We have been hearing that the Newco have picked up a bargain in Larsson fan boy Filip Helander, Transfermarkt, however, paints a very different picture of a player whose market value was on the wane before Sevco paid above an beyond his real market value.
The Swedish player had his market value peak at 2,5 million euro last December but slumped down to 2 million in the current window with the last market update being dated at June 6.
Now the Newco have come in with a deal of 3.9 million plus add ons, more than double 2 million euro which seems like a very good piece of business for the Italians.
Rangers can try and dress this up as a bargain and a marquee deal all at once, the facts are it is an expensive addition to a club which is in desperate need of external finance.
Should the tribute act fail to qualify for the Europa League then Bologna would want to try and recoup their money quickly, lest they be left in the same position as Rapid Wien were all those years back with Mr ‘title in the bag’ Jelavic.
Apparently we are crying because Sevco have bought a player for double his price who no one has ever heard of.
