Why Reo Hatate won’t be sold on the cheap

Reo Hatate is the latest Celtic player to be linked via Daily Mail with a reunion with Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham, the other of course being his fellow countryman Kyogo.

Just like Kyogo, the club have the ball firmly in their court regarding Reo Hatate’s contract situation. Kyogo of course has two years still to run on his current Celtic deal while Reo Hatate has three years to go. So any interested club will need to cough up big bucks to make the club even think of selling either one of them.

I’d put Reo in the same bracket as Kyogo, which would be around the £25 million mark. It’s not delusional to think so as they are both quality players and quality players don’t come cheap, especially in the overpriced land of the EPL.

Players of lesser ability of Kyogo and Reo have gone for more down south, so it’s only a fair valuation. We don’t want to lose them, but as we know all too well, everyone has their price, but any interested club will have to pay the going rate.

Reo just like Kyogo is a class act and deserve to be treated as such, and class acts come with high price tags. If it’s not met by any clubs sniffing around, it will be a case of thanks but no thanks, dig deeper in your pockets. The club is in control in this situation. I fully expect them to act this way.
