Anybody here with a background in finance could give us his opinion about the Bellingham situation? The premise to my question is that we know that LFC, under FSG, is willing to spend big when the potential and immediate benefit is extremely high (VVD and Alisson come to mind). Some would even say that this is only partially true and that big spending has to be offset by selling players (Coutinho comes to mind). However, what we know is that under FSG, Liverpool will not enter a big money race for any player they dont consider pivotal and that even when the player is indeed pivotal, there is a point (a sum) at which we get out of the race and look for other targets.
My question is: considering Bellingham might go for a sum that is well over 100m, is it plausible that FSG are willing to spend big on him and just include that money in the price tag they put on the club, if not raise it by 200m or 300m when they eventually sell?
My logic here is that I know that 120m sounds like pennies when talking about a multi-billion deal, but isn't a big ''deal sweetener'' for anybody looking to buy a football club when that club just added what a lot of people describe as a ''generational talent'' to it's roster? A player that will, no doubt, bring a lot on the pitch, but bring just as much, if not more, on the commercial side of things. This sounds like the type of business FSG likes to do. Invest 120m, recoup 200m or 300m in the form of an improved selling price for the club. But then again, I'm not somebody with a finance/business background so I could be wrong.
