    We have never bought a CB of Laporte's quality or future potential though. Not Ottamendi, Nastastic, Mangala, Savic etc.....Love VVD but there isn't a better CB on the planet better suited for this team than Laporte.

    Yeah I agree. I must've posted that post a while ago haha.

    Van dijk's a beast, and so is Laporte

    Both. One thing is a consequence of another. Think they'll move for Auba, Griezmann or Mbappe.

    Why would he leave the most prestigious club in his native country? Playing time? Modric isn't getting younger, Isco will become first choice soon enough. My gut feeling is that he's just fishing for a good contract.

    I'll put my money on kovacic being the player to replace modric. I'll be surprised if isco stays this season.

    Have you honestly watched him enough to claim that? If so I'll have to just take your word on it as I can't comment, I've hardly watched the guy play a full 90 minutes. Van Dijk on the other hand I've seen plenty and am impressed the vast majority of the time. Think he ticks a lot of boxes for us.

    I don't claim to watch every game but whenever Bilbao play in Europe or when they have a big game in Spain I try to watch. I started paying attention to Laporte about 4 years ago. If Pep had to create a CB from scratch this is what he would look like. His passing is sublime. He will leave Bilbao this summer IMO...either us or Barca.

    Fair enough, I'll take your word for it & be happy with either! Either will cost us plenty.
