Yeah but neither Fletcher, Anderson or Cleverly are world class.
They were Sneijder's demands last time (unless you've spoken to him recently?), I bet they'd be able to negotiate much harder this time simply because of his age and the lack of CL football he'll be getting. He was just an example anyway, there's a few midfielders they could go for.
Players like Fletcher are never world class , but they don't need to be . Desailly / Makelele etc.
