Reports are claiming that Everton will be looking for bids of £50M if Ross Barkley does not sign his contract.
Ronald Koeman has said that he wants to know the intentions of Barkley, who is mulling over a contract offer, by the end of the week.
A decision is highly unlikely by then, extending the impasse into potentially volatile territory as Koeman has said the player will be sold if he does not put pen to paper.
In those circumstances, reports claim that Everton will demand a fee similar to the one they received for John Stones a year ago, despite the fact Barkley has only a year remaining on his current deal.
The rationale for such a figure is the current standing of Barkley, his age, and the likely calibre of club who will show an interest. Tottenham have long been considered the most likely destination but new reports suggest Arsenal are now showing interest.
The fact that Barkley's contract is running down is not considered to be a factor in his price this summer, with the World Cup approaching next year. To remain in contention, Barkley must play at the highest level, and cannot risk being used sparsely, if at all, by Koeman, should he choose to play out the final year of his contract.

If the club got that, fair enough... but I can see no suitors at that price and the issue rumbling on till January unless Barkley does sign the contract.

If he goes, we'll be lucky to get £15 to 20 million.

If we demanded anywhere near that amount you know the answer we'd get? A big laugh and a response of something like "We'll just talk to Ross in January". Why would anyone, unless they are desperate, pay anything like that now?
Plus Koeman has made a rod for his own back by publically stating we'll sell him if he doesn't sign as that puts the power even more firmly in the buying team's court.
Hang on – you are not the journalist peddling this story, are you?

£25 million is a more realistic figure especially with 12 months left on his deal. I hope he doesn't sign the contract on offer for everyone's sake. It's time for us all to move on.
12 Posted 17/05/2017 at 09:05:51
What I don't get is why he is front and centre in the new kit trailer. We are going to get an almighty load of stick from rival fans if we do now sell, especially that spawn from across the way.
We really don't think things through sometimes...
13 Posted 17/05/2017 at 09:08:42
14 Posted 17/05/2017 at 09:25:51
Buying teams would know we are desperate to sell both because of Koeman's public comments and it's his last year. We have very little wiggle room in the current situation.
Unlessof course the buying team are desperate for him. And I can't believe any team would be that desperate for him, either above us in the league or around our position.
Anyway, I guess we'll see. I actually hope he stays, although as a squad player, as I think he could do a job for us but I hope we buy better, á la Mirallas.
15 Posted 17/05/2017 at 10:02:30
I can't see any club waiting until January as you suggest. And are such 'pre-contracts' allowed?
16 Posted 17/05/2017 at 10:15:37
If Ross decides he will take the 3rd option, which isn't on offer. He will find himself training with the U23s for the final year of his contract and with no chance of playing for England in the World Cup.
The club and Koeman have thought this through. They are playing hardball, and they will get what they want. A club will pay us what we want or Ross will sign the contract on offer.
Koeman is not as stupid and naive as some will have you believe. He was brought in to make hard decisions, and he is prepared to be ruthless.

18 Posted 17/05/2017 at 10:27:35
19 Posted 17/05/2017 at 10:35:55
Yeah I believe so. My understanding is that 6 months before contract expires (typically January 1st onwards) the player is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club.
And I'll flip that round. What team better than us, would want him? None of the 6 above would pay £30 mill as he wouldn't get be a starter for those teams. A team like West Ham could pay £30 mill I guess, but why the hell would Ross refuse a contract from us and go down a level?
It is as simple as that so I disagree with you. The club has stated we will sell him if he doesn't sign. Fine. What if no one bids £30 mill and we get a couple of bids around the £15m mark? We say no. Then what? Why would any team that is an improvement on us bid £30 mill for Ross with 1 year left on his contract? It just doesn't make commercial sense.
Honestly I cant get my head round why anyone would pay £30 mill for him in this situation, for a player who will not improve teams above us (yes he may improve their squads but not first teams). If he had 2 years + on his contract then I agree, £30 mill or he's not moving. But he hasn't.
I can actually see him moving next summer for nothing. He has all the power.
20 Posted 17/05/2017 at 10:45:26
If a club isn't willing to pay a fee satisfactory to us, then Ross will stay and sign the contract on offer. He will not risk a season seeing out the final 12 months of his contract in the U23s. It would derail his career.
Koeman is not a man to go back on his word. No way will he be made to lose face on this issue.
Also, I suspect top 6 clubs will be interested. Many managers will have seen enough quality to believe that they can get more from him in a team with better players.

