That's probably how we got pepe. Good or bad. We signed players because we needed bodies rather than for the longer term. If it means greasing the hands of a few scenes, so be it, as long as we get first dibs in the summer on a big player. Dealing with agents is a reality. I'm on as long as it doesn't overall long term player quality. Luiz in hindsight has been a good short term signing for a couple of years. Really the best CB at the club right now. For 40mn budget, we juggled with part payments and got saliba for the future.

However for any long term signings it has to be data and a thought process , it cant be based on the agents and contacts. although tapping up the player using the said agents is fair game as long as the player was identified as a target before hand.
