I like Gana, think he's very good at his role.  ...but realistically, he's 29 and we're going to need to replace him in the next 2-3 years anyway.  If we can turn him into £35m+ before then, we absolutely should.  The stated 20m is laughable though.

There will be replacements out there, Brands just needs to work his magic.  That Salzburg lad (Samassekou?) or Denis Zakaria spring to mind.

29 means 2-3 more seasons. If you want to move up you need players for 2-3 more seasons and age is irrelevant then, it’s all about what the player brings. Money is not the issue it once was for the club

Im all for building for the future, but that means over paying for players in their prime as well as introducing promising younger players and also keeping proven players at the club.

I hope not. Imagine what would happen against the bigger teams without him. Well no need to imagine, we’ve already saw.

Unless we can have a ready made replacement. Just not seeing many rumours up till now. Hoping Brands has something up his sleeve.

Yeh just imagine, we have never been humbled with him in the side 😉

On a more serious note, he would definitely need to be replaced. Schneiderlin isnt going to fill his boots and who knows when / if McCarthy will be ready.

Not getting into all that again haha pretty much everyone has said over and again... we do t think he’s world class, we just recognise the job he does here, and he does it well.

But your right, if we sell, we need to replace. He is the best we have in that position and should only be sold if we have a replacement in mind.

Youri Tielemans apparantly a target for Leicester. Should be on that!

A package deal with Djibril Sidibe.

Given the club's linked, he's probably out of our league already, but...Hope we're asking questions of the Sandro Tonali lad as well.  A young Italian DM, can't just let the Reds get him.
