    Much rather Mahrez, but his lack of defensive work rate means it's a big no no for Jose

    Well if you're quoting seasons, they finished first a year back. I really think he could make us functional which would make us scarily good. Without being functional we finished second.

    What Domino effect? If FIFA goes through with the Club World Cup new format, then Ajax is not longer a selling club overnight. Free 60mil+ without doing anything extra than playing at least 1 more game.

    Most clubs in that competition will still have more money than them though, just not the likes of Tottenham.

    I hope they do bring this Club World Cup in and teams like Ajax get to keep and develop their own talent. I miss the days of being surprised by how good a player is when seeing them at a major tournament for the first time.

    Sandro, Alderweireld, Fred, SMS, Willian. That would sort us right out if we managed anything like that.

    People want younger players, as do I, but I can honestly see why Jose wants experience right now. We haven't got the right team to be nurturing youngsters just yet, as witnessed with Rashford and Martial. We need to get a strong winning mentality with reliability all across the pitch, and that is why Jose will want as much experience as possible. Only then can we provide a platform for the youngsters to play without huge pressure.

    Besides, those players I've listed are a good mix of both, and they're our strongest links right now.

    Yeah, he's had some great moments this season, can't deny that. Quite a few Chelsea fans (on the ShedEnd) have described it as a purple patch though, in terms of output. My main issue is with the people that think signing him will transform our side. He's great in transitions, but when it comes to actual end product he's usually hit and miss.

    That's my point about the tweet saying it's Tottenham. Ajax may still lose players to big boys but that's that. These clubs want more established quality, so it's not like Ajax would lose many to top clubs. Tottenham and such top tier developing ground is not exactly worth the risk anymore given Ajax can start paying better wage and also offer chance to play in CL.

    It just says the article doesn't actually say he's signing for £50m in the next few days, which is what some have been saying. Just repeating the speculation that he 'could' leave and it could be to us, or possibly not etc etc etc

    i dont mean in terms of stats but in terms of effort. No matter what system or position he plays he gives it his all, in attack and defence, especially against top opposition and the CL. Apart from the game against Atletico (away) in the CL this season, i havent seen hazard look like the player hes supposed to be against top teams (and he sulks and looks impotent when played out of his usual LW position to me he's not as good as hes presented to be)

    But it seems La Stampa haven't reported what some accounts on twitter are attributing to them.

    Not to take this too far, i agree Rashford has played his share of games this season, but. Whoscored actually has him listed for 56 games including Internationals(2) and Club friendlies(4). However, an awful lot of them has been as substitute(23). If you count the minutes(2155), he's played just under 24 full games... And that would be including those friendlies and international games. The "51 games" are not as impressive as it initially sounds.
    That being said, he's 11th among the players for minutes in the league and 9th for minutes in he CL, so he's obviously playing an important part.

    Alex Sandro never seems to play anywhere near 30 league games per season. Is this due to injury?

    Juventus' rotation policy. Remember they have Evra for few seasons making plenty of appearance as LB too. They also have Asamoah and Chiellini to take some game as LB from time to time.

    Edit: Similarly you can look at their RBs and see how they don't play 30+ games per season. Cuarado (RWB), Lichstener, Barzagli, Dani Alves last season rotated...

    He's played a part of 51 games this season. Whether that's starts or not, it means "Rashford doesn't play" is complete and utter bollocks.

    Umm... this is the first paragraph of their story..

    Apparently they’re just claiming that United feel confident and that’s based on the Duncan Castles article so, they haven’t actually claimed anything new...

    The Sun is blacklisted. Also, look at Alvise Cagnazzo's previous articles here. His record is shocking.

    Its not a bad move to have someone who has been around the block. I would be very happy if we got him.

    Just seems nonsense to me. Bayern have Hummels and Boateng as starters with Süle getting plenty of games too.

    Edit: The Sun story. If the Tuttosport story doesn't mention Bayern then fair enough. Still can't see Bonucci leaving Italy though.

    It's saying that Bonucci didn't leave Italy last summer because of the illness of his youngest son (who is, thankfully, now better). That he's endured a tough time at Milan and Mourinho is on the case. It would certainly be his last chance to play abroad at the top level.

    He's not saying things we don't know. We all know United are interested in him as much as we're interested in several other midfielders.

    By that logic we can’t have most tweets here since most are already regurgitating things we are alr art aware of.
