Transfer: - Summer Transfer News and Rumors Part III
Rumors about Eriksen signing a new 4 year contract with Spurs. Obviously would be pretty silly if he went to Spain to sit on the bench. RM not being convinced might kill this off before it starts.
Could see a Coutinho happening of course. I would be fine with that.
I really respect that he's willing to sign a new contract and not let it run down. But even if he isn't sold this summer and gets a new contract, I think the club would respect his wish and let him move elsewhere if say Real Madrid wanted him again later.
There are plenty of rumors out there about Leonardo trying to sign Rabiot back to PSG. Rabiot and Henrique can't stand each other.
BTW, the 3 reasons why Barca backed off from the contract with him are out :
1/ They signed De Jong.
2/ Rabiot refused to play 6.
3/ Rabiot's mom asked for more bonus.
Is Rabiot's mom still an issue? I thought he cut most professional ties with her?
Yeah since then he cut his (pro) ties with her. Probably not a coincidence.
Sounds like, unlike Barcelona with Coutinho, Real Madrid recognize that Eriksen isn't worth what it would take to get him.
I mean, I think he's underrated, but he's not a Real player.
All depends I guess. At his best Eriksen is good enough for any team in the world, but he probably isn’t consistent enough for RM. Could he be? Probably.
Better player than a lot of the offensive players currently playing at RM.
Apparently Real Madrid are going for Pogba instead of Eriksen?
Yup. And Ndombele seems to be their plan B.
And I’d assume Fernandes will be his replacement. I’d like to add Ndombele as well but I don’t think that will happen.
I think Eriksen strikes more on the lines of solid, underrated, not a lot of flash, and I don't know that it works for what Madrid want and need to do.
I think his type of talents get a bit lost in the shuffle there. Maybe he wants a new challenge, but i'm not sure there's a club who can or will realistically give it to him. I think Liverpool would fit his needs, but I don't think FSG wants to go raid Spurs, nor would Levy really let them.
So do these Eriksen news mean Zidane/Madrid mean business with Pogba?
Eriksen's outstanding. So, so, clever. His pace is about the only thing you could nitpick.
If he stays at Spurs, that's a gigantic win for that club.
If Spurs could keep Eriksen and add N’Dombele.... couldn’t care less about anything else happening then. Going from Wanyama/Dier to N’Dombele would be some upgrade. Keep the rest fit and the squad is very good.
Explaining why Arsenal now has smaller transfer budgets....
Arsenal to post first financial loss since 2002
Can't read the article without a 30 day trial but they used to rely on Barca over paying for the likes of Song/Cesc now they have Xhaka.
Don't think there's any chance we get Ndombele sadly.
But I generally agree that we need to get better at CM. We can't have Eriksen being forced to play as deep as he has many times this past season. He's far less effective in that role.
I don’t see why not. Obviously if RM are going all in or something, but there are only so many teams N’Dombele would choose over Spurs. And he knows Spurs have wanted him for a long time.
Not saying it is very likely, but Spurs surely got a shot.
About de Ligt, considering Raiola's tarack record, it's likely he'll try to get him to sign with another club so 3-5 years later, he can milk another huge transfer amount.
Considering all the football players that died recently, why couldn't this piece of shit be gone instead...
The long and short of it is that they had no players to sell and therefore had to operate at a loss while executives were taking money from the club again.
I think Auba may leave to China to do something about this.
Someone that is just doing his job has death wished upon him. wow
Yeah, that makes sense. This will get worse for Arsenal before it gets better. If they don't find new owners then they probably becomes Spurs 2.0
I'm an asshole. I hate Raiola. Deal with it. Also, compared to people are saying about refs these days in pretty much every team sport, that's light.
Yeah...I mean, I've never understood this kind of thing. Wishing injury or harm to someone over sports has always been mind boggling to me.
