    Well maybe Pep thinks a different approach is best

    After the first game no one wanted him but after the 2nd game with Monaco things have changed.
    At the end of the day I would rather to spend 29m on Mendy than 50m on Rose.

    Pep wants both. Lahm played as a proper fullback quite a few times, most notably in the Porto game when he tore Porto apart with overlapping runs and crosses.

    The Gaurdiola system needs fullbacks who will tuck in narrow when the wingers are wide and go wide when the wingers come inside.

    Navas gas been going down the wing in the last 2 weeks when Sterling comes inside - second goal yesterday is a prime example.

    Bernat or Gaya would be better for Pep and his style but anyway as mentioned above it better to spend 29 m on 22 year old Mendy rather than 50 m on 26 year old Rose

    That's fair, can Mendy do both ? only really seen him against us when he was doing the overlapping bit. Not against signing Mendy but as you say need the intelligence as well as the overlapping energy.

    I'm confident that Guardiola knows what he wants and will go for players who can do that.

    Personally I can't see us getting him even though I want him. I think we'll go for Hernandez and Kolasinac

    I'll take Kolasinac over Mendy coz he is free and a better defender. I'll take Hernandez over Mendy coz he is cheaper and a better attacking fullback.
