    Seems like Levy is after another winger. Hearing that a deal is close with Galatasaray regarding Bruma. Bruma has told his team to sell him to Totteenham apparently, and has gone as far as liking shopped pictures of him in a Spurs jersey on his instagram.

    But personally I don't think that they need another winger, even if Lamela is injured. Especially considering how they are barely playing N'Koudou even if he looks good in his showings. I'd much rather like if they brought in another striker option since Janssen is so poor, and possibly another depth CDM. If we are going to keep running a back three occasionally with Dier as a CB I don't think Wanyama, Dembele and Winks are enough, especially considering how frequent Moussa gets injured. Maybe a loan deal?

    I have no doubt about it. I bet they'll be ready to spend a ton of money two and a half years from now, too.

    Are the rumours of Rakatic going to city true at all?

    Not sure what sites are reliable when it comes to soccer rumours.

    There are no reliable sites. Follow the local newspapers of the club you like and/or their beat writers. Everything else is an estimated guess as a best case scenario.

    According to sky Kolasinac reached an agreement for a free transfer (contract is up) to Juve next summer. He'll replace Evra who's gonna be leaving for sure.

    He's very good. Can play LB and CB, very physical, good defensively. He'll fit a 3-5-2 well.

    Unlike Pogba who came on a free, Dybala cost Juve quite a bit, is signed for a few more years and will likely get extended to 2021 with a raise real soon. No chance Juve doesn't demand far more for Dybala. No reason to sell, unlike Pogba who is a goofball with a jerk agent. (Mino Raiola is a snake in football)

    I also am skeptical about the Belotti story but the reason I mentioned it is because Torinos chief actually said it, not just another trash rumor article from the daily mail or sun. Arsenal already came out and denied it but I have to think there was some type of big offer for Belotti. That's the market now a days for early mid 20s stars/future stars. Not too many Higuain type deals where you invest mega bucks in an older player with limited resale value not that I'm complaining, Higuain has been that elusive player Juve hasn't had in a long long time. No more settling for Llorentes or Tevezs (even though he was quite good for us) or Moratas...they went after the best of the best at the position.

    That's what I love about football. You have people crying about an Eklund or Bruce Garrioch, when there are hundreds of those types posting sensationalist transfer rumors daily :laugh:

    According to them we are close to getting Alexis Sanchez, James, Toni Kroos and Veratti :laugh:

    Apparently, yes.

    Rakitic is due for a new contract, seemingly asked for a raise, and has been benched ever since.
    (well, that and he's been rather mediocre this season)

    Either way, Pep's high on him and I think it's likely he goes to City.

    Lukas Podolski, former Germany NT player, today at Gala, is considering an offer worth between 7-9m€ in wages from a Chinese club.:laugh:

    Go, Poldi, take the money an run .... fast.

    Clubs with a player they want to cash in on often make up huge bids that they've rejected. I'll be shocked if this isn't the case with that Belotti bid.

    Sevilla apparently interested in Sakho and Liverpool want £20M

    Reading have purchased Tiago Ilori for £3.75M and the deal includes a 35% sell on clause

    20M for some who can't even get a minute of EPL football?
    Good luck with that.

    Dortmund apparently are interested in signing Gedion Zelalem, who's contract expires in the summer.

    You don't need to tell me.

    Conflicting reports on this one. ESPN have been saying it might happen. Sky Sports News is saying Dortmund won't buy him or anyone this winter.

    Florian Grillitsch seems to finally be heading to BMG. Hecking may not be able to get them to function cohesively, but a midfield with Grillitsch sitting behind Kramer-Dahoud could flow tremendously...especially if Raffael & co can get (and stay) healthy, ahead of them.

    Jovetic to join Sevilla on loan with option to buy.

    This guy fell hard after he left Fiorentina.
