New contract for Benteke

No fee required. Scored yesterday, looks sharp. Even Hennessey says he is on fire in training. Surely we should at least be offering him an extension? After Zaha he is our most important attacking player. Would be worth a transfer fee if on a long term contract. Not sure he would sign, but hope we are at least considering it.

Can assure you I'm not. Playing with injury/out injured last year for 6 months. Now looking good. Score 10 goals in the Premier League and he's back to being worth £20m+.

If he has a great season, everyone will be wishing we had signed an extension. Risky both ways really.

Best would be if he'd extend on slightly reduced terms. Seems unlikely though.

We shall see what he does the incentive is there to perform this season as he is in the shop window.

Unlikely he would sign a new deal unless it more than matched his existing terms.

We can't really dish out too many of these type of contracts going forward apart from to our consistent high performers.

We seem to have no option but to retain him so we might as well get the best we can from him. If his injuries and confidence are addressed and he is used properly no reason why he shouldn't play well again.

We should be working hard to sell him for £10m before the season starts so we can get someone else in.

In an ideal world he is sold. Though this is looking more and more unlikely.

Therefore, there is a certain logic that if we are paying him £120k a week this season that at the start of this season we offer him a 2 year deal on £80k. Lowers our wage bill for this season for someone who we know has little re-sale now but also future proofs us should he score 6/8 goals by Christmas and technically only commits us to around £2m more than we would be paying anyone for him.

Definitely would give him a reduced contract, if he would sign it or not is another matter.

Even at £10m who is likely to bid that and take on the £120k a week?

Depends on the money I suppose

Right deal then its worth it. He could come good again is the reward and we keep him or sell for a decent fee. The risk of course is he doesn't and we are stuck with him so the contract would have to be a reasonable figure for him to be a squad player.

Maybe reduced basic but with very attractive performance bonuses then worth a look

If imagine any deal would only be considered by benteke if we honoured this remaining year at its current value anyway

If only so he doesn’t leave for nothing. I’ve a feeling he will have a good season though.

The flip side is, as much as most want him sold, we almost certainly cannot sell him without 1 if not 2 replacements coming in. Wickham, Sorloth and possibly Ayew is relegation material, regardless how bad Benteke has been

Maybe he would consider reduced wages for a three year contract in a location he is happy with. Say £90k a week on 3 year contract. I think there are clubs that might have a punt on him at those sorts of levels and a transfer fee around £10m. Particularly if we explain nicely to him that we want to go in a different direction and he won't be a regular starter this season. Like all fans I want to see him spark again but I think its far more likely that he disappoints, like in the last seasons. Then of course if he does do well he will probably ask for £200k a week for a new contract or bugger off to someone else who will pay it. Need to get rid of the Benteke problem and get someone fresh in.

Now Connor has a 2 year contract I would also be happy if we loaned him to the championship for a season, as long as we could get a new loan striker in ourselves. He has been out such a long time and the premier league is unforgiving. He could rebuild his fitness and score some goals in the champ and then we can either reintegrate him next season or sell.

Out of interest, how does ‘working hard to sell Benteke’ look like in reality?

Stay up till the wee small hours cold calling every club in the world in the vein hope one won’t mind paying 120k a week for a striker who’s scored 4 goals in 2 seasons?

Make a video of Ben’s best bits and try and make it go viral hoping someone doesn’t recall the last 2 years?