Barkley isn't Niasse. His Everton career doesn't amount to less than an hour in a first-team shirt and he's not widely considered by a majority of fans and the media to be a fucking clumsier, dopier version of one of those 'Prawns' from District 9. There's no way he would be ostracised to such an extent and be left pulling himself off in purgatory until the final game of next season is played.
Imagine if Everton were having a slapped scrotal sack of a season, or suffered a number of mid to long-term injuries in midfield, and Barkley was left stewing in the stiffs. Koeman would (1) be cutting off his nose to spite his face by ignoring a viable (and still highly-rated) option simply out of spite; and (2) would be coming under intense pressure to utilise a 'raring to go' player left to rot, because he refused to put pen to paper by a particular date, in order to try and improve results.
26 Posted 17/05/2017 at 12:06:26
Not sure I see him fitting in well at any of the rich clubs... Man Utd maybe?
You'd think £30 million at least, with the premium on English players and the silly market, regardless of the contract.
27 Posted 17/05/2017 at 12:17:13
It will be close to that for Barkley, I suspect, if he goes, and all the better for Everton to offload a player who isn't consistent enough.
28 Posted 17/05/2017 at 12:35:28
29 Posted 17/05/2017 at 12:57:19
It certainly is looking as though he will go. But if he does, I would not sell Rom until at least late August. And even then, it would depend on how many players and of what calibre we have brought in.
This is gonna be a very significant transfer season for Everton. Between four and five will probably go. A few more than that will be needed.
30 Posted 17/05/2017 at 12:58:33
31 Posted 17/05/2017 at 13:26:08

"Here you are, Ross. You want to walk away from here and play elsewhere? Well, we aren't going to keep up your fitness, that is your job. We are not going to help you get in the England team for the World Cup. You can sit at home all day, every day, and I wonder who will come calling this time next year for an mainly out-of-condition, not-match-ready player.
"For sure, not one of the top 6 because they will not want to wait a season for you to be available. Seems like a club lower than the club you do not want to play for..."
34 Posted 17/05/2017 at 14:41:23
35 Posted 17/05/2017 at 14:47:02
"The club and Koeman have thought this through" ...
"Koeman will not go back on his word; no way will he be made to lose face over this."
So, if Ross doesn't sign by Sunday, he will be put up for sale and, regardless of Koeman's brainless comments, somebody will pay £50m for him?
There is no way Koeman can come out of this without looking ridiculous. Barkley and his agent have simply blanked his demands. If they decide to sign, it will be their decision and no matter how far past Koeman's deadline they go. The Dutchman will have to lump it.
Koeman has painted himself into too tight a corner, Chris. I know you are a big fan, but there's no room for both of you in there.
36 Posted 17/05/2017 at 14:51:56
Only Man City are daft enough to pay anything like £50m. If there's no competition for his signature, why would they go that far in any event?
37 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:04:20
38 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:07:43

