Didn't know that we had prior interest in him, but my point was more about trying to scout players and buy them before they reach Virgil Van Dijk 75m quid territory (which HM has no doubt reached since his hyped up WC performances).
Well we do sometimes. Dele of course, Sanchez arguably, Foyth possibly. Though when some inevitably don't work out, we get posters moaning about us going for the cheap option and having deadwood to shift.
Trix mentioned yesterday in regards to Zaha that his team didn’t put a clause in his contract (presumable for Champions League football) and that most players at smaller clubs have them. Wonder if that’s the case with Maguire?
