Here at Vital Fulham, we were hoping that, by now, a deal to secure the services of Aleksandar Mitrovic, on a permanent basis, would have been completed.
But it clearly hasn’t.
Somewhat perplexed we decided we’d scour the internet for some kind of explanation.
Well, it seems our good friends at Sky Sports, are of the opinion that the two clubs involved, Newcastle and Fulham, are at odds over the transfer fee for the Serbian striker.
Seemingly, Fulham are only wishing to pay a transfer fee in the region of £16 million for the player whilst Newcastle want £2 million more.
Now, to us, it seems that we’re in danger of losing out on a player who had so much to do with turning last season around from an average one to a promotion winning one.
Surely, if the difference is as little as £2 million, somebody should step up to the ante and authorise the fee.
The new season is just a mere two weeks away, if Fulham seriously want Mitrovic to lead the attack this coming season then time is fast running out.
Here at Vital Fulham, we’d like to hear your views on the above subject matter.
Should Fulham bite-the-bullet and pay-out the fee Newcastle United want or should we stick to our guns?
