Sullivan Admits He Would Sell Parker
I quote the Sulliedman himself:
"I have promised the fans I will not let Scott Parker go and I will not waver from that. If Scott came to me, said he wanted to move and was prepared to put in a transfer request, I would say, 'I'm terribly sorry, Scott, but I've made a promise to the fans'. I would remind him that it is too late to find a replacement now and ask him for one more year's commitment."
"Then I would let him go next summer if he still felt the same way. Scott has said nothing of the sort, though. Even if a club offered £10m I wouldn't sell him. If it was £30m though, I would have to think hard."
I'm not going to say much other than there is one hell of a deal making gap between £10 million and £30million! Sullivan seems to think that £10million is toppy for Parker given his words, "EVEN if a club offered £10m". So if the bid were £12million or £15million? I think we have evidence now of some wriggle room! And anyway, Parker can go next year! Would we really reject a £15million bid for the sake of one season? How stupid would that be?
