McCarthy To Blackburn? You Must Be Joking

McCarthy To Blackburn? You Must Be Joking




It`s being reported that Wigan Athletic have rejected a £9million bid from Blackburn Rovers for £25 million rated 20 year old midfield man James McCarthy.

The Sun claim that Rovers boss Steve Keen submitted the bid but it was laughed off by his Latics counterpart Roberto Martinez, McCarthy to Blackburn for £9 million is one of the most ridiculous pieces of speculation to come out so far this summer.

McCarthy is destined for great things in the game, if he does move from the Latics it will be to a club with title ambitions and for a lot more cash than what Blackburn have reportedly put forward. There are suggestions that the Latics are actual looking to give the Republic of Ireland an extension to his remaining three years at the DW Stadium with a significant pay rise to elevate him to one of the clubs top earners.

The boy is going nowhere

25 million rated? HA!!! What planet are you on? Wesley Sneijder valued at £30 million to Man United, Fabregas £35 million to Barcelona.. £25 million for McCarthy?? Having a laugh! Worth anything from 8 million to 12 million.

You'll not get him. Jordan Henderson £20 mil McCarthy is much better so on that £25 mil is correct

Jordan Henderson = English and therefore = overpriced.

Agreed with rover23. If James McCarthy was English he'd be going for £20m-£25m. If he was from Argentina or somewhere like that he'd be going for around £12m-£15m. If he was Scottish he'd be going for around £8m. He's Irish so he'll be going for about the same. £8m-£12m. £25m is a laughable demand you will never get that for him. Hey if he's worth £25m you can have Keith Andrews off us in exchange plus £6m Also don't delude yourself into thinking Rovers wouldn't be a step up for him. Bigger club, bigger history, bigger fanbase, higher attendances and more prospects for the future other then relegation fights year in year out. The futures bright. The future is blue and white.

No chance he will go to Blackburn, so what is debate?

£25m?? Come on seriously... I'm sure he's a decent player but that's a bit over the top. Not even sure the story of us bidding is true but if we or another PL club had bid around £10m i would put good money on him leaving as Dave Whelan has already stressed that Wigan need to sell to re-invest and you're only realistically going to make a profit on McCarthy, N'Zogbia and Rodallega IMO.
