    Felix will be there 2-3 years at least.
    I actually see City buying him, he would fit right in (as long as Pep stays)

    City will be the only team that can afford him

    The Felix buy just looks fantastic right now and is a move that benefits both the player and the team. Happy that Barcelona were just too enamoured with Griezmann to make that buy.

    PSG sells Neymar for 200m to Barca or real and they could do it.

    United sell Pogba for 150 and they could do it.

    Real have about 19 attackers they could sell to get some money.

    Barca sell Coutinho and Umtiti for a combined 125 or so.

    I’m not saying all those will necessarily happen, or that he’d agree to go (especially to United) I’m just saying finances/release clause isn’t going to keep him at Atletico.

    Also, I don’t think Atletico will *want* to flip him, but if a team pays the release clause and offers him 400k/week it’ll be awfully hard to reject.

    If you are interested in signing a striker just hijack a deal that atletico are trying to make.

    Torres
    Aguero
    Forlan
    Diego Costa
    Villa
    Mandzukic
    Griezmann
    Felix

    Sounds like Neymar returning to Barcelona is closer than ever, according to RMC/Bouhafsi. Neymar wants to come back to Barça, and PSG are more receptive to a potential player+cash deal, with the player being Coutinho.

    Meh, closer than ever doesn't mean close. Also, even if the two clubs agree that deal I see one potential roadblock. Coutinho agreeing that deal.

    Like I've said, I don't want Neymar back. Yet while Coutinho has been loyal, I don't think one can reject the opportunity to do the swap so long as not too much cash is involved.

    Not sure what you mean by Couts being loyal but I wish he was loyal to LFC. Woud've avoided this mess.

    My point is he's done nothing to leave. That's all. That said his reaction to the supporters was IMO not good and he's had more than enough support.

    Coutinho convinced himself that moving away from Liverpool was worth it for Barcelona only.

    I do not think he ever projected himself out after one and a half year. I can see him being livid and not want to give away his "dream" move yet. Even if he is a backup.

    I feel old. I just can't stand Neymar (not talking about him as a person - I wouldn't know - but how he behaves as a player). Wouldn't even get excited if he was coming to Spurs. He is just too much.

    I know the world is moving away from what is probably just me romanticizing the past, but I still prefer proper football players without all the drama. One of the reasons why I generally love Finnish hockey players (might be more drama that I know about - due to me not understanding their language - but ignorance is bliss).

    When it comes to attitude I just can't help agreeing with the likes of Souness and Keane (even if I will never condone their nasty streaks as players).

    I'm surprised that Barcelona would want him back after he left the way he did. He's a brat. He won't necessarily make them better either.

    He plays like he doesn't want to be here. So I don't think that's it at all.

    Strange to see them going after so many other club "scraps". I can see Coutinho fitting in well in Bayern though

    Superstars don't sign anymore with Bayern. After the Sane deal fell through and the smart singings of BvB the are simply desperate, I think.

    Pretty much this...it'll be up to the player not the team. If one of the top clubs comes in (not that Atletico are a minnow or anything) willing to pay the release clause and he wants to go they can't really do anything about it except shoot a lawsuit.

    Josep Pedrerol (Real Madrid mouthpiece) says Neymar is close to returning to Barcelona.

    Interesting.

    I still remember watching him in the Belgian league, before Everton bought him, and thinking that he has the ability to be a very good goalscoring winger. Haven't seen much of him since but it looks like he had a decent season in Turkey.

    Many expected him to have a great season at Anderlecht the season after Everton bought him from Eupen. But he disappointed (even if his numbers were actually not that bad) he was even benched towards the end of the season I believe and the Anderlecht coach basically called him a dumb player, saying he didn't understand the tactics and that he never ran were he was supposed to run :D

    edit: also, Valencia have signed Mangala from City

    Man, Mangala looked the part of an elite CB physically, too bad he has no brains to put it all together consistently.

    Sneijder now retires officially as well. One of the greatest mids of his generation and one who should've won the Ballon d'or in 2010, though I am a bit biased being a huge fan of his. Don't think I've ever seen a player who had so much power and accuracy in both his feet. Still showed flashes of brilliance in his final years for Galatasaray and Oranje, but his time with Nice and Qatar confirms it's a wise decision.



    I'd rank 'm:

    1) Arjen Robben
    2) Wesley Sneijder
    3) Robin van Persie
    4) Rafael van der Vaart
