Its clearly a major discount on the amount we paid out but I think 99.5% of the world would agree that the figure was ridiculously inflated. I think at the time with his form took into consideration, I would say his value was £22m tops. To try and get a bit of perspective Ballotelli was £18m, Aguerro £35m, both are young players and we are hearing that Cavani (in the form of his life) could be on the move for £35m.
I think to add more detail to your question it would be a case of "How much would Sturridge and Wellbeck be worth if their managers no longer wanted them?" I very much doubt that Sturridge would be anymore then £17m when in favour so maybe more like £12m? Wellbeck, I dont really see a situation right now where United wont want him but if he did fall out of favour then I assume that would be because of a dip in form so again, somewhere similar?
Whatever happens I just hope we don't get another kicking in the financial goonies. I cant see how a £2m loan deal with a view to a £17m purchase later works for us at all.
If he tears the PL apart the £19m looks good value for West Ham.
if he bombs they give him back and we're in a worse position possibly.
Either way I see his confidence taking another kicking.
