if he wants out and gerrard is going to have Digne as number 1 anyway then lets get 20 mil or whatever in and allow gerrard to spend it on a player who will be a first team regular. good opportunity for one of the young players to play understudy too or third choice but integrated into squad.
Then that will be valuable information for SG. We'll know those who are ambitious, and those who aren't. The ones who aren't will be bombed out due to lack of character. Say what you want about Stevie, he's never come across as anything other than ambitious, and as Fergie used to say, the team reflects the manager.
