Quantcast

We knew KT bids were coming

169

We have known bids would arrive for Kieran Tierney since shortly after he made his Celtic debut.  There have been inquiries as to his availability for more than two years (all discouraged).  Everton were interested a year ago, but they were chased, and did not take the matter as far as a bid.

Celtic are certainly in no hurry to see the player go.  He has four years left on his contract and he will only appreciate in value over the next two seasons.  From what I hear, Kieran has shown no indication of wanting to leave.  This can change when contracts worth four or five times current earnings are offered, but Kieran is not going to pull a Moussa Dembele-type stunt.

Top players eventually play in the top leagues for six-figure-per-week wages and Kieran is a top player.  He is not going to remain at Celtic throughout his career.  When he goes, the fee will be important.  Dembele increased our top fee by almost 50%.  That £20m raised the value of all other Celtic players.  A big inhibitor to Celtic has been our inability to attract bids that Benfica and Ajax receive for their players.  If we cannot narrow that gap with Kieran, we never will.

There are plenty of targets he could stay to help deliver over the next two seasons, but right now, the club’s overwhelming target is to qualify for the Champions League.  All other considerations, for club and player, have to be secondary.

    I concur, a great modern center 1/2……………

     

     

    However, not a great fan of the loan deals

  5. Big Joe

     

     

    Loan deals is just a modern phenomena we’ll have to get use to…

     

     

    I’m ok with them if it guarantees those outwith our budget can play for us or helps in the try before you buy stakes (like Eddy)

    Good player Dunk and if guarantees we get big Filip then lovely jubbly…

  7. traditionalist88 on

    Outrageous money for Maguire.

     

     

    And Man Utd once again failing to get the players they want, the so called biggest club in the world who can’t sign world class footballers.

  10. Big McKenna has his critics on here but Maguire at ten times the price really sums up how bad the market is down there.

    On the subject of very tall players, footage of some of the players in their training camp showed a young boy towering over Jack Hendry. I think it might have been the boy Liam Morrison, who “the press say” is being linked to teams in Germany. Whoever it was must have been 6’4″ or 5″, given Hendry is around 6′ 2″.
