Let's change that to Saul by himself.
Spain just getting going now
That kid is pretty good. I wonder which of us geniuses got to draft him.
Ceballos should be due for a move to a top club after this tournament.
3 for Saul
Trade him to me so I can pair him with Asensio
Saul mega bid incoming after this tournament.
Saul is good man.
Saul is good but Italy flat out sucks. They were lucky they got this far.
Unless he signed a new contract Ceballos release clause is only Ã‚Â£13m.
What the f*** was that lineup? Bringing Philipp on was a good idea, but taking Dahoud off with Haberer coming on instead of Amiri? That's beyond re****ed. Also, Weiser should've played at RB with Philipp on the RW; and Jung? Why? He's terrible. Kehrer may be inexperienced but he or Anton are clearly better options than Gideon f***in Jung.
I swear this coach is trying to make it harder on the kids than it needs to be.
Yes but who drafted him last draft?
Atelti can't sell this window but when they can Barca get first option.
Gonna be a nice player for some club with no Catalans or Basques.
Yeah, they really haven't impressed as a team this tournament. With many of the best eligible players at the Confed Cup vs. a pretty much fully stacked Spain, I think they are a pretty clear underdog.
It would bring Barca back to the top. I mean they're all beasts defensively and Saul/Verrarti can provide offence.
Do Barcelona have 150 million to afford Saul and Verratti? Or the ability to negotiate either of those deals? For obvious reasons I have my doubts.
I always loved Saul I'm actually surprise that he is just now finally getting recognition.
I think you exaggerate how depressed his offense is by playing for Simeone. I wouldn't count on offense from a guy who scored 8 total goals all season playing full-time.
Saul is a very good player but there are a number of areas where he is not exactly a top player or worth breaking the bank for because he occasionally scores a total golazo if you're Barca.
He has had recognition for a while actually. Someone on here started a thread asking "How good is Saul Niguez?" a couple years ago and ever since then people talk about him as an elite midfielder.
It would be in different windows. As for ability I'm not sure what you mean by that.
I remember when we discussed him a couple of years ago. Can say I'm definitely wrong on him. Thought he was average now I haven't watched the U21 but the past 1.5-2 years he's clearly a class midfielder.
He's scoring at a similar clip to Xavi. You don't judge midfielders based on goals scored. They offence they provide as to be analyzed by watching the games not stats. I mean how many assists are Iniesta/Xavi are credited for? Guys like Navas provide more assets if you go based on just numbers.
Just look at who their board goes to buy in addition to this tapping up accusation. As well as who they let leave.
For obvious reasons I have my doubts that Barcelona's board and negotiators are remotely capable of one such transfer let alone two.
That's pretty much my point. Now he's getting all the hype after this game BECAUSE he scored those goals. No one would ever point to Xavi's scoring contribution as the reason for his greatness and he's nowhere close to Xavi level in other areas. Sure, few mids ever are, but from watching his all-around game, he does have some deficiencies that limit his potential compared to other midfielders his same age. Specifically his passing is suspect sometimes, and his ability to control the game strategically is nowhere close to best in the world level. If I were Barca, I'd be willing to pay a huge fee for Verratti. Not for Saul.
I hate this board as much as the next guy but Bart did manage to secure the likes of Suarez. Also he might not be in charge for much longer. Who knows though.
Well haven't watched the game nor his goals but this always happens a player scores on the big stage then the hype is unleashed however, his class has been proven over the past year or so.
No one got my joke?
Breaking Bad? Better Call Saul??
He has proven himself. But nowhere near the quality of Busquets or Verratti.
Think Ceballos is better than Saul.
Not yet, but maybe pretty soon.
I would say Saul's the best player there at this moment and Asensio has the most potential. But those three players are better than any other player brought to this tournament.
