Talk of PSG offering nearly £200 million for Neymar so its not just the Prem clubs.

thats just because its his buyout though no? Even look at what the agreed fee for Bayern signing Rodriguez is. Or what they paid for Tolisso

City signing Danilo from Madrid. £76m on 2 right backs in one window. Madness

Rodriguez is a loan. Tolisso was still €40m+ for a 22 year old Lyon player. Real and Barca have been signing players for close to €100m for a couple of years now.

Bonucci going to Milan for £35m, no way City or Chelsea would have got him that cheap.

Lots of journos reporting that European clubs are just not budging on prices with Prem teams, Perisic being case in point. United initially offered £35m, Inter havent budged from 48, and United last offer was 44/45

If a club only wants €48m from Man Utd for a player, in this current climate, then he must be fucking shit, or a busted flush, and you have to wonder why are Utd bothering with a sub €50m player anyway.

i don't think any club would be upset to take him. Only maybe City if they feel they're equipped already

Only a friendly and all but fuck me that kid off City, Foden looks like unreal. Only 17, lots of skill but I was more impressed with how much he got on the ball and dictated city's play. Seriously impressive

Yeah he was class wasn't he. Local lad too. Would love to see him get a chance but the only way academy kids make it into title challenging sides these days is when there's no other option, so it's more out of desperation. Like Rashford under Van Gaal. Who knows if he ever would have got a decent look in if ye weren't desperate at the time, or maybe I'm remembering that wrong.

He played in Europe because Martial got injured in a warmup, and he scored twice

Pep wouldnt hesitate to play him if he was good enough

only read about the year he had recently. something about breaking up with a long term girlfriend who moved back to france. dunno if his personal life had an effect on his season last year.

also, worst penalty shootout ever

He made shit of Carvajal, Modric and someone else I couldnt make out. Unbelievable feet.

City signed Danilo from Real for £25m, with Mendy arriving for £52m. Surely Danilo is for DM and not RB

Can't wait till they go through next season not conceding a goal with £200m spent on a defence. You wont hear anything else otherwise

Nah, just 25m on a backup RB. Curious how much they'll stump up on a backup LB considering they're letting Kolorov go too
