One of the more regular stories on the summer transfer window rumour mill for Southampton concerns big money flip Guido Carrillo.
The 28-year-old Argentine spend the season at Leganes with former manager Mauricio Pellegrino after seriously failing to impress and falling out of favour as he failed to score a single goal following his £19million arrival.
Now, some transfers just don’t work out and I wish the lad the best for the future, but the question for Southampton is simply what kind of hit do we take to move him on.
With plenty of speculation about an Argentine return, Greek interest or even a return to Leganes on a second loan spell, unsurprisingly this week we’ve seen reports that the club would naturally prefer a permanent deal rather than another season wasted knowing he would return next summer.
Sadly, I guess if someone offered us in the region of £5million we’d cut our losses and snatch their hand off at this stage.
