He reminds me of Mustafi.
Would like to see Manolas and Milenkovic brought in this window. Sell Jones and Rojo and bring these 2 in.
Would be a underwhelming signing. I don't think we should give it up on bailly yet.
He was terrible in the final against Liverpool as well. He just let Neal walk right past him.
Solanke wouldn't have been on 120k a week.
United will have to take a hit of the transfer fee to offset the potential wage a lower club would need to pay.
Yeah, I didn’t really think of that. 120k, though, for a guy that barely plays. Football has gone mad.
He is no stelios kontos
Seen him maybe 10 times in his career, never been overly impressed. The description of him being "incredibly quick" early in the thread surprises me as he has always looked a little sluggish on the turn to me. Maybe very fast when he gets up to full speed but those initial steps are what really matter.
I don't know if it was Roma's suicidal tactics last season against Liverpool but he's a no go for me, a big lump is all I saw.
I just read that Tammy Abraham is about to be offered 120k a week. Let that sink in
I am not sure why we're dallying and not paying a bit more to get him ASAP. We need a CB now. It also makes business sense - we'll make the money back just from making the CL, let alone potentially beating PSG and progressing through this year's CL.
Do we really? Smalling will come back, bailly will come back in a game, and as a top heavy side we gotta back ourselves to score more than the opponent. Unless we offload in January I don't think we need to panic buy.
We can defend much better than we have under mourinho. Rather go for koulibaly or Ajax prodigy in the summer.
I'm not sure if he is that great? I haven't watched a lot of him tbf but he just stinks of mediocre to me but I'm not sure why.
Yes, we need someone at the back to be our rock. Lindelof has done well but I think he needs a more established figure who is a good all-rounder, including in the air where we are lacking and have conceded from quite a few set pieces.
Smalling, for one, cannot pass the ball. He takes about five minute to set his long legs and pass it 5 yards. We saw what a difference it makes to have a CB who can drive from deep from time to time. None of our current CBs, outside of Lindelof, can do that.
We’ll have to agree to disagree on that.
I don't trust Jones to defend a chocolate cake from a 5-year-old.
This guy is a beast on PES. According to their stats, he is extremely quick.
Who would you trust in that situation?
Anderson, Fat Ronaldo, & if the cake was laced with the "white stuff" then Maradona.
How is he on the ball ?
If we're looking at buying 2 starting CBs then he might be a decent signing but I don't think he'll pair well with the current CB's that we have (maybe Smalling as he's our best defender) and on his own he won't bring the composure that our defense needs.
Is it really worth it bringing in a player that's probably not our #1 option at this stage? We wouldn't be able to use him in the UCL and the league is already lost. Maybe for the cups and try to get top four?
At Cb we either need to sign an established world class talent like Koulibaly or go for some young talent with the potential of turning into world class. Our team already contains many "good" players, we don't need to add another.
I am not a big fan of Manolas. He doesnt convince me in the games i saw him (granted only CL games and top games in Serie A). He has decent pace and is strong in the air, but rash and not the greatest on the ball with the occasional brainfart. I dont think he would be a major upgrade on what we have. We need to aim higher.
Go all out on Koulibaly or De Ligt for me, even if the price is twice as much as Manolas.
He would be able to play in UCL - the rules have changed.
We have enough good/mediocre CB's. We need the real deal now.
He is one of the best center backs in the world. How does his clause is so "low"?
Presumably his contract was agreed before the transfer market went mental
Except the price would probably be more than twice as much. Try 3x for Koulibaly. Would rather have Manolas who is better than our current CB's and some budget left for another reinforcement (be it a RW/RB/CM).
Is this the bloke from God of War?
If so, sign him up.
Seen it somewhere that his clause is only valid in the summer, in that case we could offer Roma clause worth of money + Rojo.
Based on what?
He's arguably their 2nd best CB behind Fazio not just this season but last season 2. So are you telling me that Roma have 2 of the best CBs in the world?
this is most likely bollocks, good defender though.
The same Fazio that was less than stellar at Spurs?
