    I thought Thohir said he wanted to sign a striker inbetween the ages of Palacio and Icardi – he said about 27 I thought. So Martinez would fit the bill age wise.

    I don’t think Martinez is worth 27million. I guess his wage demands are probably lower than Dzeko’s.

    If Thorir doesn’t want to pay any player over 2.5mil/year then we’re never going to attract top talent, and we’re going to keep selling our best players for mediocre talent
