I think we pay him with Eriksen salary. FIFA paid Eriksen salary then we seek replacement with Eriksen salary, then Marotta see Hakan as best replacement.Agree with the rest, but not this. Free transfer fee but his salary is double that of "normal" players.
10m+ amortization is equivalent to 20m transfer fee + 6m gross or such. Any other Serie A teams bought their midfielders for cheaper last Mercato, Anguissa, Koopmeiners, Torreira from top of my head for a fraction. Midfielders are everywhere and cheap.
We didn't have a cash flow issue anymore after selling Hakimi and Lukaku. We could choose. We just chose the wrong one. Should not have broken the salary cap for a bang-average player.
The other reason maybe we can weaken our rival too.
I don't know other free midfielders better than Hakan in that transfer window. Wijnadum already to PSG. Who the others? Any idea?
