I think it was more a case of: "How much do Renault feel Kubica would be worth to them?", rather than: "How much does Kubica think he can get for driving for Renault?"

Imo Alonso wants Kubica as teammate at Renault who'll then give engines and the Hulk to Mclaren

Yep.

Time will tell, but I think Renault should try to get one of the new hot shoes fresh from F2 or Super Formula instead of Kubica. Ocon or Leclerc would fit very well.

Surely they are not all under contract with Mercedes?

Alternatively, Sainz or Kvyat, whoever leaves RB first.

Did Alonso say that?

Abiteboul, the Renault CEO, has said they were not chasing Alonso at all.

I think they are wary of him and he has a high price tag probably.

And at the moment, Hulkenberg is their best driver; it would be silly to drop him.

Palmer is on the move for 2018, more than likely replaced by a young driver,

I may be all wrong, but I don't think Kubica is in the picture for long term.

If Renault genuinely believes that Kubica can deliver a competitive performance, I would replace Palmer immediately (at least on a race by race basis) and see what he can do. It would generate huge publicity for the team and would be a dignified swan song for Kubica's F1 career. Longer term(2018) they need to sign an up and coming talent like Ocon.

It has been mentioned in another thread at some point, that apparently Jolyon Palmer brought some private sponsorship money to Renault (around £3M) , and this is maybe why they handle him with kids gloves now, instead of firing him immediately.
I suspect his contract will not be renewed next year.

Alonso is better off in a Renault engined McLaren than a Renault engined Renault. This doesn't make sense to me...

That is a small sum of money in F1, I heard is was more like 4 times that amount !!

Yes, possibly the figures are higher, I don't know.
But anyway that seems to be what keeps Palmer in his seat at the moment.
Maybe Renault doesn't want to upset that sponsor.
