About time we get this started.
Hope Arsenal buys Draxler!
Hope Dortmund buys Toprak
or some better medical staff
Liverpool hopefully buys at least one winger.
Weigl to Man City.
Almost too obvious to be a real rumor.
I'd want that price more than tripled before I consider it. I want about 72M pounds, which is just over what Martial was sold for, taking into account the add-ons. They could do the same initial fee and add-ons for the Martial deal and then add on 1M to each because we should want more than what Martial went for. If they want to match that price, you let him go.
20M pounds is an offer to laugh at.
You won't see 70+ million pounds that's ridiculous. Martial as overpriced as he was is a forward, that's where the big bucks are spent.
Pogba was an anomaly and clearly a dumb one.
Then we'll keep our best player. We don't need to sell him.
I mean if you haven't figured it by now you won't ever but your best players will always leave. As much as I hate to say it. It's just a matter of where they go and for how much.
Lots of pressure on PSG to make some moves.
If Lyon is out of the CL, I wouldn't be surprised to see them sell.
Monaco will buy some young prospects and will be pressured in doing so since Lille will be a player with money from the new owner and Luis Campos as the football director. He'll spend some dough on some young guys for sure.
Finally, OM will spend with its new owner, no doubt. How much is a big question mark though. He said 200M€ over 4 years, which is really not much by today's standards. And it's not as if OM could sell for money, they don't own anyone who would bring some big money back.
There's a good chance Weigl will leave in the next few years, but we don't need to sell him until someone puts a good offer on the table. 20M pounds is a terrible offer for Weigl.
Please just don't even post about it until there's something real.
His contract runs through 2019. Can't remember the last time Dortmund sold a key player with more than one year left on his contract (GÃ¶tze's release clause aside). They also let Lewandowski's run out and didn't budge on selling Reus until they renewed his contract with 6 months left on it. If another club wants them to consider selling him before 2018, they are going to have to offer inflated price. Same with Auba's contract.
With that said, they're apparently offering him a huge wage hike to extend his contract.
You are right, I shouldn't have posted it. If I saw the words "Weigl to Man City" I think I momentarily would've panicked until I clicked on the article.
I think his contract situation is almost a no-win situation for the club. If he doesn't sign a contract extension before the summer, there will start to be more rumors, and the way he's playing, it could start to be just about every big club in Europe, not just Man City. Even if he signs an extension, what if Man City or someone else offers crazy money? What does the contract extension really mean if someone does that? I don't think we'll be turning down big money for any player, but it has to be big money, not just his market value, it has to be way above that.
Maybe Weigl wants to stay. He could prefer playing in Germany, could prefer staying in a team with as much young talent as any team in the world, he could prefer being the best player at Dortmund than any player at Real or Barca.
The club better start loading up on more young talent, if they are going to start selling the best players.
And what a mistake that was. Hopefully they don't make the same mistake again (though in the case of Weigl, it's in a long time).
Still don't see how it was a mistake. Bayern wasn't giving them a fair offer knowing he'd come for free a little later, and Lewandowski remained a key player. They have more than enough money.
I'd be happy with a backup CB and a star forward to play alongside Cavani. What are the chances of Lyon selling Lacazette to Paris?
You don't turn away from big money and win nothing in the end. Especially when it's a rival. You make them pay as much as you can (even if it's not much).
Dortmund didn't win their league that year, not the CL.
So keeping him amounted to 0 trophy, and a big money loss (in salary for the year+no transfer fee).
Can't see where the positive was really.
If PSG is wiling to spend huge money, they'll get him. Doubt they do however as they don't see striker as the main need. They need a backup CB however, that's for sure.
They must really believe in Augustin/JesÃ©. If Cavani goes down, things could get really ugly.
Looks like a lot of PL teams are interested in Kimpembe, too.
If PSG want to buy a striker Icardi is the one they must go after.
For Juve I think they'd use a creative midfielder. Not easy to find an available one though. I have no interest in Cesc.
Would like to see Tiemoue Bakayoko at Manchester United with Eric Bailly. Hopefully he doesn't end up at AC Milan, think it's down to those two and maybe Juventus.
Di Maria wouldn't be happy with that. He, Messi and other top Argentinian players hate Icardi to death.
Clearly if Cavani is injured, they're completely screwed. But they don't want to buy someone who'll shake Cavani's confidence either
Most likely, they go for a good young striker who isn't going to ask to start over Cavani.
Kimpembe has been good, but his last game at Nancy was absolutely shocking. He's hardly ready to start for any big team right now. Which is not surprising since he's young and discovering the highest level.
Clearly, but I don't think they'll go that route.
They would spend that cash on Draxler more easily IMO (someone who could play different positions).
72M is about what I would want for weigl
Would love to get an attacking mid to Manchester United. Draxler would be fantastic.
Chelsea would be in great shape if they sold Fabregas, bring in a CB, and either add a CM or upgrade Matic, upgrade wing-back or upgrade the Willian/Pedro spot.
So basically Chelsea would be in great shape if they upgraded 5-6/11 spots in their starting lineup that's very true though.
