Barcelona asks for him, Boca say he is the best Striker in the world and worth 20m. Genoa ask for him, Boca say he is an okay Striker worth 3.5m.

Whenever Barca ask for someone, he suddenly becomes the best in his position and is worth ten times his normal price. I hate it when crap teams think their star players are the best like Shakhtar with Dymitro or Depor with Felipe Luis.

We are the worst negotiators in the world. Both buying and selling.

The problem with Barca is that they highlight their desire, need, want for another club's player as well as showing their disfavor for their own. Other clubs/agents take advantage of this shortcoming, leading to those unrealistic asking price
