West Brom demand £25 million for Saido Berahino

January 24, 2015 3:52 pm
£25 million may be enough to land 14-goal West
Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino according to newly-appointed boss
Tony Pulis. The Baggies manager has begun his reign as boss with ongoing transfer speculation over the club’s most valuable asset.  Berahino
has burst onto the scene in fine style since making his debut in
September 2013 and scored his first league goal for the club at
Manchester United.
Chairman Jeremy Peace leaves Berahino future in Pulis’ hands. However, Liverpool’s
continued interest in the Burundi-born striker could leave the Hawthorns
side with no choice but to sell the 21-year-old.
“The
problem with talking about any players at this time of the year is that
if someone comes in with an unbelievable offer you can’t turn down then
you have egg on your face.” Pulis said.
“To say
he’s not going anywhere, that’s difficult at times, you never know
what’s around the corner. That’s why the chairman said it would be the
manager’s decision in the end.
“I’d have to
decide and take into account what we’ve brought in and what we’ve been
left with. Staying in the Premier League is vital. What’s it worth next
year? Hundreds of millions.
“We’ve not been
offered any money yet. But you’d have to sit down and think about it –
and you’d have to look at how strong the squad was he was leaving to
agree to it.”
Chairman Jeremy Peace is adamant
the club are not interested in selling the striker, but admits the final
decision on Berahino’s future lies with Pulis.
