a player worth double that.......or half that. Because the upside is so great and he is at his lowest value we will keep him for another year.

He will leave in 12 months after a;
Great season = 30m
Average season = 8m

Actually felt Leicester made the most sense on a lot of levels and ideally that’s where he would end up.
Rennes would be a means to an end for him and if it for some reason didn’t work out for him there he wouldn’t be in a great position.

Not a chance will we sell at £8 million, no matter how his season went. He's a proven goalscorer at European level so we'd be looking at £15 million at least

MU mate is the initials he’s very well known and a more than decent bear,in fact I’d say one of the best on here imo.

If we do sell Alfie,Jones and one other we should still raise at least twenty million quid.

Which in the current climate could stretch quite far you’d like to think.
Aw, know who you’re talking about. Yeah, if he’s said it then it can probably be trusted.

When you factor in that you’re sharing a board with people who would have happily replaced Morelos with Jason Cummings it lessens the shock of some of the shite you read on here.
It’s a very valid point. They’re telling us about the market condition for football clubs now too, despite the fact no monetary transfers have really taken place since covid-19 and no one truly knows the financial position of most clubs. I’m sure that’ll be the same experts who only 2 months ago were telling us we probably wouldn’t see any form of football until 2021.

On the flip side the fact we managed to renegotiate the Hagi fee from 4.3 million to 3 might be seen as a fair indicator.
To suggest that Covid won't have a serious negative effect on transfer fees would be extremely naive I'd suggest in the main.

I’m positive I seen an article saying teams in the top five leagues won’t suffer much when it comes to being able to pay transfer fees

In my view, from his performances in the first half of the season, and particularly in Europe, Morelos is worth at least £20m to an English club of the right standing.

The physical and technical quality of Alfredo should not be underestimated.

One thing, in particular, to note is that he is still a young player who, in my opinion, has plenty of scope for improvement. He is very good now, but he could be even better with time and hard work.

Be careful what you wish for fellow Bears. Do we really want to enter one of the most important seasons in years bedding in a new striker? Especially after our struggles in front of goal in recent years.

I think we should be looking to supplement Alfredo, not get rid of him.
yes we do.

the one we have scores goals up until Xmas and then falls apart and has done so for 3 years.
We need to sell him and get a player who can last a whole season and maintain his form.

No ones suggesting that, but it’s not going to hit a lot of clubs anywhere near as hard as it’ll hit others. Watch as the EPL’s top sides carry on throwing silly money around.

Of course they will,probably over a hundred million on one player-but maybe not the hundreds of millions it might take to buy say,an Mbappe.
It just won't be as noticeable in the mad world of the EPL imo.

Do you have any suggestions mate?

I fancy this window will be pretty barren, with a lot of players under contract content to stay where they are.

I don’t think it’s a question of wanting him gone, for most at least. It’s just that he’s not made much secret of his desire to move on at some point and, if he’s going, we’d rather get a decent return and look to the future.
I get that, but maybe this isn’t the correct time. Especially if we are going to get under market value for him in present circumstances.

Even if Rennes had that money Alfie has his sights set higher and I am sure he would not leave Rangers for Rennes.. Spurs, Leicester or even a top ten Spanish team would probably suit him but doubt he would go to Rennes.

It’s difficult to argue against that. There is no guarantee next season will be any different.

Last term was the most bipolar yet from Morelos - absolutely sensational up until the New Year, then looked like he’d rather be anywhere else after it.

It would be folly to ignore that, but we might find ourselves in a position where we have no choice.

He’d be sitting on the bench at spurs and Leicester though so a move to Rennes would be better for his career.

I think he’s for the off and unless there are a few clubs interested someone is going to get a bargain,Competition for him is the only chance of getting decent money for him especially with what has happened over the last 3 months.

This is the level of club I expect to be interested just now. Smaller, but have smart recruitment teams which make them punch above their weight.

Nobody is paying big, big money when he is as unreliable as he currently is.

I do think we’d take £15m. Unsure if I personally would as our recruitment is all over the place tbh.
