Theory may explain why Everton paid insane money for Richarlison

It hasn't quite broken their transfer record yet, Gylfi Sigurdsson cost £45 million, but it's believed the fee could rise to £50 million with add-ons.

Juventus have forked out €100m (£89m/$117m) for a 33-year-old forward - albeit a rather outstanding 33-year-old in the shape of Cristiano Ronaldo - while Liverpool's £65m ($85.4m) outlay on Alisson marks the most ever spent on a goalkeeper; nearly doubling what Juve paid for the previous record-holder Gianluigi Buffon in 2001 when allowing for inflation.

Though the eye-watering fee was what grabbed the headlines and saw many claim the game has indeed gone, the Toffees were soon being derided for even considering buying a player of Richarlison's ilk, even if it appears they parted with a slightly lesser sum than those initial reports . It is a very big club, one of the biggest in England as I said.

The two clubs' relationship has still not been fully restored, but the fact they are willing to do business over Richarlison - on whom they will make nearly a £30m profit in 12 months having bought him from Fluminense last summer - suggests things have improved.

Watford have reignited proceedings against Everton in a brazen demand for compensation over Marco Silva.

He lost the Republican primary, meaning he'd be out of office in November anyway - so this is merely accelerating his departure. In a statement Monday, Spencer apologized for the "ridiculously ugly episode", but he initially refused to step down.

He added: "I developed really well with him while he was with me at Watford". I moved here because of him. It was really good working with him and one day I believe he can help me to be selected for Brazil in the full national team. "The ones on the pitch were the players, not him".

A summer off from competitive football will also help.

The 21-year-old has followed his former Watford coach to Merseyside in one of the Premier League's biggest transfers of the summer so far. Fully rested and recuperated, a similar slump will not be tolerated this time around. Richarlison outperformed many of his Everton counterparts in key attacking aspects last season, although using Everton players as a benchmark based on the 2017-18 campaign sets a very low bar indeed. Five goals and four assists last season struggles to justify this outlay on a player brought to the Premier League for £11.5 million less than a year ago.

However, journalist Rob Vera has an interesting theory which suggests that Everton made a decision to offer the Hertfordshire club such a high fee for Richarlison in the hope that it might smooth over the compensation dispute over Silva.
