    When was the last time Colombia had a good defender? I've heard many good things about him, but I'd do my homework before throwing 40M on a colombian defender :D

    Sánches has been linked to Barcelona just as much.

    I hope he stays. Being fan of Ajax can be so frustrating. Even the slightest succes in Europe could mean an entire squad overhaul.

    Well, Sánchez is legit. And Yerry Mina also is a terrific CB, probably going to Barcelona next season. Colombia's CB future is looking good.

    I've been watching a lot of Ajax games since they acquired Neres. This team is fun to watch, but a lot of key pieces probably gonna leave this summer which sucks.

    There's been some rumors about Klaassen going to Everton, too. It's a shame cause they have such a good and young team that they could pull a Monaco if they kept this team together for some years.

    I think this season proved he's not good enough for any of those. Just 6 goals and 2 assists in 33 games. Everton seems like a team that could use him.

    Had a drop off just like Hazard did last season after winning PFA; and Hazard has better teammates (not saying he is as good as Hazard, just giving context).
    And I'm sure he is better than Ox

    And Mahrez had a good UCL campaign

    Not sure he's better than Ox, but I think Mahrez will also cost at least 10m more. Of course I would take him as backup after seeing what happens when Mane gets hurt, but the fee would be too much.

    I don't think Mahrez would be interested in Liverpool tbh

    Mahrez had a great season last year, but he shouldn't have won PFA. Kante should have, he was their best player last year in my opinion, and I watched almost all their games.

    Good player, and he'll do well in the right situation, not not a key player for a long term contender.

    I see Mahrez as a potential steal that will play very well for a team where he isn't relied upon as much.

    Everton makes sense, especially if they lose Lukaku. Not the same position, but would be a good risk/reward move for them to get an impact player. I'm not really sure if any of the true big clubs would be interested unless he is priced much lower that he was prior to this past season.

    Hazard was brought up earlier, but at least Hazard had a track record prior to his awful 15/16 season. Mahrez could turn out to be a 1-hit wonder.

    Mahrez Is a fantastic player. He'd do very well with a team like Chelsea in EPL, Barcelona in La Liga or Milan in Calcio. Not sure I see a fit for him in Germany. I don't see him going to France unless it's PSG. With that bone head of a manager they have he won't use him correctly.

    FIFA has known about the details of this transfer since August. They want to look into this now because the details were leaked to the press? Same old FIFA!!!

    I don't think United nor Juventus did anything wrong though. This 3rd party ownership is disgusting. Agents are disgusting in general.

    Wages are too high for Barça B even if they do get promoted.

    Ah! I'd say you would be pleasantly surprised if he joins Barca. He's a very good player. Good joke though

    I think Everton is more interested in Gylfi.

    Several reports in Belgian media today that Monaco are willing to pay €15m for Genk's Sander Berge

    He's a 19 year old defensive midfielder from Norway. Genk bought him in January for €2m after they sold Ndidi to Leicester, and he's been fantastic. Very intelligent player, great physique and technique.

    Yeah, as much as he was maybe overhyped last year, his drop in performance probably has him undervalued right now. I could easily see him raising his game a lot again under the right circumstances

    Did I get that right that he's a CB? If so, that's probably just name-dropping with Bayern. We have Hummels, Boateng, and Martinez and are already bringing in Süle. With the actual openings and needs we have elsewhere, I can't imagine us looking at any CB, let alone at that kind of pricetag.

    I wonder what will happen with Boateng though. Contract runs 4 more years, but apparently he's unhappy with his playing time.

    Mahrez isn't a starter for Chelsea right now, let alone Barcelona.
