I really don’t see much difference. Both are playing more and under different coaches., but you can’t accept Vitinha might be worth more, yet Kilman clearly is.

This isn't what I've said. I've said that if we didn't think he was worth 15m less than 6 months ago having a massively in depth Knowledge of the player, I'd be concerned if we suddenly paid 10/15m more on the basis of him doing exactly what he was capable of at the time we could have done so.

Similarly, if we'd sold Kilman prior to the season starting, he'd gone somewhere and played like he has, I'd be similarly concerned about our collective ability to judge players.

Fair enough. It doesn’t look great that we didn’t take the option and ended up short in midfield and might now address it at a much higher price. I suspect for that reason alone we’ll look at other targets, if we look at any of course.

Agreed on the last point, also that he probably wouldn't have come in and made a huge difference now which is what Lage has repeatedly said he wants.

Depends on your faith on ANO turning up and how good he is. The concept is great, but... (I'd play Semedo over RAN)
He’s the missing pieces of the jigsaw - guess one ANO was Sanches, but that boat may have sailed, and the other was Botman - ditto.

I think I'd be happy with a genuine midfield option.

Being able to switch between 2 or 3 in midfield would be enough for me.

I just don't see us being able to switch to 4 at the back this season
