Kent bid has major implications for Rangers

Kent bid has major implications for Rangers
Didn't see this among the footage....

Steven Gerrard’s confirmation that Leeds have indeed bid around £10M for Ryan Kent has created a wider implication which should not be taken lightly.

Only a week or two, the same club were attributed with an interest in Borna Barisic, and while the source of the story was dubious at best, with the Kent bid officially arriving, it’s clear Bielsa has interest in some of Rangers’ top assets, and following the bid from the midlands for our winger, we can probably expect to have to stave off something similar for our Croat star.

Bielsa has effectively got £160M in transfer funds – the Argentine fully intends to build this promoted sleeping giant into an English powerhouse again.

It will of course take years to do that, but he has the funds in place to make a bit of a start, and his reported interest in Barisic plus confirmed bid for Kent suggests he sees some of Rangers’ prize assets as a fine place to start.

It also highlights something else, which we will cover in a separate entry, but it’s safe to say Kent is definitely a wanted man down south and Rangers need to be wary about Barisic going the same way.

Barisic of course is still being monitored by a tonne of big European clubs, with Roma and Leeds the main two presently being mentioned, and that does mean that Rangers can certainly expect mammoth bids for his services, given his current form too, otherwise he too goes nowhere.

Interesting times at Ibrox.

  1. The main concern is however not delivering this Title . We need both to do that , but Rangers are a business but without this title it’s going to hurt Rangers more than just financial .

  2. The fact is that in the next 12 months, by the season starting after the Euros, we will likely lose Kamara and Barisic, Aribo and Morelos. Added to losing Defoe, Davis and Arfield to pensions, that rips the guts out of our team particularly the midfield, making the sale of McCrorie and Docherty even more baffling.
    I hope SG has a couple of aces up his sleeve.

  3. My concern would be losing all or most of Morelos, Kent, Barisic and Kamara. Sure we’d have a lot of money in the bank but our team would be decimated and our title chances with it. Retaining McCrorie and Docherty may have given us a couple of useful squad players but they would not win us the league.

  4. Why don’t I hear Celtic having to put up with these unsettling, destructive bids. Ir do they have better security than us?
