Is the price right?

Is the price right?

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has spoken at length on the ongoing Arron McLean saga, and named his price for the much sought after hotshot.

'Let's get real here for a minute. Apart from Ronaldo, Aaron scored more goals last season than any other striker in England and Scotland, and Wolves want to buy him for less then a couple of million pounds?

Yet, the same club valued a player who has scored only 10 goals in 50-odd games (Lafferty at Burnley) at £3.25 million!' he has said.

Not sure we ever raised our bid as high as that, but you can see his point.

He goes on to explain execatly what it will take to prise McLean away from Peterborough's grasp.

'I told Barry Fry that the terms of £3 million cash and another £2 million with add-ons was the official price, end of story.'

Mclean has turned down an improved contract offer, and looks set to leave Posh if not now, then probably in January.

But that in no way puts Wolves in the driving seat.

Having already signed Sam Vokes, and with a glut of strikers currently on the books, McLean would be fighting first for a place on the bench, then in the tsarting line up, a situation that may not be to his liking as Wolves have found with players before.

McLean would be a superb addition to Mick McCarthy's squad, but I'm beginning to get the feeling that the timing and current situation just isn't right.

Competition for two striking places is a good thing, but not for the players on the fringe unless McCarthy intends to install a squad rotation system that spreads out the seasons' games amongst all, something I just can't see.

Dreams of a McLean- Ebanks Blake partnership may have to remain just that.

Peterborough aren't short of a few quid so will not allow him to go unless they really get top cash for him.
