This transfer should only go ahead if it generates enough money to allow the caceres deal to go through.As well, he wont really be missed as a defensive midfielder cause yaya and keita are already there.However,if they dont sell him,then they should forget about signing caceres as that would stack the central defence too much and then somebody is going to complain about too little playing time.
