Third is pay a big salary to a player who is very unlikely to be the right player, but nevertheless the contract strangles flexibility. Carle and Bouwmeester are examples of these guys.
What's weird is reportedly the Blues are interested in both the first and third options.
I'm pretty sure you've posted multiple times daily for about 10 days to 2 weeks how much you hate the idea of Bouwmeester and Carle. You've also made it perfectly clear why you feel this way and even though I may not 100% agree with your opinion, it still very much merits consideration.
