We aren’t looking for a peak Fernandinho player to replace Fernandinho. That player is Rodri. What we are looking for if anything is a player to replace this years Fernandinho, who’ll start maybe 20 games this season if that isn’t another year of Fernandinho which would suit me then a €20 mill Zakaria maybe could be.Gundogan came to mind for me as well. Although, Gundogan was twice the player that of Zakaria at his peak at Dortmund.
Maybe the market for Fernandinho type midfielders is so bad that we will end up taking a punt at Zakaria. These rumours seem to get stronger despite Zakaria's less than impressive form.
The fee is reasonable but feels like a waste of a foreign spot to me. Didn’t look particularly impressive in either tie against us plus his injury record is really poor.
It's not clear. There was a report about "small cleavage in the moving bone of the knee head, which may lead to permanent damage if pressed" prior to the surgery. The rehab period after the op was initially estimated at 4-6 weeks, but it took him about 35 weeks to get fit. So the state of his knee is unknown, could be anythingWhat type of knee injury did he have?
