Also hearing we still want another CB, along with the Japanese kid. Told we won’t be spending silly figures like 40-50m on anyone. Loads of loan obligation offers coming on the market. Selling clubs want ‘cash upfront’ due to the climate. Quite a few irons in the fire. JV (Southampton 28 year old) is not one of them. Few solid inquiries for Sanchez. But hearing not cast iron to go, as NES been watching him in Copa…
Apparently it could go either way. But Sanchez only wants to take a week off (isolation) and start pre-season.
I've been massively against this new regime but that's no longer for this thread, and it's more about long term concerns.
Have to say though it generally looks like there is a coherent game plan as to actually filling the positions we need to.
Paratici's was brought in because of his knowledge of players contracts and clubs financial issues give him a head start over others. I wouldn't be surprised if it's in part due to his relationship with certain journalists giving him the heads up in exchange for information on signings etc(but that's just me guessing a bit).
Cheap doesn't necessarily mean low quality as proven by how many times we have "missed the boat".
The only one who is close is the Japanese lad
nuno wants a proper look at the squad and the squad is too big for him it will be trimmed once he has taken a closer look at everyone
lacroix , plus the boy who was on loan at Fulham (Joachim Andersen) are options , priorities this summer are defenders plus decent back up for Harry
Things are going to be very different this Summer as far as what I pass on is concerned. I'm hearing so many names at the moment it's very difficult to work out which are serious targets, which are fall back options and which are just agent links. It's litterally all being leaked to the press.This means I'll only be posting about those that are quite far along in the process, unless it's a player I have a more direct link with. I've posted a week or so back regarding Tommy and fwiw that could be pushed through at any time because we are close, and have been for a week or so.
One thing I will say is we have had two enquiries for Kane,(not official bids) and they were both met with the same answer. "We are not selling him". Now we all know money talks so it's not definitive, but I'd say it's unlikely he moves this window.
Oh and again because I'm still seeing talk of it. Bale is not coming back.
On the Kounde story, just heard it's true but complicated. Swap deals are rare but Sanchez is very close to Juan and they have been talking a lot about La Liga etc. Its a big reason why he is open to the move as he's been struggling personally since his best mate has left.
trix: indeedHe knows Foyth went to Villarreal not Sevilla, right?
trix: Yeah not convinced about that.Ally gold said in his latest video that Paratici likes to be in negotiations with up to ten players for each position, so he can't be held over a barrel by anyone, so it makes sense that loads of names are being mentioned.
Kounde really wants cl football but we are trying
Seville like our offer of 30 plus Sanchez
ings we were hot for last summer but saints wanted 50 , he only has a year left on his deal so very possible
as I said expect Japanese lad to be first signing
Harry Kane. From what I have heard, we won’t sell him! Told nearer 200m ‘May challenge that stance’
And even if so, cash deal, with no players! Club not playing!
Read that as you may, because it will not change.
There's absolutely no point in fighting to keep a player who has been crystal about wanting to leave. Levy dug his heels in with Eriksen too and he ended up on the bench more often than not cos of lack of effort and sold him for fuck all. Bale was the same when he wanted to go, refusing to train, although we got a good fee. We actually owe it to Kane to give him his move. He deserves it. He's not going to win silverware with Levy at the helm, he needs a club where investment is constantly there to improve and strive for better, Levy's idea of "better" is getting his maid to agree to a pay cut. So let him go and give him the respect he deserves and a massive thank you for his brilliance, service and loyalty.£200m is fucking insane. Yes he’s clearly a world class player but nobody is going to pay that.
Sure, great for us in one sense if we can retain his services but what good is a player who is unhappy and doesn’t want to play for the club any more ?
Def no truth to this rumour
lyon are skint and we are not parting witH Tanguy , we may take Aouar at the right price
ali gold correct re Japanese signing it’s delayed due to Olympic we need to fit in a medical at some point
