Also rumours that Barcelona have found a buyer for Coutinho. Only about 3 clubs could afford him, and I doubt it's us or PSG that's interested.

When you get close to the end of the window the reasons why deals haven't happened start to get re-assessed!

Not many Premier Leage teams that wouldn't be greatly improved with him in the starting line up.....

Coutinho? Was never anywhere near as good as the cultists at liverpool made him out to be, always incredibly up and down, only really getting his reputation because of some highlight real goals. He wasn't even in Liverpools starting XI when they sold him, and hes now completely devoid of confidence and weighed down by expectation of a £145m price tag.

On top of that hes not a winger and doesnt work hard enough for midfield - trying to play him there killed Brazils world cup - the only position he can play is #10 and few teams use a proper 10.

I wouldn't lose a wink of sleep if he moved to United.

We have 3 World class centre halves, all in their prime. We have 3 or 4 very viable back up options. Kompany can never be replaced, much like when YaYa left, you will see a tactical alteration not a player replacement.
Lol, we have one Laporte, Otto is a cvery good CB, John Stones can be good but often goes MIA

They both play regularly for the best side in Europe & play regularly for top international sides. That’s pretty much the definition of World Class. They are in the very elite of World football.
Otamendi just 12 months ago was voted in the PL team of the season and featured for the same nomination in La Liga.

Don’t underestimate your own in favour of a shiny new toy. Both are far better than Maguire and he’s about to become the most expensive defender ever!!

Otto and John Stones are not world class, take off the blue tints

"a few" (ie ins and outs) - so more than one - more than Cancelo/Danilo ??? Otamendi/?? Sane/?
It's looking likely Cancelo/Danilo swap clubs and Ota is happy to stay.

There's supposed to be a 35 year old Spanish goalkeeper coming in as 3rd choice also.

Not sure if there will be a Sane replacement? Time is running out.
