I'm a Villa fan. Once he leaves he's just another player, and I don't want any player not playing for Aston Villa to be successful.
As for the price... He's an exceptionally good player. People don't accept that he is because he plays for an unfashionable side who they don't watch and hasn't scored tons of goals, but his ability is absurd. He creates obscene numbers of chances (in a weaker side), his ability on the ball is genuinely world class, he's skillful and tricky, he has good vision. He's worth the price tag, and more, genuinely. He's more than just a foul buying machine.
When he goes suddenly he'll be watched by more people, 'cos he pays for Citeh, and suddenly he'll be a generational talent who is one of the world's best. But the reality is, he's playing at that level now. But he does it for Aston Villa, who finished 11th in the league, who nobody cares about. He's the most talented player I've seen play for Villa, and it's more special that he's also a local boy and fan who came through the academy.
Besides that, he's a growing brand in his own right. I genuinely expect him to be marketed as the Citeh Beckham going forwards.
But once he goes, he's nothing. And I'll be hopeful he fails, like any player at any other club.
