I'm sure we could afford him without selling. I think that if Griezmann called and said he wanted to join us we would scrape together £60m if that's what Atletico wants for him, if we wanted him. I think we could now, I don't think we could 4 years ago. I don't think we could keep doing it every window, but we could do it once or twice in the odd situation something pops up that we feel we just have to pounce on.
I think Suarez is a great example, I think we triggered Suarez' clause with £40m + a lollipop because those are the rules but we knew that wasn't going to be the final price, and we were prepared to pay more, it is just that Liverpool said no anyway and no, contrary to popular belief, actually means no in football transfers unless the player makes an effort. They probably made a deal with Suarez he could leave but not to a direct league rival (perhaps Barca had already enquired) or he didn't want to come here, I don't know. But we can't just put £60m on the counter and point at Griezmann and say one of those, please.
