    Why cash in? He is a very good second choice RB. It was his first season in eng. Will definitely get better

    Really? I'd say vice versa myself.

    Based on the last few matches, he’s actually fairly good at both. He has been better than Walker in general over the last few months, when played.

    Then again, that may just be due to Walker’s form dropping considerably in the second half of the season.

    Perhaps we have two very good RBs now?

    I consider Danilo a better attacking footballer and capable of playing in the midfield, whereas Walker is stronger with the game in front of him. Walker needed resting, as 3842 mins is an incredible amount of football to be playing in that position at the highest level. Both will hopefully rotate more next season, once Mendy is fit, and we can create different balances and points of attack. Happy days. :-)

    Where was mendy today? Interesting that he wasn’t there and not seen anything on social media from him.

    I think Tite will call Rafinha from Bayern and Danilo.

    Not a fan but he's had a couple of good games lately.

    Wouldn't be enough for me personally, I'd be looking for Maffeo to prove in preseason he deserves Danilo's spot.

    One thing that might save Danilo is the ability to play both FB roles, something that me might well need on the bench if Jorginho & a FW arrive, our bench is gonna have lots of mids/attackers on there, no room for a 3 defenders

    We need seasoned professionals in the dressing room and his experience is invaluable

    I like him, very underrated and fun to watch. Think too many just need to criticise for the sake of it. By no means a world beater but a very good squad player. Played very well recently.
