Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

Haaland was scoring 4 in 5 in Europe at Molde and 8 goals in 6 games at Salzburg. Let's not compare the two, eh. Scoring loads in Austria means practically dick. 

 

Said with the disclaimer he may actually be good, I have no idea, but it's not real easy to tell because he's done fuck all in Europe.

I dont particularly want us to sign Raphina, it feels like at best he stops too much of a drop off coming on from the bench. Is that enough for what would be a massive part of our budget

He’s fantastic IMO.

Talk of barca offering us Phil for nothing, rather than pay us the £50m they still owe us. If he's on sensible wages I'd be for that. 

Barca don't do sensible wages.

 

They don't owe us anything as of now.

 

Dont want him or his bad back BACK.

I’ve only seen Daka play 3 or 4 times, but have been very impressed with the, albeit limited, evidence. On the other hand, I was sure Minamino would fit us like a glove, so there’s that…

I didn’t care about Minamino and I don’t care about Daka. So there’s that.

Is this Barella chap we’ve been linked with from Inter any good? I have to confess alive not watched Italian football for a while so know little about him.

Arguably the best midfielder in Italy - I can't see Inter allowing him to leave in all honesty.

We've been linked to Raphinha and Patson Daka today. Buying anyone from a PL team now is expensive but some clubs still want to wait and see whether a foreign player does well with a team playing in their league. 

i saw something this morning saying 32m. didn't leeds pay not far short of that for him (maybe 20m?)? it seems really low if they did. Why would they sell?

I can see Daka coming in for Origi and Raphina for Shaqiri but only if there’s an incentive for Leeds to sell. If we can replace the dud squad players with people who at least have potential to challenge the established order like Jota did whilst offsetting a chunk of the fee by selling the duds then we’ll be doing good business. Ideally we replace first team players with better players and demote the first teamers to squad players but we have a brilliant first team and not a lot of money to spend.

Raphina will be difficult this window. He’s a long contract and doesn’t look like there’s any chance of him agitating for a move. Money, of course, could talk but we won’t talk loud enough.

 

No harm in fluttering our eyes in his direction though. We might need to play the long game here.

Two good to be true

Wouldn't be surprised if we're using one to give negotiating leverage to the other. Seems to be the way Mike Edwards operates.
