    HYPOTHETICAL - Chinese club come in with 25m bid for Knocky this window - SELL or KEEP?

    It's a heartwrencher, I know - but Chinese clubs are absolutely SPRAYING the money around at the moment (127m bid for Aubameyang?)

    So, if a Chinese club came in with a silly money bid for Knockaert, would you still say keep?

      I think you know the kind of answers you'll get, but of course we keep him for that money. Frankly I would be amazed if a Chinese club bid for a player outside the top leagues, but in the fantasy event that they do come calling, it has to be over 100m, just for the lols.

      I doubt Knocky would want to go anyway, although I suppose 250k a week might convince him.

      Keep. Absolute no-brainer. Could cost us promotion and Knocky would still have value if we do not go up.

      I'd say keep, but I do wonder what number we WOULD sell him at. It would have to be massive.

      Are you asking ME?

      (i.e. in the hypothetical question, am I answering as a fan of the club, or AS the club?)

      Because PERSONALLY I get a lot more enjoyment from watching Knockaert play football, than I would from seeing a different number on an accounts sheet. So, no.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      I think 40m would do it, at 25m we'd stick wouldn't we?

      Just out of interest, seems like Chery of QPR is on his way to China.

      Was a thread on him on here the other week where general consensus is he's a bit of a mercenary with attitude issues. Case closed on that one I think.

      Keep for so many reasons. But mainly because the potential income we would gain by making it to the Prem is much more than 25 million.

      I would add that all of the current players are part of a machine that compliment one another almost perfectly. Take someone as integral as AK out of it and it could fall apart completely (Kante at Leicester for example).

      Sell with a loan-back clause for the rest of this season.