How the heck do you manage such an accurate calculation Peter? There must be a Premier League job around for that.
40 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:12:46
Now are shirts are being sponsored by the Bulgarian/Kenyan Mafia, Barkley's attempted "leverage" should be immediately passed over too the "Sponsor Department" for an offer to be made that Mr Barkley cannot refuse. Ask him if he has a paddock??
41 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:45:14
Yes, he only has a year left... but the league is awash with Sky money so silly bids will come in. Chelsea regularly pay £30m+ for players who sit on their bench and Spurs paid £30m for Sissoko.
The likes of West Ham are desperate and Newcastle will be keen to make an impact - both have cash. I doubt Arsenal would be interested as Barkley's not clever enough for their midfield, imho.
42 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:49:16
Use the money to bring in a more consistent Sigurdsson. He can assist and score and play where Barkley does.
43 Posted 17/05/2017 at 15:57:47
44 Posted 17/05/2017 at 16:05:26
How are you finding your corner? You are well and truly wedged in without any room for manoeuvre.
It's worth noting that neither Koeman or the club have come out with this £50 mill price tag.
45 Posted 17/05/2017 at 16:33:51
It really should not come to that though as he loves the club and is probably hoping for improved terms.
46 Posted 17/05/2017 at 16:43:23
However, Everton seem to be in a contrary position on this. Forcing a decision from Barkley then touting a price tag I find unrealistic that will not create a bid anywhere close to their valuation. Do they actually want to keep Ross, or force him to sign a contract, knowing they won't get a satisfactory bid?
Searching for a comparison...
I think Van Persie went in his last year for a hefty sum, £28M? Even with an injury-prone record and age against him.
Ross has nowhere near the same impact as Van Persie but okay, he has fitness and age in his 'for' column.
I've said this has been handled poorly by the club and with pure stupidity by Koeman. So what do Everton actually want from Barkley?
Ross hasn't to date uttered anything in public – good on him for that. Silence is often telling and my gut tells me surely if he was going to sign he'd have signed by now. The league position is fixed, we have qualified for the Europa League – what more does he need to know?
So it points to him not signing, I guess. But who truly knows? I cannot see him 'waiting' to see who we sign and see if that matches his ambitions unless he's had one too many saunas with Rom.
Waits for next OP on Barkley tomorrow on Toffeeweb... Michael, Lyndon – dig deep fellas and find something left field to get us in a lather about!
Technology in football
Two referees instead of one
No offside in the middle third of the field
Yes of course I'd still post if it was a Barkley story!
47 Posted 17/05/2017 at 16:47:16
48 Posted 17/05/2017 at 16:52:28
Has anyone asked him though? Has he done an interview lately? I know the press are all over Lukaku when he goes on international duty, and that's where most of his feedback comes from.
Just a thought.
49 Posted 17/05/2017 at 17:05:37
He might be under 24 now, but he won't be by the time his contract comes to an end.
50 Posted 17/05/2017 at 17:15:32
But if Barkley leaves for considerably less than the reported valuation, Koeman will be slaughtered for handing him to a rival club at a discounted price in order to satisfy his own ego.
As you are aware, Barkley isn't short of critics, but he also has an army of fans. They love their "diamond" and anyone who forces him from the club will (in my view) be hastening his own exit. Every cloud 'n all that...
I'm not familiar with that rule, but Barkley will be 24 before January. That surely changes the situation?
51 Posted 17/05/2017 at 17:26:58
If we get £50M for Ross then Sigurdsson with 8 goals and 13 assists, will cost us at least £40M (£75M value based upon performance, minus £35M for not being English).
Heck, Barkley's 5 goals in 35 appearances should mean that Niasse with 4 goals in 11 or so appearances should be worth at least £28M. Who knew?
52 Posted 17/05/2017 at 18:11:31
I wonder what a Conte or Pochettino could do for Ross? The options he would have on the pitch would improve his decision making and if Sissoko is worth £30m, Ross has a shout at bringing in a decent price for the right club.
However, I also think he is worth £30m+ to EFC!
53 Posted 17/05/2017 at 18:13:15
54 Posted 17/05/2017 at 18:39:54
The board will have put together a contract that they felt was fair. Barkley and/or his agent have decided to not sign the contract.
Nobody has forced him out. Koeman has publicly stated that he wants him to stay, but he has also made it clear that there will be no further negotiations. Sign it or be sold.
How do we know that the reason Barkley hasn't signed isn't because he is waiting for Spurs to firm up their interest? We haven't heard a peep from him. Maybe he has his heart set on leaving and Koeman and the board are aware of this? We don't know anything.
If Ross signs the contract by the deadline, or states his intention to leave, then Koeman can get on with his transfer plans. He can't do that with any certainty until he knows for sure who is staying and who is going.
Koeman hasn't stated how much he expects to get for Barkley if he is transferred. All of these fugures are unsubstantiated and his value will be determined by how many clubs are interested and how badly they want him.
If Barkley signs on Sunday, then Koeman will have played a blinder. Instead of Ross and his agent dragging it out for months in the hope of getting an improved contract or transfer, he will have signed weeks before the transfer window opens. The club will have the deal that they wanted, and Koeman / Walsh will then be able to continue their plans for the window with the knowledge of who is staying and who is going.
If Ross doesn't sign and nobody bids for him, then the situation will become a tad awkward. At that point, you can twist your knife with my blessing.

