Unless Comolli has something concrete lined up, it would be lunacy to allow a player, however out of favour they may be, to leave. We got dicked twice last season, on the Mascherano deal and on Torres - both falling in the latter period of the window leaving little time to adequately replace.
In bound transfers, by all means bring em on. But our outbound business, unless it is the likes of Degen, Poulsen and Mr Cole, should now be done. If they come calling again in January after we've twatted them and they've had time to consider the mistake of offering such a shit fee, the club can consider /dismiss at its leisure.
Raul should stay as a valued squad option.
