Walker fee will be £55m plus add-ons


I'm hearing the Kyle Walker fee is £55 million (€62.41m - AUS$91.78m - US$71.26m) plus add-ons, which is massively over his CIES Football Observatory estimated transfer value of £35.25 million (€40m - AUS$58.98m - US$45.62m).

CIES keep a note of their estimated and actual prices that take into account contract length in their algorithm and have proven over time to be accurate. They demonstrate what a great deal we are getting and gives us money to reinvest in the market.

We need to shift Moussa Sissoko, but his wages are a stumbling block. Marseille want him, but they will not pay him the £95,000-a-week he wants. We may have to give him a payoff to get shot of him so he can accept a lower wage at another club.

Pau Lopez is training with Tottenham which all but conforms a deal will be going through. That leaves us needing a right-back, centre-back if Kevin Wimmer leaves, an attacking midfielder who can play anywhere across the three behind a lone striker and a striker.

Ricardo Pereira (right-back) and Ross Barkley (attacking midfield) look to be two of the positions covered with Juan Foyth being bought as a centre-back for the future. Will Cameron Carter-Vickers be featuring more than people expect this season?

He could be out number one back up to Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen in a back three.

  1. City have briefed the Manchester media - it's £45m with performance add-ons of up-to £5m. The transfer will not be a world record.

    1. It is face saving spin from City. That is all.

      There is literally no way Daniel Levy would hold all the cards, like he did, and then drop down from his original price so much. Everyone from the Spurs side are reporting it as above, £55 million plus add one. So someone is telling porkies. And for the reasons given, City will need to try to save some face after being held to ransom, and Levy held all the cards so why would he blink, I suspect it is City.

  2. So now we're down a key player and only have Trippier as RB, and he's not at Walkers level yet despite what some might say. Now anybody can charge what they like for any replacement we go for. Yeah really good bit of business that...

  3. Whatever the price (£45>£55 + add ons) MANC have bought a player, who because of his age, cannot possibly continue to retrieve situations by relying on his speed of recovery.
    We at THFC remember all the ‘brainfarts’ that marked his early seasons in the first team.
    If the gossip columns are correct and there was ’a difference of opinion with Poch’ and ‘her indoors wanted to move back North’ then DL has, once again, has excelled in the transfer market (given the circumstances).
    Still wish you the best though KW…

  4. Over here in Asia, it's reported as 45 million pounds plus 8 million pounds add-on for first year, and then 5 million pounds for the second year. Total sum is reported as 53 million pounds in all. No mention of any targets or appearances for the two years of add-ons... I presume that they are part of the deal. This is an excellent deal. While Kyle Walker is very athletic and strong physically, he isn't the brightest spark on the field. I think Kieran Trippier is a cleverer footballer. So no loss to us except to find another player to ensure that we aren't short when faced with injuries and fatigue... we're playing a full load again next season...
