He's just had surgery, awaiting surgery or recovering from surgery.

Only just seen that Sanchez at Man Utd is on £505k per week. That is absolutely scandalous!

The amount of money at the top flight is, as you say, scandalous.

The one thing about Sanchez (and any player who is effectively out of contract) is that the lack of a transfer fee means the player gets the money.

Effectively Sanchez, costs the same over the next three years as the Van Dyke transfer fee

This rather crept under the radar last year, I don't understand why in most other sports the onus is on the athlete, whilst in football its the clubs responsibility and violations are met with a tin pot fine and no sanction?

Only coming up today as Sanchez seems to have missed one yet the media are just reporting 'yeah, whatever'?

This is the bloke who owns Mansfield. Obviously a kindred spirit with Fatty.

Chelsea paying £18m for a player on an 18th month contract just seems odd, he will be free to negotiate to leave on a free in 12 months time...

They do desperately need him. I imagine they can trigger a final year depending on success. isnt it also 6 months remaining and not 12? A good year minimum from Giroud is still a good price at £18 todays rates.

Giroud is a quality player, and was massively under used at Arsenal.

Absolute bargain in today’s prices, great scoring record at Arsenal considering a lot of his appearances came off the bench.

Swansea paid more for that Ayew from West Ham, fair play Chelsea

At 18 quid I'm disappointed we didn't have a whip round to gazump them with a 25 quid deal stealer.

Nice to see Harry still hasn't lost his touch to cause financial mayhem at every club he manages...

This piece gives an unappealing insight into the nature of modern football club ownership. Will cross-reference it on the thread about Power's ownership as I think it's very pertinent in there too.
