Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Dias basically confirming the move to city after the match today. Sounds like it’ll be wrapped up fairly soon

6’2 defender is nice. Really need size in the team.

I don't understand why city and qsg haven't gone nuts in the market this summer.

Yeah their coach also confirmed it lol. Seems there are a few minor details to work out but it’s all but done. I’ll take it.

We're working on Neymar and M'Bappé extensions and keeping bullets for the Camavinga sweepstakes next summer.

So? You have all the money and your nemesis FFP has been relaxed for only a limited period afaik. Should be taking advantage.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

I don't know about ffp tbh, Leonardo doing business like it's still a thing anyway. I'd rather have us comply and not risking some bullshit like drawing dead to doing business next summer when there's a shitload at stakes.

Plus the last time Leonardo rebuilded our midfield we got three bosses for 10M a pop, we just need to tell Tuchel to gtfo with his buys, hopefully he lost at least that.

If we manage to get Aouar this will be a pretty good window all things considered.

I guess on that view, United repeatedly coming back and offering low amounts is more for show than anything else.
Some of the massive overpays have been directly his fault. Fellaini had a release clause and because he couldn't get deals done for any other CM he ended up paying like 10m more than what he could have signed him for a few weeks earlier.

Mourinho wanted Maguire and Woodward refused to fork out 50m, did he go to Maguire and his agent and say "listen don't sign anything because we'll be back for you next summer or in January" nah instead Maguire signs a new 5 year deal and when Woodward returns a year later is surprised to see Leicester now want 80m. He haggles all summer thinking he has some mysterious leverage and just ends up paying 80m.

We sold both Di Maria and Lukaku for the price we got them and I don't think we overpaid for Pogba given the market.

FWIW I think Sancho is worth 120m. His numbers are superb and looks like he will be an elite attacker for the next decade. It's much better to just pay for a premium talent than **** around signing guys at 30/40m and hope they bink. Also out wages represent only 50% of our turnover so we are in an incredibly strong position financially.

As bandit said this is the time because next summer, Madrid will go there’s €125m you want.
If Messi leaves next summer Barca will be looking to replace an entire front 3. I doubt new president gives much of a **** about Dembele. Sancho is elite and can play left or right in a 3. Benzema is 33 in a cpl months/Bale has been ostracized and the Madrid fans will have less patience for Hazard than Barca have for Dembele. When RITS said he expects them to spend 400m next summer I don't doubt it.

Not to mention that if Madrid do sign Mbappe from PSG then Sancho would surely be top of the list to replace him.

It's hard to see any scenario next summer where one or more of those clubs aren't in for Sancho.

I'm sure the defense will look miles better once Dias comes in and Laporte recovers. Still, not a great track record with the big defensive signings for Txiki. Not really sure he knows exactly what he's doing.

Joao Cancelo - £58.5m
Aymeric Laporte - £58.5m
Benjamin Mendy - £52m
John Stones - £50m
Kyle Walker - £47m
Eliaquim Mangala - £42m
Nicolas Otamendi - £35m
Danilo - £27m
Angelino - £11m

Don't forget Nathan Ake - £41m, who I think will end up playing most matches. Laporte may well end up at left back for a time.

They should just throw money at Alaba and sort the LB position out for a few years. Almost 60m for Cancelo is madness.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Thought Cancelo would be amazing...thought Mendy would be a hit too. For whatever reason, almost any of the fullbacks Pep throws out there never seem to look good.

sort of, yeah 68M, but then we signed Otamendi for 15, so it was pretty much the 55M + Otamendi that was reported

I remembersome Spurs fans being irate we sold Walker for £47m and were incandescent that we might also sell Rose and Dier for £50m a pop...

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Agree with FH. Cancelo has looked good when he plays. Certainly better than Kyle Walker who just runs like a moron all game

Mendy has been insanely bad. What a haul Monaco got for him. The LB need is dire.
