So yes, Welbeck and RVP are of the same standard, obviously.
Bids supposedly about £15. Arsenal want £30m. No-one's gonna pay that, but you can't blame them for trying.
Based on performances he's easily worth that money but when he has only a year left on the contract you have to be realistic. I think he'll head to Juve unless AC Milan stump up the cash for Dzeko or Tevez, then I can imagine City playing a little more hardball for him. It says we're holding out for £30m but by the end it'll be £20m I think.
