Brandt had a 25m release clause and Hazard wasn’t really a very expensive player , He just wanted Dortmund and managed to get a good deal.I think price is irrelevant these days. The “smaller” clubs always pay less. If United wanted Brandt, they would have to pay twice as much as Dortmund did, for example.
I’m sure if it was someone like Valencia wanting Pulisic, the price would be way less than what Chelsea paid. The clubs with the money always pay a massive premium.
So yeah, whoever Chelsea buy, they have to massively over pay. I agree on Pulisic though, they could probably of over spent on someone better.
I agree with what you say , When it comes to rich clubs , The price always increases , They add 10 , 20 , 30m. It makes it really hard , Unless your club has a good relationship with them and connections. PSG is having the same problem , But it is what it is
