Coleman sets Boa price

Fulham boss Chris Coleman has admitted that the club would consider selling skipper Luis Boa Morte, if a huge offer was made for the Portugal forward. The 29-year-old has been linked with Spurs in the last few days, but Coleman says it would need an extraordinary bid to prise Boa Morte away from the Cottagers. He said: "The message to Spurs or anybody else interested in our captain is if they're seriously interested they have to make a serious offer. "A serious offer for Luis Boa Morte isn't £5million. We haven't had an offer that's anywhere near what his price is. "If they are interested in him they'll have to pay. The price would have to be big to lose a player of Boa's class. "If someone offered a staggering amount of money for Boa, then I'd have to ask the chairman how much can I have back to invest in other players. "From a football side I wouldn't want to sell him at any price, but I have to tell the chairman what has been offered. "We could maybe invest in two or three new players with the money, but it would have to be a lot of money to sell Boa."
