There’s no need to be tetchy. I have done as you said and every article I found said that Spurs opening bid was £20m and they never went higher as they were trying to barter the price down due to Villas financial issues. Once Villa’s new owners were in place, every article I’ve looked at says they then said they wanted double that as a ploy to scare clubs off and it worked. We can say we want £75m for Doucoure - it doesn’t mean he is worth it. We could say Capoue is worth £45m. Would we then have a £120m duo in our midfield? No, because they aren’t worth that. As for McGinn, it was one outlet that reported that and the others followed suit. But it had all the hallmarks of sensationalism without foundation. I accept I may have been a bit wide of the Mark with what I said so I apologise for that. But likewise, I stand by the comments that the pair are worth nowhere near £100m. But in fairness, I can see why you have said they are a £100m duo - if Villa think Mings is worth £25m, their values of their CM’s is about right for them.