56 Posted 17/05/2017 at 18:53:23
- 6 months for an international transfer (i.e. From or to mainland Europe or Scotland(
- 3 months for a domestic transfer (to another English team).
57 Posted 17/05/2017 at 19:12:31
Everton of course has a great history of winning things in the past. I could be wrong but the last time was the 1985 FA Cup. With the new TV money coming in, loads of clubs can offer big paydays; however, only a few can win things and Everton is not one of them – no matter how much that hurts me to say. I can't see that changing very soon.
Lots of the club's first choices are becoming our second and even third choices. Let us not forget, if we spend £150 million in the summer (which I doubt), the bigger clubs are spending £200 million on their squads which are already stronger than us this season.
If you give me £6 million a year, I will tell you that we can break into the top four. But the real truth, as hard as it is to take, is that – without being able to sign the true top choices in the summer – things don't look good. That is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth – why Lukaku and Barkley want out; they want to win things and the bonus is that they will get paid more at other clubs to win things.
58 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:08:01
All we do know is Koeman's ultimatum. We don't know what's gone on but many on here are clear they don't want him at the club, irrespective of any reason.
It's open season on Barkley in TV and some of you are filling your boots. Barkley has his strengths and weaknesses but it's clear that there are tensions between manager and player. It may well be a fact of life that Koeman is building a team in which Barkley is a bit player but, as it stands, player or coach aren't happy. Unless they can sort it out in a few days, Barkley will be on his way and that's a shame because Koeman will be long gone before Ross's next contract will be due.
59 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:12:57
Looks like he will still be here next season then!
60 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:21:13
Ross Barkley will command a decent fee, whatever that is. Who cares how much we sell him for anyway? It's not your money.
We all know he has his moments, but he's hardly pulling up trees these days – as the manager says, the boy has talent, but he doesn't dictate games, and he fannies about with the ball too much.
Look at Dele Alli, now there's a player that puts Ross to shame of late. If Ross leaves, I honestly don't think we'll miss him that much.
Lukaku on the other hand might be harder to replace, despite being (ahem) a lazy, overrated flat-track bully.
61 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:25:50
1. Sign and stay;
2. Go abroad; or
3. Go to Newcastle Utd or Stoke City.
62 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:27:41
63 Posted 17/05/2017 at 20:39:54
I guess it all comes down to his agent, as they usually make good cash only from transfers. But then someone said he had a better one than that the other day.
I guess I'll believe it when I see it! Heh, agents not caring about their own money first... :D
64 Posted 17/05/2017 at 21:03:17
I also don't believe there are any major problems with Koeman and Barkley; I believe it is down to money. >The manager's comments relating to the contract on offer "the club will offer what is normal for the player" or something like that is very telling, isn't it?
He's basically saying Ross is not £100 grand a week player. For me (even with the absurd wages these days), I have to agree; Ross has not done enough to justify him becoming the club's highest-paid player.
Ross and his people are not going to come out and say "We are not happy with £70 grand + bonuses. And as I said before, Everton FC are looking out for us and Ross and his people are looking out for him.
65 Posted 17/05/2017 at 21:04:39
Also you can put on whatever price you like but if you have a unhappy player who does not want to stay, then eventually your starting gambit will lower. Interesting few weeks ahead.
66 Posted 17/05/2017 at 21:34:19

69 Posted 18/05/2017 at 01:00:57
If we said £30 million, clubs would offer lower, same as if we said £25 million; makes sense to put a higher price on his head.
If he signs then great; if not, he's not going for peanuts.

Has Mr Koeman's straight forward talking omitted something as nothing has been said as to what the problem is or where the negotiations, if there are any, are actually up to, or what the sticking points are.
Still, if you believe that one in and one out is the answer then you'll be able to assess a transfer fee for Barkley based on what Everton will have to pay for a similarly talented replacement.
75 Posted 18/05/2017 at 16:40:25
Perhaps we should put in an offer to Southampton for Garribaldi.
I'll get me coat.

"We aren't signing for these numbers, increase or we'll look at incoming offers".
"Fine, that's our final offer. Deadline next weekend".
"BTW, how much are you pricing him at ?".
"£XM or we don't sell".
"So you value him at £XM? But you're only offering those numbers. Can't have it both ways. We'll see you and call you!"
77 Posted 18/05/2017 at 20:16:11
I have lost all faith in Ross. He will never be a top class Premier League player. He's had enough chances, as far as I am concerned.
78 Posted 18/05/2017 at 20:35:49
79 Posted 18/05/2017 at 20:46:21
one upmanship and to whom a difference between 30, 50 or 100 million is mere pocket money will pay through the nose for any player with a smidgeon of talent.

