    I think it was ever only between our two clubs, PSG was merely fodder to push the fee high IMHO. Nothing substantiated of course but also makes sense Pep made more than one attempt to convince the player but as Koeman commented on recently, a player signing today has to be wondering how much longer Guardiola will be at City.

    Of course, current Ajax management and most of the backroom staff as well as those surrounding the club are linked closely to Barcelona - the player & his father having affection for Cruyff & Barca doesn't hurt either. And Pep is the disciple of Cruyff so I knew that would likely resonate with the player & family. We'll see what happens but I have always felt that the transfer was really something this board could only screw up since everything pointed to it being a sure thing. Really want this to happen and the links from today suggest it is ending soon

    Puig shares some similar traits to FDJ but I have fantasized about a midfield trio of Alena, Frenkie & Puig

    If that's the case we'll gladly take Arthur off your hands ;)

    Ndombele should be the choice for you guys if we land FDJ, Arthur is quite comfortable at Barcelona but never say never - I think the Brasilian will split time with Puig in the coming years

    Looking at their website translated they are going through each of his possible destinations, not saying that he is going one place or another.
