Barkley to Spurs £40m


TRANSFER TALK


Good win today ✌ happy with my goal & physical condition 🚀🚀

Ross Barkley training yesterday

England midfielder and Tottenham target Ross Barkley has been left out of the Everton pre-season tour to Tanzania.

From what I have heard the 23-year-old (24 next June) is joining us for £40 million (€45.16m - AUS$67.22m - US$51.58m) which in my view is way overpriced for a player with just a year left on his contract. Ronald Koeman wants to buy Gylfi Sigurdsson and is willing to meet the £50 million (€56.45m - AUS$84.03m - US$64.47m) valuation Swansea City have placed on him.

They play their first game against Kenya’s Gor Mahia on Thursday and while new signings Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane and Davy Klaasen might be involved, Ross Barkley won't. Officially he is undergoing treatment for a groin injury, convenient these pre-season injuries, Bale had one remember.

The picture above shows him at training on Monday.

Barkley had a good season for Everton last season. He created the most chances (84), had the most completed take-ons (67) and the most assists (8) for them.

  1. If you think that Levy is going to pay 40 million quid for a player with one year left on his contract, who is not even worth 40 million period, then you are severely mistaken.

    The figure that I have heard is 20 million, which sounds about right. However, based on form, you can expect Levy to screw Everton around, change the terms at the last minute, and generally negotiate his gonads off before we eventually get Barkley on a deadline day deal for about 500,000 less than was agreed!

    2. going on recent form i'd expect Levy to do all of that. mis-judge the market and situation and miss out on him altogether

  2. Don't need him, don't want him. Another Sissoko

  3. There's no way we will pay £40m for a player that is in his last year of his contract. Whoever we are going to sign we'd be smart getting it done soon, give the players time to settle, we seem to make that same mistake year in year out.

  7. As an Evertonian I don't see Barkley getting anywhere near spurs sstarting 11. In fact he doesn'tget Iin any 1st 11 that finished above us!
    He's worth 25m max but if we get 40m snap anyone's hand off. He'll end up at Newcastle or West Ham imo.

  8. Really want Barkley, but 40m is laughable with a year left.

  9. An awful lot of football fans in general are way off the mark with their assessment of transfer fees this summer. The landscape has changed, what was £20m 18 months ago is know £40m-£50m (hence the price Sigurdsson is quoted as going to cost & lets face it,is Kevin Wimmer worth the quoted £20m !!!). They are ridiculous fees and these players aren't 'worth' those figures but those are the figures they will be going for since the new TV deal came into play. So anyone thinking Spurs won't pay X amount are severely mistaken. If Poch wants a player badly and the player wants to come, £40m isn't beyond Spurs or Levy's doing. Don't forget, our assets (the players) are also worth many times more than they previously have been, so the clubs wealth, on paper, has increased massively.

  10. Fact: Barkley wants to come to THFC. Another fact: Everton want to maximise earnings, by selling to highest bidder.

    So, the no-brainer for anyone, let only our Dan, is to wait to match whoever bids highest. The toffees are on very sticky wicket here, with the BovineShiite, £50m they're asking, for a player with a year left on his contract. If Barkley doesn't want to go abroad, you cab only expect him to want to go to a Top 6 team.

    Unless Arsenal want him, I can't see any of the others bidding for him. So, in such scenario, how much would I pay for Barkley, now? I'll add a nominal £2/3m to the 12/15m a tribunal might adjudicate, as fair value, at the end of his contract, next year. With numbers like that, it might just be worth Everton's while to keep him; surely, however daft he may be, he's worth more than the nominal £3m they'll get, now, on top of that arbitrated-£15m

  11. Barkley arguably wouldnt get in Everton's starting 11 next season.

    1. Only us, Spurs fans, can tolerate his seeming daftness. If taking opponents on is what he wants to do, we'll have him; we're daft for dribblers, like that. What'll help us in this situation - stand us in good staed - is that we have a team that can absorb the consequences of his midfield daftness. Plus, a magician of a manager, who can make him flourish.

  12. Everton best player. 30 million. He's ours. Playing in a better team he'll excell.

  13. Why would you pay $40 mil for Barkley when u could get Sigi back for $50??????????? Sig ten classes above Barkley!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Im an Evertonian, and Ive got to say Spurs really doesnt need Barkley. You guys have better players in his position. Also, anything above 20mill, even in this finacial climate, is crazy for him. He's a one good game in five-kind of player. If he wasnt a local lad, we probably would have sold him already. Not good enough for a side with CL in mind.

  15. I still don't think we would pay 40 mil for anyone that couldn't walk straight into the first team but I would still like to see him at Spurs 25 mil tops for me though !
    Good points from the Evertonian above and so long as he is happy sitting on the bench for awhile the 1 in 5 might work in our favour !
