Although those very same "jubilant Twitter accounts" were also jubilant on Friday morning as "Caicedo isn't worth more than £80m" and "Liverpool are overpaying".Brighton have £115m and a sell-on clause.
Chelsea have Moises Caicedo for 8+1 years, and a lot of jubilant Twitter accounts.
EDIT: That's what I like to see
To my mind, he is a simple lad, looks a bit like Richarleson (lost), not a big character, trusts in god, could have a meltdown now he is on mega money, totty-brochured, and massively obligated to service his extended family and liggers, now he is the third largest industry in Ecuador.They stuck at £80m. We could have accepted that (as suggested by some here) to avoid having a disgruntled player, but we managed to get an extra £35m! Indeed if Chelsea had offered £100m a couple of weeks ago, they'd probably have got him, but they managed to wait until Liverpool got involved.
So without question, Brighton are the winners in the deal.
That's not to say Caicedo isn't a great player and can't go on to great things with Chelsea, but every player has their price and we've basically got more than what anyone considered the maximum price to be.
Don’t see the point in that. Rather he did well and we receive all our add ons for him. Even a future sell on. Why despite that?He has a lot of pressure on himself now to deliver.
Hopefully he cracks under that pressure and turns into a shadow of the player he was with us.
