A very good point.

The more I think about it the more I come to the conclusion that contracts should be transferred along with the player.

Bournemouth are valuing Nathan Ake at 75m it’s hard to believe that we have had so many pundits etc saying we are overpricing Zaha when there are other clubs valuing players at this kind of money

Where is the total spending at vs previous years? Doesn't seem as outrageous as previous years, but I'm not sure.

Dont play video games. The music I listen to they probably dont earn that much and likewise with films I watch so Im halfway there. Hadnt thought about it until you said it, not trying to prove a point but as you mention it even in jest.

Ake has probably got a massive sell-on percentage to Chelsea.
