This is quite incredible if it turns out to be true ..


A free transfer and a token £10m fee if he plays 20 games. For a player who was once touted as a £100m player, that's a truly shocking fall.
A fucking free....

A FUCKING FREE....!!!!!

I’m hearing it’s staggered payments worth up to £40 million for Alli, that would be insane business by Dr Evil if true. I can’t see him letting Alli go for £10 mill, no way!

Yes, I read £35 - £40 million

I've just read that as well. I'd wager those targets are all very easy to hit as well - appearances, goals, league position maybe.

I suspect it's been structured like this to get it done super quickly and get him off the books.

Bentancur and Kulusevski have been announced.

Such a good bit of business, another year of him being shit and another year off his contract and we’d barely get anything for him.

I’m bordering on semi happy with how things have gone today, I know it’s not gonna happen but a late signing of Lamptey would maybe make me tip the scales to happy.

There's talk of a fairly big deal happening involving the buying club being from London. Is it us pulling a rabbit with other clubs desperate? Or is it Spam buying Kalvin Phillips?

Chelsea and Dembele? Where are you hearing this.

Hell, even 10 mil and off the books is decent. Wonder how much we purchased him for? If only there was a song about it. 🤔

Random aside, why are we always so late to announce signings even after they're already done? Seems the selling team always announces before we do. It might not be a big deal, but it just makes us look slow on the draw and a bit uninspired. Or maybe I'm just looking for more reasons to hate Levy?

Conte analysed the squad and gave Paratici and Levy his thoughts. We are shifting the deadwood and beginning the rebuild, This is Levy backing the manager, backing the manager on realistic targets and when we fail to get a target (because a bigger club comes in) we have back up options.

The club are backing the manager, and it will be the same in the summer.

And it seems Levy has relented in a way: selling some players at a loss rather than hanging on to them & still paying ridiculous wages.

This is the part I find interesting. A lot of the ITK's insist that he's no longer in control of transfers and that's completely down to Paratici now, so that would make some sense that the deadwood is finally getting cleared out, but you'd also assume that Levy has still given Paratici guidelines to work under at least ?

Have we made a loss on any players? Dele is a free but will be £10million I’ll after 20 appearance, he cost £5million.

Dembele has a option to buy for £54million which is a £9million loss, but not to bad in the grand scheme of things. The others are loans with wages paid.

Hasnt he been a locker room cancer everywhere he has been? Also on a (reportedly) 210k/week? Better be a loan and barca better be ready to cover half of it

Not really keen on him but if Conte wants him AND can get him to buy in AND avoids his glass body injuries, I'm all for it.

Those wages would likely be what scuppers the deal. The asking price is a very Levy-friendly £18m though.

Then there’s this ..

I have to say, I do feel a bit bad for Lindgard. Guess it's better for us he didn't wind up at West Ham of Newcastle, but seems really unfair to him. Sounds like something Levy would do.

Besides Ndombele, off the top of my head, Lo Celso has an option to buy (at a loss) plus we bought out Aurier's contract.

Does look like that’s it for this window now. Moving Dele on is all that’s left.

Newcastle supposedly trying to hijack Everton’s deal with a loan offer so might go down to the wire.

Dele feels a bit sad. Would love to know what happened here. Was it his treatment by Mourinho or had he already began to decline under Poch.

It will be interesting to see if he begins To -reform under Lampard at Everton

I got the feeling the decline started when he changed agents. I think the whole 'aura', for want of a better word, around him being the next big thing went to his head.

Poch looked after him and let him get away with a lot as long as he produced on the pitch, which he seemed to be doing, but when the Cunt came in and almost immediately chose him as the player he'd rip the shit out of, i think Dele just couldn't be fucked from that point.

Yep, the guy started to believe his own hype.

Doesn't work hard enough from what I see. Doesn't want to add more strings to his bow and improve his all round game.

It's sad. He could have been a world-beater.

Be interesting to see how we will line up in future matches on the basis of this transfer window. With really only having four pure center midfielders of Winks, PEH, Skipp, Bentacur I can see the formation being

5-2-3 as opposed to a 5-3-2 with Kane up top and him having two wingers either side.

Sanchez Dier Romero
Doherty PEH Bentacur Reguilon
Dejan Kul Kane Son

Maybe a 3-4-3 if you want to look at it that way.

For me, he was kind of the face of the team under Poch when he was young. Pressed like a madman, had a bit of the needle about him, lots of swagger. Obviously that goal at Palace was his best, but used to love how he'd time his run to get on the end of those long diagonal balls from Toby especially. But you're right, the decline was plain for everyone to see, and if we're being honest, it started before he became the target of Mourinho's shit.

Kulusevski not only has skill but he's a beast & knows how to ride a tackle.

Rodri is like a primitive pit bull on steroids roaming the midfield for unwanted intruders.

They're going to be fun to watch.
