Stoke City are looking to get £30 million for goalkeeper Jack Butland from any interested parties according to The Sun newspaper.
Anything offered below that will be dismissed as Stoke look to cash in if they must sell one of their prized assets.
The amount is the same that Sunderland got for Jordan Pickford when he left the Stadium of Light for Everton and both keepers are very similar to each other and both will be travelling to Russia for the World Cup this summer.
Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both interested in gaining the services of Butland, Liverpool look to be going cold on a deal to take him to Anfield.
Although Stoke were poor last season in general before being relegated, Butland still proved himself to be a top-class keeper, saving the club from embarrassment on way more than one occasion.
Should Stoke sell Butland, Birmingham City will benefit to the tune of 20% of the sell-on fee.
£40M surely, fed up Stoke selling on the cheap and buying on the up!

This was one of the best purchases Pulis had ever made bcos he'd always use the club as a stepping stone. You have to get £40m.. at least!

If Pickford went for 30mill we have to be able to commanded a bigger fee! Especially if he’s No.1 in the World Cup – sick of us selling on the cheap
