Was referring to possibly agreeing to terms with Thiago but waiting until the 11th hour to make an actual bid to save some pennies

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

In a situation where the player holds all the leverage of either sell me to X or I'm signing with them in January and running out my contract, being left with the combination of going to Pool or United is a weird one. Either Thiago is a weird dude or one of those clubs is already drawing dead on him.

Dutch media is saying that Wijnaldum wants a new contract with Liverpool and I think they'd go for Thiago only if Gini left since they're nittier than most. Then again it's a lock that Barca is willing to pay him something ridiculous that Pool would never go for so idk.

it's not about people's opinion on him, these are his stats. this is how his last 2 years at RM look like. it's not like the youngsters replacing him have better stats, but at least they bring something to the table while they gain experience. Tottenham fans should hope he stays less than 4 months injured in total to begin with, forget about goals and all that. It will be pretty funny when Mourinho will throw him under the bus tho.

He was fine when you bought him. Not his fault you didn't read the instructions and broke him

There's something wrong with a guy who prefers golf to the madrid night life.

he's a teetotaler. That's a lifestyle I will never understand, but that explains maybe his preference for the links instead of a tapas crawl

I saw a guy on the Chelsea subreddit comparing Kovacic to David Silva based on, among other cherry picked stats, "number of headed clearances".

Played 4 games since Feb and expect him to be instantly match fit as well. No wonder he was subbed at HT.

Its very, very rare players have 2+down years then get back to being quality. Falcao the only recent example I can think of.

I'm having doubts about this tbh, I don't think 4 months will be enough. The guy has been been injured 23 times while playing on avg. 26 games/season for RM. And he's 31 now lol. Can't believe Florentino will pull this off.

Seems like the common opinion is that this is the type of deals we want you to make. Reguilon and Höjbjerg is what worries me as they seem like great deals.

It's still less than Arsenal paid for a year of David Luiz.

Why is your benchmark Arsenal? We are terrible at this.

Auba was healthy and yet played one FA Cup match before the semis - doesnt that tell you what the FA Cup is?

Playing against much weaker sides until Sheff Utd. Everyone wants to win trophies.

David Luiz deal was objectively bad with the sums thrown around.

Bale feels the same, but I'm in the minority thinking that.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Wonder if Wijnaldum stays now.

I like the Under move by Leicester. They're the only good club without a top winger and he has top potential even if I think he had a down year last season.
