I don't think bielsa is interested even one tiny bit. likeliest thing imo is that he'd go straight out on loan somewhere. if it weren't for the absurdly large fee we'd probably try to pay him off, though I dread to think what his wages might be.
if we don't go up then £20m ish would be an extraordinary amount to pay, for an almost value-less asset, by a 'business' that earns sub-zero profit on an annual turnover of c £50m a year. feels like almost though to put us into administration? though I suppose not, I guess it'd be amortised over a number of years and reduce our remaining transfer budget to minus something.
I think it's really shit or bust, as they say, with this one.
