Not going to lie and know people are going to hate me for it, but if China gave me 30m in the summer I would take it in a second.
I'd be tempted too, but I'm not confident about adequately replacing him. We'd probably go and blow the proceeds on someone over-rated like Ross Barkley.

I believe with our evolution that Winks will be more than enough to usurp Dembele. Then we use the figurative Dembele money to get someone else. Drop it on Dahoud and have a CM2 of Dahoud and Winks. Sexy as fuck

Not if they're offering 30m. If you're good you get 50.

I love Dembele, but this would make a lot of sense (this summer, not now) He's 30 this summer, he's injury prone, and he's already our first sub during the match because I just don't think he can keep up for 90' anymore. I'd say he's likely only got 2 years left here anyway.

30m+ and Dembele gets a nice payday, seems to suit all parties.

China = massively over inflated fee = sold.

Is he a key player? yes
Does he expect to be a regular starter? yes
Is he in form? not really
Why? injury prone
Will he be get over his injury problems? no
Do we have a ready made replacement? yes
Do we need to invest elsewhere? yes

Conclusion - sell for a substantial fee (£30m plus).

WOW, wrong end of stick,,That response was to Cravenspurs quote that he would except £30m. However now you have raised the issue, I would rather he stay. 60 -70 mins of Mousa is better than 90 of a nobody. I still think Harry Winks needs more game time to be able to step in.

My joke was that if Cravenspurs was good they'd give him 50. They give 30 to your average Sunday leaguer at this point. Crazy money over there.

Fuck that! £30m is nothing these days, he's still one of the first names on the team sheet for me, he's still got 2-3 years at the top level left in him..
