    It's popped up online now too.




    We've got him but I think the Newcastle bit is exaggerated.

    It's going a bit far signing every forward in world football just so Bony is the only option left... Needs must I suppose lol :)

    Which is surely why keeping Mangala, in whom we have invested a lot of money, might not be the worst option. He's a walking muscle but with pace to burn and I think he is better on the ball than many wish to credit him; I think he is a bit deceptive in that regard because he often looks ungainly (best description I can think of) when passing. His pass completion percentage is consistently in the high eighties so there's surely something there that Pep can work on. It's what's going on in his head that Pep most needs to tackle and the boy is not stupid so I have hope that Pep can coach Manga into a very useful squad member. The issue that won't go away is that he is another player who will look better alongside Vinnie but can't substitute for Vinnie.

    Take a wild guess.......
    He unquestionably has his strengths Mangala, but that propensity to hesitate or panic under pressure would be a real concern, as we saw yet again in that pre-season game against West Ham when he got mugged from behind receiving a short pass from the keeper. Where he might be useful is against lone fliers like Rashford or Vardy, whom he totally owned in a 0-0 at the King Power 2 years ago

    Don't get signing this bloke koyade is it? Unless pep actually thinks he is an option for us he doesn't fit the buy to sell model as he is 24, 25 when he returns from his loan regardless of how well he does he will end up like bony and nasri people only wanting to loan him as they know he has no place in our squad.

    Think it might be to just generally strengthen Girona. If he has a great campaign then go from there.
