    Yeah I know. It's that I feel he'll flourish in that league mainly.

    I'm thinking the CR7 transfer turned out to be a mistake for you guys.

    Juve had a great core with Dybala and Douglas Costa supplying Higuain in the middle. If they just invested in a midfield last year, they would've been better off.

    Now they're looking into these short term moves to desperately win a CL, but I wouldn't even put them among the top 3 favorites after them. At the rate it is going, it will not be long before Inter are back challenging for Serie A again.

    See below. He’s rejecting manu even with their pedigree and astronomical wages. But he’s going to accept Valencia?

    Liverpool should win the Premier League before they talk about our lack of a Champions League

    Well, we did see Betis make an ambitious signing like Fekir. Valencia are not a team without history either. Beautiful city, food women and a pretty good team. They have been spending more the last two summers and it's not like their owner is poor.

    ... But since Juve are somehow fixated on Lukaku, it doesn't give him that option unfortunately. Poor guy is getting screwed over hard.

    I'm just saying, I'd fight for my place at Juve a la Bale at Real instead of joining a trainwreck like Man Utd.

    The biggest mistake was buying Higuain when the biggest need was midfield when you lose Pogba, Vidal, and Pirlo in one transfer market.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the Ronaldo deal because of his age and price. A crippled Ronaldo is still ten times the player Higuain is. Did we absolutely need Ronaldo? No, not really.

    If the Dybala/Lukaku and the Cancelo deal goes through I am throwing any champions league hopes out the window. Right now we are definitely not top three maybe top five. I wish they would more emphasis on the Midfield. I am not fully sold on Ramsey because of his injury problems. They should do everything they can to get Pogba or SMS.

    This has to be the most idiotic way of stopping Inter from getting Lukaku. It's too bad Inter didn't buy him fast enough. ManU should pay teams to take him.

    I think everyone called that Higuain move a ploy to weaken the rival team...

    It did secure them 2 more Serie A titles as a result.

    Fekir and dybala are not on the same stage at the moment. Valencia’s owner isn’t poor but have they dished out 100 million on a player? Even then they’re going though some issues as we. Speak with their director and coach may be leaving. Hell just a year ago Valencia was a bigger train wreck then manu.

    Bale isn’t fighting for his spot he’s fighting for his wages.

    Who from 2003-04 is left doing Arsenal’s transfers? Not sure how this is relevant. Liverpool’s current front office contributed to their last major trophy. Not sure Arsenal can say the same so I’d say it stands to reason Liverpool knows what they are doing

    Not talking about transfers at all, talking about fanbases.

    I saw a rumor on reddit that said there was a team from the EPL that offered a year long loan for Coutinho with an obligation to buy next year. So that would go along with that.

    This is an interesting stance to take given Liverpool have won many more league titles than Arsenal (we don't even need to discuss Europe).

    Obviously, but it was still a stupid move considering the amount of money we threw at him.

    How is any of this conversation relevant? Arsenal fans don't have the right to say United overpaid for an average defender in Maguire? Like I know there's been one Arsenal fan in particular setting everyone else off, but there's no need to get into a pissing match with the rest of us.

    I agree with the general sentiment that its ok to overpay to get "your guy", but United significantly overpaid for an average defender. There were other options that would have been just as much of an upgrade for cheaper.

    Actually sounds pretty logical to me. City shouldn't sell Sane for under 120M.

    Unless this was all just a ploy with Juventus just to make sure Lukaku to Inter didn't go trough knowing this transfer could potentially not go through because of the imaging rights.

    I'm not saying he was the right guy, I was just comparing it to the Kepa situation. Kepa performed above what some people on here expected out of him. Still overpaid, but as a Chelsea fan I don't care. I'd rather overpay on him than what we did with Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Zappacosta, Morata, etc.

    What I'm saying is this, if he's quality, then price doesn't matter, that would be a Kepa situation. If he sucks, then yes, it's awful, and that would be a Morata situation. I'd still prefer my team to swing for the fences instead of buying an inferior player just to have a fair priced deal.

    The biggest difference for me is this - Cheslea overpaid for Kepa at the time, but there was still room for him to develop into a top GK over the next few years. United is overpaying for Maguire, who I think is mostly a finished product at this point, and I think most people agree with here.

    I would assume a Hamez Rodriguez to Bayern type loan. Comparable players.
