    Overpaid but tbh napoli can afford him, so can you and it's a position they needed to be filled. Might as well pay 34 million then unless you can get someone on the cheap that's willing to go to your club.
    He's never worth 34m, he's a 24m player. Since our budget is more than twice that, we may as well try for Suarez at 40-50m who is genuinely top top class.

    Real Madrid dont seem to be overly interested and Suarez wants to join so I can see why Arsenal think they can make a deal.

    I stopped taking you seriously way back when you said Neymar is better than Suarez. And now youre saying that the value of a player depends on his nationality? Listen to yourself. Its like your contradicting yourself..just to start an argument
    He is. That's my opinion, you just can't handle my opinion. You are trying to state facts that just aren't true, you clearly aren't very knowledgeable in transfer valuations. If you've never heard of how English players transfer fee's are hiked up because of their nationality then where have you been hiding? Do you think Downing would have been 20 million? Carrol 35 Million?

    And oh did you not know about Thiago Silva and Marcelo mate? ?

    Haha, you are silly

    You are right I can't handle your opinion cause it doesn't make sense. How you came to pass the judgement that players are valued according to their nationality is beyond me. Your original argument said that you thought British players aren't valued the same as other nationalities such as Brazilian players. You seem to have gone back on your own argument just to make a pretty ridiculous point.

    This arguement is silly.

    English players are overvalued in the EPL.
    Brazilian players can only possibly be overvalued because everyone has heard of them and it therefore sparks a bidding war.

    English players are valued higher because of the requirement for a set number of 'homegrown' players by the EPL/UEFA.

    So youre saying that both English players and Brazilian players are overvalued? Of course the English players are overvalued in the EPL- its because they are home grown players. That wasn't the point of the discussion. Zyyz said that players are valued based on their nationality which simply isn't true.

    But with Neymars ridiculous potential plus he's Brazilian I think he's more of an valuable asset than Suarez honestly
    I can understand fans making stupid statements like this but what he is saying is that clubs themselves somehow value Neymar higher than Suarez cause he's Brazilian. :facepalm:

    Don't be an idiot. Napoli may have overpaid but at least his goalscoring rate makes up for it. Hulk has been abysmal for a year yet now costs 12m more than he was the previous season where he was on fire for porto. There's no way getting around this. :laugh:

    I don't think Hulk actually ended up signing for Monaco. There were reports he was in Monaco ready to sign which his agent confirmed, but I guess it fell through. :dontknow:

    Quite funny the amount of **** that was thrown around because of something that didn't even happen. My bad really considering I was the one who posted about it thinking it was a done deal (although to be fair it did seem like it was)

    English in EPL is obvious.
    The only reason why Brazilian players could be overvalued compared to say, a player from Luxembourg would be because the scouting networks are better in Brazil and more clubs are in for such a player. The player from Luxembourg may not be known by many clubs.

    Why would I say British players aren't valued when they are pretty much the worst for being overpriced.

    You think that I am pulling some fact out of my ******* that Brazilian players price tags are exaggerated, go and have a look son.

    Because of Brazils history of players and flair it's standard that they have n increased price tag. Tell me would Lucas Moura the 19 year old have been 45 million?
