Am I missing anyone relevant here ?My understanding is if the above figures are correct, we will still have a foreign spot available for prem league but not for CL. If of course one of these players is someone like Carson we have got round that before by replacing with EDS/Academy keeper. (I think) :-)
From players who actually play, what I can see we have:
Homegrown: Ake Walker Stones Sterling= 4
Club Trained: Foden
Ederson, Aforeignkeeper, Laporte, Mendy, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodrigo, DeBruyne, Bernardo Fernandinho, Torres*, Jesus, Aguero, Mahrez= 14
Zinchenko Otamendi= 16 overseas total.
Torres is U21 for PL regs, so that makes it 15 overseas players for PL purposes.
Then we have Carson (no problem re PL)
And Garcia (fuck him so irrelevant)
So in total: PL 15 overseas inc Zinch Otamendi.
Plus 5 homegrown & Carson.
So room for 2 more overseas, 4 if Zinch & Otta go.
Space for Couto as U21.
Cl 16 overseas including Torres, Zinchenko Otamendi. Including Carson = 17.
Leave out Zinchenko & Otamendi & room for 2 more overseas. Leave out Carson for 3rd Academy keeper= room for 3 more overseas.
No problem I can see unless I'm missing someone ?
