Player Valuation: £50m
You're just being weird now. I think it's pretty clear what I mean. If the manager of Manchester United thought Tarkowski would walk into their team then he would have signed him. With the best will in the world Tarkowski would not be turning down guaranteed games at United to come here, therefore it's safe to say United did not want to sign him. The opinion of the United manager of whether he walks into their side is more relevant than the opinion of little old me sat here banging away on my keyboard. This is all fairly simple stuff.Its a forum.
There could be a multitude of reasons why he didnt push for a move when Moyes offered £20mil...£30mil...and £35mil to Burnley over the past 2 seasons.
Tarkowski may have only wanted to play for Lampard...didnt want to move house...blah blah blah.
The only way to gauge the 'reality' of where he is in the league is to look through the 20 sides.
He gets into all but 5 of them. You responded to that "none of them tried to sign him"...
If opinions arent relevant (as you stated) then show your factual evidence that no club was interested in him or bid for him apart from Everton.
I'm perfectly happy with us signing Tarkowski, but I find the determination of some to make out like it's some sort of transformative signing of an undoubtedly top class centre half to be really bizarre. He's a good PL player and he's free, just be happy with that instead of trying to convince yourself a 29 year old with 2 caps and a history of playing in lower league and relegation battling teams is a modern day Bobby Moore.
