Yep. Players who can retain possession and move the play forward in central areas despite congestion, coupled with a RW like Sancho would be great.Olmo, odegard, Havertz, Maddison, players like that would be a great for us. Penetration and creativity that is badly missing through the middle. Add a right winger. Sancho or Chiesa? Haaland up front and an industrious midfielder with great passing through the lanes and a good shot on him. I think longstaff was a nice shout by the club but the price was crazy. Even if he comes good they are never going to get much more than what they were asking him last summer. I’m also starting to think we need a new LB if Williams doesn’t step up. He looks like a good player though.
olmo looks like a baller. He can do something unexpected which is where are lacking at the minute. Players have overcommit or take him down to stop him. He’s not going to cost the world. Worth a punt! Get some creative players in here, if they don’t work out sell them in a few seasons. There’s very little downside.
Against one of the shittiest sides in Europe. Ah and I am Maltese.Scores for Spain.
Fair enough, I just find goals where players go around the goalkeeper very attractive no matter who the opposition is.Against one of the shittiest sides in Europe. Ah and I am Maltese.
We're probably the only nation in the world were the female national football team are way better then the male one. I'd wish we could play Rachel Cuschieri (PSV), Maria Farrugia (Sunderland), Nicole Sciberras (Juventus), Shona Zammit (Bari) and Ylenia Carabott (Chievo) instead of those freeloaders.
I would love to see Olmo sign for us. He represents value and he's at the right age to succeed here. However malta is truly a shit yardstick to useFair enough, I just find goals where players goal around the goalkeeper very attractive no matter who the opposition is.
I agree but aside from the Champions League where he's been impressing we don't really have many ways to measure his ability against top talent. From his playing style I can see the talent is there. I do hope we are in for him.I would love to see Olmo sign for us. He represents value and he's at the right age to succeed here. However malta is truly a shit yardstick to use
I do like this player. But if i coach and manage this guy and player. I will put him in the position of Kevin De Bruyne. He is a kind of De Bruyne of player. It mean he and De Bruyne can play as wingers too. But both of them will be much better as a LCM or RCM player.Manchester United have offered 40 million euro to sign him, he was one of the highly Spanish rated midfielders who went through Barcelona academy. He can offer us more versatile roles to play in 3 midfield, false 9, on both wings or attacking midfielders.
The Croatian sports media version of BBC sport in term of reliability has reported this as well in Croatia.
He's also come out and said all the big leagues are attractive. I imagine Spain is his first choice but he'd also snap up the opportunity to move to a big club in the Premier league. I wouldn't be surprised if Atletico swoop in for him sharpish.People are so quick to blame the club for not signing certain players, but a club cannot simply decide to buy a player unless he agrees. United are reportedly interested, but he can essentially pick and choose where he wants to go. I'm 92 % sure he'll go back to Barca, as he said in November that he "hopes" to return to Spain, and Dinamo have confirmed offers from "many European clubs". So he might move in January, but I doubt we are very prominent in his "sphere of interest". We can hope, though.
No he would have preferred to have moved clubs in the summer, but was happy to stay to give the Champions League a go as his team qualified.We definitely need an attacking midfielder and I would say it is our priority position followed by another striker but if he wants Chmps Lgue next season it won’t be with us unless we win Europa again.
It would be great to see a player join a club and want to be part of a team that earns the right to play at the highest level, that is the sort of player I would like to join our club.
Olmo's agent name-dropped us and said that we don't have a player like Olmo. You'd think he would certainly consider joining us if we were to make a move. However, Atletico are reportedly at the front of the queue for his signature and it'd be tough for Olmo to reject them for us currently.No he would have preferred to have moved clubs in the summer, but was happy to stay to give the Champions League a go as his team qualified.
They are out now. Olmo very openly wants to move on. He plays for Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia. We are Manchester United - there is no way he would be scoffing at the thought of joining this club.
I never noticed Olmo at the U21 Euros (Fabian Ruiz and Ceballos stole the show) but he’s looked electric in the games I’ve seen of him in the Champions League. I think he would be a great signing.
