Sangare to PSV for €9m looks good business - will be off to the PL in a couple of years for a decent profit.

That’s a nice signing...Sangare looks like he could be a real monster in a few years. Seemed liked the textbook Soton buy/flip for 7x. Surprised there wasn’t more interest in him.

Benjamin Mendy - £52m
John Stones - £50m
Kyle Walker - £47m
Eliaquim Mangala - £42m

Hmmmm....maybe not?

I thought the föötball quants didn't rate using statistics to evaluate central defenders?

Nice...looking foward to City having 80% possession against Newcastle with a hattrick from Big Andy. Good old English strength and power will have Pep scratching his bald head again.

Very strange situation that one, similar to the Kroos one. I'm convinced Bayern will eventually pay him. Can't see them letting him go for free next summer.

We were supposed to be in for him but were apparently too slow at pulling the trigger.

Sangare is a strange one. Very hyped, statsnerds seem to rate him and he was very cheap. It is weird to me that no team greater than PSV got him. Maybe he just isnt that good? Cant say i have watched him much.

PSV/Ajax are a great destination for up and coming young talent tho. They are easy to work with when you get a big offer in from a top clubs as well. Think that is a major appeal.

BREAKING NEWS

Manchester United have made a bid worth up to €100m (£91.3m) for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Dortmund have rejected the bid. United’s offer was for an initial €80m rising to up to €100m.

Sancho has not flown with the rest of the Dortmund squad for the German Super Cup in Munich against Bayern due to a “respiratory infection”. The player has tested negative for Covid-19.

Means we've most likely given up on Tarkowski, which is a shame. Still, happy with this if it goes through, even though it seems a lot of money.

I'm happy too. I wonder if Tarks' toe injury will clear up now.

^this. “But we tried to sign him in these challenging times”. That’ll be the excuse and we all see through it

Can we start a Woodward bingo card and make bets on who he spews on in the last few days of the window?

We're getting €11m for Kolasanic. Feel good about that.

I felt like receiving any money for him would just be an added bonus after getting his 120k/w off the books, but 11m is a huge W.

Yeah, €11m pays Ozil to play fortnight for most of the rest of the season.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

barkley to villa. excited for that one. very good window. hoping there is an option to buy at the end. was rumours that was the plan last week.

martinez, cash, barkley, watkins, traore. grealish new contract


best thing is, arsenal were sad to see martinez go. NF were sad for cash to go. Brentford were sad for watkins to go. Chelsea fans seem a bit sad for barkley to go. loltraore. But looks like were signing the right type of players

Think Emi showed why we were sad to see him leave.

Fully expect Villa to be safe this season, maybe aim at a top half finish? Safety for sure tho, which is all that is needed for the first few season to become an established EPL team.
