Just checked. Of the outfield players Rodri has played the most minutes this season after de Bruyne and Sterling. Aouar (if signed) and Torres should alleviate their workload, so that might be another reason for bringing Luiz back.
Maybe one for the winter window assuming Covid doesn’t interfere with the season
Maybe, but we need a non-HG spot for Luiz.
Bravo -> Steffen (1more spot if some HG keeper...)
Ota -> Koulibaly
David -> Aouar
would be my preferred guesses in this window. That's 17.
I see Aouar as AM and Luiz as DM. Agreed?
On DM we have Rodri and Gundo (Fern not really anymore).
As AM we have Kev, Bernardo and Foden - that's 1 short (David gone).
Fern -> Luiz next summer
with Gundo maybe surplus as well.
Luiz doesn't fit in this summer it was said and it makes sense to me.
