I think the big contracts are a lot more complicated - not just on the money.
Those players want to see a commitment from the Club towards continued improvement before they sign their own deals. Ideally, Poch gets a new deal soon, which sends the signal to the players that Levy will back Poch, which leads to players signing extension.
don't know how long he currently has left on his contract but contracts aren't always there because we 100% want a player. could be handed a contract to bump up his selling value maybe? if hercs is banging along the lines of de ligt I'm not so sure we need him long term?
With CCV specifically, I assume this is to give the club another year to evaluate his progress. I would not write him off just yet. He is still very young - particularly by CB standards. He will presumably have a chance to show what he has improved in pre-season and USA tour, and then probably another loan, and everyone will re-group next summer to see where he stands.
This place drives me crazy.
You start thinking you're Poirot, looking for clues everywhere.
There's a triangle next to the thread title today. Never used before = three signed today?
Roll on September (obviously the other alternative is to stay away from here but that isn't going to happen)
