John, I would be astonished if PSG, RM or Bayern come in for Richarlison. He's a very good and totally committed player, but not a "top top" one.

He scores a goal every 234 minutes, or. 36 per 90 minutes -- good, solid, but unspectacular. By comparison, Kane scores every 123 minutes, Salah every 132.

Rich is also not at all a creator -- in 152 appearances for us, he has only 14 assists.

He could go to a Leverkusen, or a Marseilles, or a Roma. With his ferocious competitiveness, I can see Simeone coming in for him to replace Suarez at Atletico.

But he doesn't have the sheer talent to interest PSG or Barcelona.

Mike, those stats are effectively meaningless when you compare who those other players play for.

In a better team Richarlison would score far more than he does for us. A lot of his goals for us are one he’s had to create himself through sheer determination simply because his team mates don’t create a lot of chances for him.
