If Charlie Adam is worth £16m, then I will stick my head up my own a$$.

dude.. don't be this hard on

no_more_heroes4045d ago

ok it was a bit harsh, but how is he worth £16m when Wolfsburg's Diego is rumoured to be worth £15m?

Sahil4045d ago (Edited 4045d ago )

ohh.. i meant don't be too hard on yourself, i know he isn't worth 16m.

btw, for what i've seen I find adam better than diego but still not 16m quality.

12 goals and 9 assists for his first season in the Premier League is impressive, plus the fact he takes free kicks and corners.

Whether he's United quality though is another matter.

Well said, mate. Adam has been a great player this year. If the 16mil is true, I think that's a little much but we desperately need help in the center midfield.

I wouldn't pay more than £10m for him.

Anderson84044d ago

i'd say he's worth 10 mil in a world where james milner and lescott are worth 26mil

he's a quality player and desrves to be at a top half of the league club.. i'm not sure if he's good enough for united though.. he may prove me wrong and be able to cut it in the champions league
