The wee little baby club in Merseyside, Everton, just rejected a €100 million bid from Spanish giants Barcelona for Brazilian forward Richarlison.
that’s right, one hundred MILLION euros, and the Toffees said “keep it.”
IS THE KUSH IN LIVERPOOL THAT FUCKING FIRE?! DO ME AND THE LADS HAVE TO START COPPING FROM A PLUG OUTSIDE OF GOODISON PARK??
I mean Richarlison is good, no doubt about it, in fact of players currently aged 22 or younger, only Kylian Mbappé (45) and Jadon Sancho (23) have scored more non-penalty goals than Richarlison (21) in Europe’s top five leagues since the start of last season. Sancho and Mbappe are both world class, and €100m for one of them sounds far more reasonable, but Richarlison is certainly not at their level.
€100m is an extremely high valuation of the Brazilian forward in most people’s opinion and a solid return on investment for someone Everton paid £40m for back in 2018. Granted Richarlison is an integral part of this squad at the moment, netting 10 goals in 27 games as part of a struggling front line for Everton. However with the toffees currently 12th in the table, it seems like taking the money and trying again would be the best course of action.
just take twitters word for it:
I do gotta say I would miss interactions like these if Richarlison ever left Everton:
