I don't know who it is either!!

Told only we still have serious money to spend and while FDJ is wanted by Pep, it is complicated and we have a bigger iron in the fire that would piss even more people off.
Mané perhaps. German media is suggesting he is speaking with Bayern, so he might be available.

Is this specifically for the midfielder position? Or are we looking at full backs as well?

So… It could be an alternative to FDJ or an other midfielder along with FDJ? Are city focusing on a right or left back?

Pogba was seriously considered.

If we look at that player in isolation, the argument is he is more of an 8 or 10, rather than a six.

Which means Pep and City are open to the idea of a player who can play the variety in midfield.

Rice can't play 8 or 10 and is an outright six, so can only rotate with Rodri.

Bellingham, FDJ, certainly fit the criteria of the former.

I believe we might yet sign two midfielders.
I was well up for Pogba when the story broke and seems to have fizzled out a bit since that Ornstein yarn that he's "turned us down".

You reckon there's still legs in it? Pogba and Frenkie this summer for me would be a dream.

There will be money to spend if they had £130 million ring fenced for Kane last summer. Then what we got for Torres as well, their will be a bigger evolution in this team next season than there was this.

Signing both Bellingham and FDJ seems a little unrealistic.
