Last I checked we’re making about £100m a year and sitting on nearly £200m in cash.
We could spend £75m on a 28 year old Higuain (and that was just his clause, we might have been able to get him for a little less) and £35m on a Xhaka every season and only make a relatively small loss (and you could argue this would be covered in prize money, sponsorships, shirt sales, image rights) and that would probably be at worst breaking even if you were selling players too (there will obviously be an increase to the wage bill).
We’ve still got time to make deals so I’m not panicking but if we yet again don’t sign a striker capable of starting and it comes to Giroud or Higuain starting on September 1st then I don’t think it we can sit here and laugh at how Juventus actually went and splashed some cash this one time when they happen to have loads of it right now.
A question I’ll ask for those saying Juventus are being stupid here - what do they do with the money? They’re losing one of their top players for probably a world record fee and they were forced to lose a forward through a clause, so who do they buy to still compete with the elite of Europe? If you go to every club in Europe with £75m in your pocket, what’s the best you’ll get?
