Hmm Liverpool may be lining themselves up for more mockery. Buying back a guy for 6m after they sold him for 250k. Sturridge at 12m is interesting.
Yeah it isn't just buying him back it is doing it so soon after selling him. You quite often see players who were let go as teenagers returning to clubs many years later but not many sold and got back again 18 months later.
Paying £12m for Sturridge is pretty steep tbh. He'll be a reasonable enough signing for them though, I imagine. Won't drastically improve them, I don't suppose, but would add some depth, which they desperately need.
Hahaha Sturridge. They must have the least imaginative scouting network of all time.
The policy of paying ridiculous sums of money for overhyped Brits will come good eventually, give it time.
In other news, Wilshere's signed a new long-term deal. Disappointing, was hoping United could steal him.
Yeah, managed to sign up Jenkinson, Ox, Gibbs and Ramsey as well. Not all that bothered about Ramsey, but glad the rest of them have been tied down. Just need to get Theo to follow suit now.
Sturridge isn't over-hyped at all. Realistically, if he was, he'd of been in the squad for the Euros at the very least. Extreme potential the lad has imo.
