To be fair there weren't days of Bernardo Silva like transfers, there was just the one Bernardo. Most transfers if not all from memory before and after Silva were heavily trailed and dragged on.
True but in most of the cases the transfers do happen. Like the Torres one currently. Lot of rumours of other teams coming for him and City underpaying them but will happen. Even Walker with Levy in charge did happen but with a few hiccups. I just don't trust ADL at all
