Check Out “Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out high-profile summer signings.” Despite selling Jota to Al Ittihad for £25 million, the Northern Irishman claims the club isn’t in a position to spend up to £20 million on a player.
Five players have already signed with the Hoops, and their average age is barely 21.
Regarding his team’s potential acquisition, Rodgers told Sky Sports: “I think everyone looks and thinks that we might be bringing in a £15-20m player.
“That won’t be the case, in fact. It is not the foundation of the club. However, that doesn’t imply that there aren’t talented athletes who we want available.
There is still a long way to go in the window, so we’ll try to strengthen the team once again.
“We did a lot of early business, which has been excellent because it lets the players get settled in. Of course, we want to do more. But I’m not anxious about it.
Mark Warburton, a former West Ham manager, has outlined the challenges David Moyes’ team is facing this transfer window.
The Hammers are the only Premier League club that has not yet made any signings for their first team squad.
And Warburton, who only recently departed his post at the London Stadium, has indicated that teams know they now have money after the sale of Declan Rice to Arsenal in a transaction that has the potential to reach £105 million.
He shared his thoughts on the matter with talkSPORT, saying, “Suddenly people know you are cash rich, so a £20 million player becomes a £ 30 million player and so on.”
You are probably aware that you have a lot of cash on hand because Declan gave it to you.
Warburton continued by saying, “They’ve got money in the bank, and anyone will add on 20 per cent, that’s the normal thing to do.”
