Everyone has a Price!
r.waterfall shares his thoughts on the Chelsea confirming their interest in Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy, to which they were told they couldn't have him…
Chelsea have told Blackburn to name their price for Benni. We have said he is not for sale. Wrong answer!
Bearing in mind McCarthy's change of loyalty over the last 6 months and the likelihood of him arranging a media transfer request, now he knows Chelsea want him, we should have said £35m and waited for the reaction.
If "yes", Mark Hughes would bring in some good players for that. If Chelsea came back with some derisory offer, THEN would be the time to tell them he is not for sale.
What if Chelsea offered £30m or say £20m + Shevchenko? Before anyone says these fees are too high, Leeds sold Rio Ferdinand for £29.1, that was years ago and for a defender!
McCarthy is the one player who might bring the record transfer fee, between 2 British clubs, back to BRFC.
