But late bloomer based on what ?But Vecino is a special type of player, he's a late bloomer. His best years are yet to come. I think that his prime will be for 2,3 years(34years I think will be his peak) .
Here we have the perfect explanation why we might extend Vecino. If he agrees renewal by maybe lowering salary and definitely accepting bench role, we gonna renew him.You forget that we renewed useless trash like D'Ambrosio and fucking KOLAROV, and actively tried to renew Ashley Young as well. I'm honestly so grateful to him for rejecting our contract offer in favor of returning to Aston Villa. Thank you, Ashley, for having sense and decency, when we had none.
Vecino will almost certainly renew. Why? Because it's the cheapest possible option. We can't afford to buy players for shit, and while signing free agents has always been notoriously expensive, recently it's become a outright farce. Despite the fact we are already paying simply obscene salaries for the likes of Sanchez, Vidal, Dzeko and Calhanoglu, management will not want to add further big salaries to the wage bill.
Simply put: a yearly gross amount of €4-5m on Vecino's salary is smaller than a transfer fee (plus wages of course) for a new player, and also smaller than the big wages that a free agent will demand.
Vecino has been surprisingly okay this season and offers a different kind of energy. As long as he is not a guaranteed starter, I have no issue to have him around until he finishes his contract.
Lol we keep falling for this. Next week FIF will go back to trashing him again.
I get that, but even if his annual price was 1 Euro, Vecino is not a player that belongs here. We need to look beyond the financials and consider: can Vecino deputize for any of our starting midfielders in any capacity beyond a 10 minute cameo when the game is already won? If the answer is "no" then you'd rather spend those extra millions on getting a player who can, because God help us if Barella/Brozo get injured.Vecino being here and possibly staying after this season has everything to do with our financial situation. If the management sees they can't sign equivalent player for cheaper annual price or better player with the same annual price, I guess Vecino will stay
I think that was the plan with Nandez, but that fell through - both because we're cheap and because Giulini is a prick.And my thesis was exactly that. If management can replace Vecino with the same annual cost but getting better quality, they will do so. What I'm saying is that it's probably not so easy. No matter how much you people hate Vecino. He's still an Uruguay NT starter basically. Maybe there is something in his game people do not appreciate but the coaches do?
