That’s a silly take
The club did it’s due diligence. Caecido said he was interested in joining us that’s why we bid in the first place
We will never know of course but the reports were that we got assurances from one of his “representatives” that he would join us.
What I believe that really means is, his agent wanted a much higher fee and knew if we bid high, Chelsea would come in ultimately higher and the agents cut would be huge.
So we got played a bit and now we’ve ended up with no one (at this time). So much for JWH coming over to go toe to toe with Boehly. So much for FFP meaning anything whatsoever.
Praying that our transfer people have some sort of plan that actually involves buying a couple players and not an excuse we’ve all heard before “we tried but we just couldn’t get the deal done, when Thiago and Bajcetic are healthy they will be like new signings”
That one point doesn’t feel as ok now as it did a few hours ago.
