Sorry but aside from a poor end to the season where are you getting your info about Barca being in financial trouble or being desperate to buy Gini? You are making a load of wild assumptions and claiming them as facts.
I haven't suggested they're in financial trouble whatsoever
I'm saying in their fans eyes they need quick wins, fresh faces, new blood to distract from the current sh*t show
which is undeniable in its existence
So the thought we do them a favour for one of our players is simply laughable
I'm pretty sure our transfer team will be working on the same principles
You seem to think it's fine that we pay more for Thiago who has openly said he wants to leave than let Gini go who hasnt openly said he wants out right now.
They're a similar age with the same length of contract at two clubs who are in positions of strength now in football club terms at the top of the game currently
I find that odd that youd happily let Gini go for 15 and moan that we arent straight away paying 30 for Thiago
But again I haven't said Barca are struggling financially I said they need some quick wins with their fan base, which is undeniable as they have been protesting outside the Nou camp.
So if they need positive PR with their fans they should pay what we want, and that's not a cut price deal, whether Gini has a year left or not
