According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter have gotten City to drop the asking price for De Jong to around £5million, possibly less, but they have to convince him to take a pay cut now.

We could end up paying the transfer fee to NDJ to accept lower wage there.:DD

But as the incoming transfers are looking it would be better to keep him and let him leave free next summer.

What will happen then? Buy another holding midfielder?

Well it's pretty clear by now that Mancini has wanted a top midfielder all summer, probably De Rossi or Martinez, but this fiasco with Marwood and friends means we haven't gotten one. Maybe with De Jong sold Mancini will be allowed a midfielder, hopefully of his own choosing or we might end up with Jordan Henderson.

Is this one of those things where you have to rearrange the words to make a sentence?

If you say so mate, I suppose Mancini's public attack at Marwood and public call for more players (4 or 5 in his own words) was just paper talk too. "We don't need big changes, not 10 players like two or three years ago - but we need three, four, five players."

£5million?!! This must be a joke! I don't think we are THAT desperate to offload De Jong!

You can read into a what Mancini said as public attack or not. I don't subscribe to that. So buying 5 new players are not big changes.

We probably need 2 quality players who I suspect we are in for. But buying a player is not like going to a shop. I feel many on this board think we only have to turn up waving our cheque book and clubs agents and players will just flock on board. Marwood will be working within strict guidelines from above. So we don't end up with more Ade RSCs which to me makes purfect sense