I may be wrong but Everton's last trophy was the Coppa Italia in 39 BC against West Germany when Barry Chuckle and Tony Benn scored. Even though I sewed a seed of doubt in the above statement, it is of course the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

"Barkley has to agree to leave if Everton sell him. Alternatively, he can agree terms with another club and await the expiry of his contract."
I thought under the rules he could only do that with six months or less left on his contract. In other words the January window. Can someone clarify this?
90 Posted 22/05/2017 at 14:03:28
Last month, Koeman compared it to the situation at Soton. He said he sold players who wouldn't extend deals because the club couldn't risk losing them on Bosmans.
That infers you won't have money to replace Barkley unless you sell him. Ergo we are in the same boat we've always been – having to sell to buy.

On the other hand, he should be wary of the top clubs who will want him due to his low price (circa £28 million in reality) so as to fill their English quota with a quality player, but for who he will be expendable. In his shoes, the decision should correspond to the faith Koeman has in him which, from the outside looking in, appears far from constant. Little wonder he has not signed!
94 Posted 22/05/2017 at 20:40:34
Koeman is castigated because he says it how it is.
We are currently looking like an amateur bunch of misfits without an invite to the party.
We really do look like a bunch of also-rans. Koeman to his credit has kept his powder dry. However, how much more of this media merry-go-round do we have to stomach.
Press release today. No, tomorrow If we want to join the big boys, time to grow up.
95 Posted 22/05/2017 at 20:51:53
96 Posted 22/05/2017 at 20:54:14
Does Ross have any idea what he wants? Does he owe it to the fans to speak up?
Is Koeman trying to get rid of him as he doesn't rate him? Does he see little hope of improvement? Do the club want him anymore or maybe they see him as a useful squad player? Who the hell knows?
I have read hundreds of comments now and not one has made me any the wiser apart from telling me the truth as they would like to see it. The timing and tone of comments tell us little really.
Seriously, does anyone know anything?

Whoever it is, why not put an end to this saga.
We really are a joke.
Linked to every player that breathed air, to be out bid by all and sundry.
Steve Walsh only has to show his face and the price doubles!
Apart from Lookman (future), what has he done?
Shoot me down. We are seen as a soft touch!

I fear we are probably all destined to keep doing that until we get an actual fact. But it keeps some wordsmiths busy here and that can be very funny at times but, for now, ultimately groundless.

Gana? Schneiderlin? Two very good signings there.

We all know that most of the Premier League clubs view it with disdain hence the ''reserve squads'' being fielded for most of the early rounds if not longer for some.
The only real trophies are The Premier League The Champions league, The Europa league and then maybe the FA Cup which in itself comes down to the luck of the draw and the luck many times in any given game.
Yes, we know too well that nothing has come to Goodison Park for a couple of decades and we all know why. Lack of good management and funding springs to mind and very few clubs can override that scenario.
Next season, financially Everton can not use that excuse and we hope this new manager will be able to use this last season as a good yardstick to plan success for next season.

Other than that, we know loads and loads of things. For instance I know where Serbia is and know fish have gills. Smart me.
107 Posted 22/05/2017 at 21:54:30
I've no idea.

Accepted; now going to contradict myself.
What else has he done?
I prefer to keep my powder dry, however Steve Walsh is not our media rep. That said, who is???

Jumping on every utterance from Koeman regarding the situation is getting ridiculous. He says what he believes to be the case, but is possibly being messed around himself by the board.
Nobody knows very much about anything. Unfortunately, Nathan Broadhead signing a new contract was never going to be enough to divert attention from it.

It becomes the way we are as club and team and we have been this way for a long time now, a sort of dishevelment I think it is. The details do matter, we need to start to manage ourselves with serious intent and pride.
111 Posted 22/05/2017 at 23:44:30
Koeman's playing a blinder by putting it on Ross to sign a contract, knowing he wants out and probably has another club lined up.
As for £50 million, who came up with that figure... Diane Abbott?
