Yep, gonna have to pay him one way or the other. Same with Matuidi. This was bound to happen and everybody and their mothers knew it. Same with Bonucci, same with Danilo, same with Ramsey, the moment they signed. Gotta live with it
btw it's actually 10,5m gross, and it makes sami one of our cheapest players on a yearly basis. ffs, pjaca costs us 8,3m, mostly injured costa ~21,5m, even matuidi is at 14,6m. sami's time is over here due to his injuries, but he isn't THAT expensive.
