    João Schmidt to Atalanta is done on a fee. Defensive midfielder, very elegant and great passer, but he's so immobile that he can't tackle a 10y old kid.

    Do it, Juve. With that (additional) money coming in, it could make for a pretty damn interesting window at Bayern.

    Supposedly his club is holding out because they want to sell to a more "prestigious" club :laugh:

    I read it was because they want a higher sell-on fee. Wouldn't it be the opposite if that was the case? If a more "prestigious" (womp womp) club is offloading him it's more than likely because he flopped and the fee would be lower.

    Is he going to play over Nacho? Is Pepe leaving?

    The more stories about his transfer, the more I can understand why Eberl wasn't ready to make Onyekuru the hill he died on. He & his agent seem like a handful to deal with.

    Maybe PSG's contract offer will convince him to stay. I think he's only had a year on his current deal though.

    Isn't that what PSG paid for Lucas when they bought him?

    Agreed.

    Pepe's contract expires at the end of this month. He's gone. Nacho has had a great season and earned the CB3 spot. Vallejo returns after a couple of loan seasons and gets the CB4 spot. With Coentrao gone and Theo Hernandez in, the defense is set.

    Carvajal - Varane - Ramos - Marcelo
    Danilo - Vallejo - Nacho - Theo

    Time to sell Morata and James.

    Madrid is going to be even better on paper next year even if they sell James and Morata. Hopefully the other big spenders can make improvements as well.

    Chelsea should go for James as RF.

    I think Verratti's locked up until 2021 so no.

    About Lucas :
    Pretty much. Makes up (a bit) for their mistake.

    Yes, and what I was saying was that he's only played one year of that 2021 contract so far.

    That's great though. At least for them they don't take a loss. In the end like a loan.

    Oh sorry thought you meant he had one year left.

    So would Verratti change his mind if he got assurances about getting 1 or 2 big names in and trying - even more - to win the CL?

    I mean, tbh, PSG lost to Barca in a once in a hundred scenario, it's not like they're not a top side already.

    Could be.
    Or he could be fed up with Emery and the difficulty of attracting top stars with no league title and a CL failure.

    Bailly, Lindelöf and Rojo sounds like a good set of CDs. Of course Bailly and Lindelöf need to grow into the role, but could see that happening quite quickly in a Mourinho-organized defense.

    To me Smalling doesn't look comfortable under Mourinho. Jones is just injured too often. Blind isn't really a CD for a PL team. Fair enough to keep one of them around as a 4th choice though.

    Now I wonder what they will do with the left back.

    Everton are in for Jordan Pickford and seemingly willing to pay the 30 (thirty) million quoted as an asking price.

    Hopefully they sell Smalling. I'm sure there's an EPL that would way overpay for him. English, plays for the national team, athletic - give us all the money.

    Jones should be sold as well. Though I doubt there's major interest.

    Blind is a good squad player. Can play several different positions. While he may not be physical enough for DM or CB long term, he's plenty smart to play short term spots in those positions.

    Yea Blind is a great depth player. Can play LB CB or DM at around a mid table PL level.

    I like bailly, Rojo, and lidelof as the main CB setup. Blind and youngsters like Tuanzebe filling in case of injury or NT duty for Bailly.


    As for Everton and Pickford, I like him. I think he's got potential to be a 5-10 keeper in the world if he continues to develop.

    It's true. The club is owned by Qatar's Aspire Academy, and they want their prospects to go to big clubs. The top teams in Belgium all want Onyekuru as well but they don't stand a chance.

    Doesn't sound like that's what the player wants though, if he opted for West Ham over Arsenal. Strange situation.

    I mean, that's just a smart decision, not much more to read into it. :sarcasm:
