Milan is doing what Inter did last season, we'll see what happens.
Andre Silva was chosen over Kalinić. Will be interesting to see how that works out.
Evilo. I don't think this is a rubbish rumor. The journalist has broken news before on this player, and PSG's new Sporting Director has signed this player before. I think there might be other clubs trying to sign this player though, contract is up in half a season, so club might be looking to sell.
BMG's offer for Traore is being reported by Bild to be 15M; they don't have great sources at Gladbach, but that seems like a reasonable sum for Gladbach to ante up for a young attacker. With Onyekuru seeming to have opted for the bigger wages of the EPL, I'm getting excited. I know he's very inconsistent still, but learning from Rafael & Stindl should help; and with Hazard and I.Traore both being very streaky as well BMG should be able to rotate through them riding the hot hand.
A little disappointed, but better for the player's development that he spurned Arsenal. Although West Ham is a bad choice because now his career will be derailed by injuries.
Chelsea and Gladbach have had done plenty of business recently, so it wouldn't surprise me. Hopefully we insert some sort of a buy-back clause, but wouldn't be the end of the world if there wasn't. I think he'll be a good player, but at least it's not like the De Bruyne situation where you just know it will blow up in your face.
As long as we don't sell them Christensen, I'm alright.
Di Marzio has tweeted out saying Verratti wants to join Barcelona but that PSG will offer him a renewal.
Apperantly Romero a beat writer for Barca has said Juve are not interested in Verratti
Valbuena to Fenebahce is done. Don't know the price yet.
Interesting to see what happens with Man Utd'd defense now that Victor Lindelof is set to join up. I would have to imagine that JM wants a E.Bailly-V.Lindelof partnership in the back considering he purchased both players. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones who are still very involved with the England set up (more Smalling lately) along with Marco Rojo and Daley Blind must be wondering which one(s) will be sold. Rojo & Blind can play wing back as well. Tony Valencia looks set to continue his RB first choice. Who knows what will happen with Luke Shaw, Darmian, the returning Varela and the younger kids like Borthwick-Jackson, Mensah (can play DM) and Axel Taunzabe...
8-1-1 formation. Park the Bus specialty.
Ha! Why not!
Lindelof Rojo Bailly
Valencia Smalling Jones Shaw
I dunno...it feels like Milan is doing it better.
Silva is legit, and then adding Musacchio, Rodriguez and KessiÃ© is also pretty big. They already had some pretty great young talent as well. Adding those, probably a few more, and no Europe this season I think they could make Serie A pretty interesting next season. They won't challenge for the title but a top 3 spot could be in sight.
Milan does have Europe. That's why they're adding these players. And to get CL there next season it's back to top four.
Yeah that's my bad; qualification and surely they'll make it. Still, these are very good buys IMO.
hey we just signed former England national team and Arsenal physio Gary Lewin so the whole squad just became permanently healthy obviously.
Calciomercato says Inter are meeting with PSG about Lucas Moura. Price tag is â‚¬40m.
I just don't see the attack quality to do so. The back line and midfield should be very nifty; but I need to see them make another move for an attacker before I start considering them for one of the CL spots; as Juve, Napoli, Rom should hold onto their spots; leaving the final place to be fought over by the Milan clubs, Fiorentina, Lazio, and the smaller clubs who could get hot and go on a run like Turin, Sampdoria, Atalanta, Sassuolo, etc.
Good business. Lots of talent and speed, but zero vision and lack of touch in the last pass.
He's worth about 10 million
In the current market, I could see him being worth 20-25M. His speed alone produces 10+ goals a season and is an asset.
But the guy isn't even aware of his drawbacks. He threw tantrums when being subbed or not started.
He's full of himself.
I liked when Blanc tried to make him progress, saying he needed to be better in the last 20 meters, not afraid of benching him.
Instead, he was Emery's most used player.
Inter trying to finally answer the age old quandry; who is a greater waste of pace, Gabigol or Lucas?
Count me among those still very skeptical of Milan. Fourth spot could be in reach for them I suppose. They're clearly a couple steps behind Roma and Napoli imo.
are all going to fight hard for that 4th place.
I don't see Roma falling to contending for 4th. Losing Spaletti is not great, but there was a huge gap between 3rd and 4th this year.
Atalanta is likely to get raided and bought apart. That has already begun of course.
