There’s no way this actually happens. Laporta isn’t that dumb.
Wouldn't be the first time when a President or a Director of Football would rate a player differently than many fans. That's another massive gamble though...
When you land players like Depay for free, spending 60m on Olmo seems counterintuitive. At 30-40m it makes a lot of sense if he comes with a low salary, at 60m it smells like a tricky gamble for us.
One thing is for sure. None of our midfielders has scoring potential. AT ALL. De Jong needs to replace Busi, and Pedri's scoring ability is weak imo. This leaves an opening for an AM with a good workrate to help out in midfield and bag some goals in bigger games too.
But I would pass for Olmo and put all the money on a top 9. The problem is Haaland is out of reach for us, and there's no one else who is enticing in the position.
