    Yorke, Veron, Kleberson, Howard, Anderson, Spector, Forlan, Heinze, (Hargreaves), Tevez, Valencia, Chicharito, Pereira, Rojo, Romero, di Maria ... lots of Americans, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten some.

    Ed.: Like Rafael, Fabio, Possebon and not to forget James Brown.

    Doubt it. His highest goal tally in a season is 6. He has barely played for Barcelona in his time there. Not exactly United quality.

    Hasn't he played mostly as a right back anyway? The rare times he has actually played. Though he probably isn't United level you're right there.

    Think it’ll be Sanchez. Front three of Martial, Lukaku and Alexis.

    He is referring American as citizens of United States, not people who came from Brazil, Canada, Mexico, South America and Caribbean.

    Well, I know many South Americans and none of them refer to themselves as American or South American. They identify with their country solely, not the region.

    Add Samuel Castillejo of Villarreal, he will be moving on to a much bigger club in the future (most likely Atleti).

    We need to give this guy a chance and save money rather than go for Malcolm, Bailey etc.

    Pulisic is the new darling now. Glazers will be happy with him. American

    If Barca sign Griezmann whilst already having Messi, Suarez and Coutinho then I honestly believe they’d sell Dembele if we offered them their money back on him and at his age he’s as good a long term buy as there is.

    No chance whatsoever. Consider the ages of Messi and Suarez. They won't be around forever.

    Suarez would be replaced by another striker but Messi isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, Griezmann is 26/27 so approaching his prime as is Coutinho.

    I don’t see Dembele being happy about a place on the bench especially at his age and there’s been plenty of ex Barca players like Abidal or Spanish pundits that have said exactly the same thing too, think how much Barca have spent over the past 12 months (not including potentially Griezmann) and it’s genuinly not as clear cut no as maybe you think.

    No chance they’d let him go. You make it sound like they’re overloaded with talent, there’s plenty of room for game time even with Griezmann signing and another striker if Suarez left.

    Messi, Suarez, Griezmann and Coutinho into 3 starting spots isn’t overloaded with talent when you also throw in Dembele and even another suggested striker ?

    The other striker was suggested as a Suarez replacement.

    Four players for three spots isn’t overloaded. We’ve got 6.

    Sorry I pressed post as I realised what you meant, that’s still 5 into 3 spots and other than Sanchez none of our 6 is as good as Barca’s 5 and none of Barca’s 5 would be happy benched as they’d all get into any other team in the world other than maybe Real.

    I’ve seen lots of little things being quoted/reported about Dembele being a write off or how he won’t fit/play if/when Griezmann signs and that was before Coutinho also signed, I’m not saying it will happen or that Barca would sell but there’s ex Barca players and pundits/reporters talking about Dembele leaving although we’ve not been linked ourselves.
