    Maybe if we were looking to make only a couple of big signings then yes? Loads of rumors not long ago about hazard and he would have been £120m plus! Mbappe would be an investment for now and the future

    I know that PSG have an option to buy him, but if they can't have him because of FFP, would they have to buy him first and then sell him or could they just withdrawn from the deal? If so, we should throw 180m at Monaco for Mbappe and Fabinho

    From my view we need :
    Ryan Sessegnon
    CB (De Ligt??)
    Savic from lazio
    Thiago/Isco
    Griezmann
    What do you guys think?

    That's a nice list but it seems that we aren't targeting more than 3 players. Forward, DM, maybe CB apparently.

    Manchester City will move for Kylian Mbappé (19) if PSG have to cash in on the forward after failing to meet Financial Fair Play rules. [@MullockSMirror]

    I rate Mullock but think he’s way off the mark with that article. The Mbappe link is purely assumption and comes across as his own guesswork. Even if PSG do get into bother with FFP the worst that’ll happen is a hefty fine and a ban from the CL for a year, they won’t need to sell players. Plus there would be no way we go in for De Ligt either considering we already have 4 centre halves. Any additions in that position depend on Kompany’s plans for the future and even then it’ll be an experienced, happy-to-sit-out-most-weeks, JFE type signing, not another player with potential.

    The Isco and Thiago links are interesting considering what Pep said about Silva but again I think it’s guesswork and I imagine we won’t go in for that type of player this summer.

    If paper talk is to be believed we’re planning on signing 3 players at the most, a defensive minded midfielder who can ping the ball around, a winger who can play across the front line, and possibly an experienced defender. But when do things ever go to plan? Whatever happens here’s a list of targets from credible sources over the past few months;

    Holding midfielder:
    Weigl
    Fred
    NDombele

    Winger/Forward:
    Hazard (fat chance)
    Lewandowski (fat chance)
    Bailley
    Zaha

    Perhaps Thiago could play the holding mid? I remember reading he's pretty good defensively, but he is quite injury prone.

    Is Thiago really a defensive minded player though? He seems like someone who is more along the lines of Silva when we need someone to be tackling. De Ligt and Mbappe sound pretty good though.

    I think we should experiment with a tall forward. Even someone like Giroud could benefit from accurate over the top balls from DeBruyne, Silva and Ederson.
