    Sam Wallace saying in the Telegraph that we're "monitoring" this lad. Have to admit, I'm not an avid follower of Dutch football, so I'm in the dark here. Is he worth a bid? £50m is a fair wedge for an 18 year old.

    why've you put the scout in the title? lol. Weird, confused me.

    de Ligt, young, decent but plenty of potential to grow into. Nowhere near £50m though, need to tie up De Jong even if only first option on a future move as he's the star imo.

    50m defender? Not bought one of them in a while. Never heard of him but I have no idea why we would want another center back.

    Haha, no wonder I've never heard of him.

    He’d be worth a bid if we hadn’t signed Laporte. To have 5 centre halfs with 3 of them under 25, despite having a lot of game time for their age, would be counterproductive IMO. An experienced “veteran” with composure would be better suited. De Ligt could become that player but we already have two unfinished articles we should be working on instead.

    Forgive me if I’m wrong but if there is anything half decent coming from the Tele, isn’t it usually Ducker who reports it? I’ve never heard of this journo.

    Only makes sense if one of Stones, Kompany or Otamendi leaves.

    Strange title. We are not spending £50m on a scout.

    It's been a long, looong day since 3:30 this morning. Still shouldn't have fucked up like that, mind. Humble apologies.
