Whoever we've sent to meet them is overly friendly with Almiron's (I presume?) agent.
My thoughts too.

Would probably be player liaison or member of scouting team most would have close relationships with agents

No no.

Almiron has got it going on.
He's all we want and we've waited for so long.
Baby can't you see, you're just not the girl for me.
I know it might be wrong but I'm in love with Almiron.

(Stacy's Mom, obv).

Get it on.
Bang a gong.
Almiron

Do we still do that thing where we announce big signings really late on in the evening to piss off the print media?

If this lad does sign, does that mean Rafa stays after the summer? Would MA really give him £20m to spend on one player if he's leaving in a few months time?
No. £20m really isn't that much money in football anymore.
True its not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but given our transfer record it is a massive amount of money.

This would suggest big signings were a regular occurrence <scratch>

Agreed. Frankly if the Ciaran Clark/Baby Shark song didn't catch on then we've got no chance these days. When was the last time a player had a song, Ritchie?

Maybe that's really why we stopped making big signings - to really stick to to the media <roll>
