    really need either of those Lyon lads now for fernandinho....its so obvious

    and now that De Jong is gone ...Lyon can raise their asking price knowing there are so few alternatives

    He makes the choice before anyone goes off on one,playing with messi is a big pull for a kid

    many many sources including Mullock have said City had him , but didn't want to pay

    fair enough if ndombele is done but i really doubt that !

    Glad he’s not coming. Over rated and over hyped.

    We need a physical DM not a Jorginho type, we dodged a bullet there, Ederson has more PL assists than him ffs.

    Great player with amazing potential,but we move on.

    Pep and Txiki will have a plan that won't leave us wanting.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure the sky is falling with us losing every transfer battle and the best of the academy leaving for Germany.

    We put it on ice last summer for whatever reason,i don't think we have been back,maybe he made it clear he has wanted barca in this last few months,it is barca after all,typical kneejerk reactions when we don't buy someone who may look good in an inferior league but not tested anywhere else,we pulled the plug for good reasons i'm sure,pep has talked recently about needing someone physical like dinho as well as all the rest dinho offers,seems pep decided he was not the one

    Hardly surprising that we lost out on this one. Ndombele and Neves are nonstarters because they'll command at least as high a price given the clubs showing interest, and we've demonstrated multiple times that the club is not prepared to enter into bidding wars. Aouar does not have the physical attributes to play the position. Best solution now is to offer PSG a token sum for Rabiot, who is well rested and could come in before the window closes.
