    The fee was much lower than first reported though which will disappoint Hajduk who get something like 3% of the cut :D The first reports were 9m pounds now its officially at 2m

    Badelj's agent says the player wants to leave Fiorentina in the summer, destination is likely upper level La Liga club (obviously not the top 3). EPL is possible but I don't think he's a fit for that league, slow and not tough enough to play as a CM

    Not sure if this was mentioned previously but, according to Sport, Ilkay Gundogan told Barca he will be joining Man City in the summer.

    Well played, BVB, well played.

    I like this trend of teams/players showing up papers.

    Sport has always been wrong about BVB affairs in the past. Said Klopp was going to Madrid, Reus and Gündogan to Barca. I don't think they have a source but City is a plausible destination for him unfortunately.

    [L’Équipe] PSG have decided that they will sell Serge Aurier in the summer & could be available for a cut-price around €15m-€20m.

    Love BVB's twitter. Wish more big clubs shot down rumours every now and then

    Yup, seems like a good fit for Pep's future City team. He's been linked to Barca as well but they're loaded with midfielders right now, and are pretty cash strapped, atleast after they acquire a quality CB and maybe a RB + forward in the summer.

    Not sure yet, Blanc has seemed much less definitive today in his press conference.

    How are Hadjuk getting a cut of any Jelavic transfer? He played for them seven clubs ago.

    Not really.
    I think he's torn between "get the **** out of here" and "well I've made blunders too (of different kind), let's give him another chance".
    Problem is the image. Blanc and El-Khelaifi don't want to look weak.

    As for replacing Aurier, you can't. He's IMO the best RB in the planet, at the very least second behind an old Alves. They obviously stand a much better chance to win the CL with Aurier than with any other RB in the world.

    With the season Alves is having, which has been up and down, I wouldn't imagine him to be the best RB on the planet. Last season definitely. That said I feel as though the position is lacking of late. Still Aurier is definitely one of the best and IMO he looks the best RB for the future at the moment.

    An Aurier/Vidal combination would be great for years were Barça to get him. I just don't see him leaving PSG though, especially if Blanc is serious.

    I feel it's 50/50. PSG's president is obsessed with PSG's image and he hates players making waves.
    L'Equipe reports Aurier is as good as gone, but I'm not sure. Blanc doesn't like VdW defensively much (no kidding) and Marquinhos offensively (clearly a step below Aurier in that department).
    Blanc himself was caught in a big PR nightmare a few years ago with his talk about black players in youth categories. While not comparable with insulting teammates and coach, he still does know that sometimes media can be a nightmare when you're caught off-guards.

    Enrique still insists on bringing in Nolito so that should be a done deal in the summer window. Price was originally set at about 18M, but it could move down a bit less than that (according to Sport).

    Shouldn't a new thread be made since the summer window is over?
