Alisson was coming regardless
The club nor the manager would be as knee jerk after a couple of pre season games
Not sure thats true. The rhetoric at the time was that we had to stand by Karius and that we weren't that keen to spend that much on a keeper.
Not saying the Fekir deal fell through because we needed a keeper or that we haven't been tracking Allison for a long time.
But I don't think the money is there for both, I reckon the knee put us off, we're not interested in anyone else if we cant have Fekir so we've decided to spend that instead on a keeper.
We've certainly never spent such huge sums of money like that in the past and we've already spent a good amount this window.
There's no precident for a net spend as big as 200 million so cant see that happening.
Another 60/70 million on top of what we have now would be lovely from my POV but I don't think its on Fenways to do list.
For the record not having a go at FSG here. I'm happy with the window and believe this squad should be in the argument for all the trophies next season.
Just think the money has a dried out now and it will be merely a question of recouping some of that back with selling some of the fringe squad.
