Brighton owner Bloom: We'll only sell stars for right price
Brighton & Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom has no concerns about the future of his young players.
The likes of Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister are being linked with moves away from the club.
While Brighton qualifying for the Europa League for next season may help them hold onto some players, Bloom knows that sales are a reality of being a historically smaller team within the Premier League.
He told talkSPORT: “It's been a tremendous season. Roberto [De Zerbi], the players and everyone involved has done absolutely superbly. We're so delighted to finish sixth this season, Europa League.
“Tonight we came against the best team in the world and matched them. Perhaps we were the better side over the 90 minutes which is just so brilliant for myself, the fans and for the whole city.
“We'll be able to compete on all levels next season even if we lose a couple of our star players. That happens at almost every club, we don't worry about these things and as long as we get the right price for our players they will sometimes go.
“That happens across the board, we're not at all worried about that and we look to come back stronger next season."
