@G27 I don't think Olmo got the move people were expecting.
He was as linked with Manchester United, the PL & Barcelona & ended up at RB.
At £2.50+ a share I think he's expensive & I certainly wouldn't buy in at today's price.
Lots of competition at RB too - if he doesn't hit the ground running & start scoring he could be dropped.
To be fair that is one side of the argument
But just for balance on the transfer to RB might be just the ticket, similar to Halaand, Sancho etc German football so often acts as a stepping stone to the Prem. As for the Bacra links, Barca already know enough about him being ex barca youth, all they could be waiting for is for him to show up in a decent league and it could be back on. As too could any move to the Prem. There is competition at RB, no doubt but no more then say had his move to Utd or Barca gone through, as it is now he would be under a lot less pressure to perform week in week out which is helpful for such a young player, but i do agree with ericalis sentiment, it is definitely sink or swim time and only time will tell on that.
I guess it will depend on how long an investment you are making, all i am saying is that it may not be wise to get rid now if in 18 to 24 months if he kicks on ti make 2.50 looks like a snip and for me there is plenty of scope both on the field and off the field for that to happen, not least FI's expansion into Germany where Olmo would easily represent one of the hottest youth prospects in the league, especially if you consider people like Havertz and Werner could well leave it soon.
anyway those were my thoughts as a long term holder
