Worthy of a new thread? The old one is almost a year old. Courtesy of @Tom Van Persie

He's up for sale as confirmed by Romano and it appears we are interested.
How has he been? He's good in the air, and with the ball, but quite slow. Is that about right? There may be value in this especially if we can sort out a loan with obligation structure. At 24 hel have good resale value too.

Don't think his performances warrant the wage outlay he would require now. Would prefer a pacier partner for Martinez too.

Yeah nah. Get a good partner going for Martinez and spend the money on a DM if there's extra. This ship has sailed.

Every time he's against a pacey forward, he struggles every single time. Said it for years and it never changes.

Thankfully, I am 99% sure that the link is horse shit

Also his Dad has his own orbit

Not for the money and wages. He hasn’t looked worth that fee and wage for Bayern. I don’t believe we have space for him in the medical room either.

Don’t really want him. Would be funding big parts of Bayern’s transfer window as they’re looking to offload as well

I honestly can't believe that he's only 24 :lol:

Yet another player our manager has worked with before, what a surprise. He's slow and injury prone, no thanks.

Insist on a loan deal, that's what we'd be getting if he was ours. Would be nice of us to not give them their money back and be left with a write off or becomes part of the garage furniture/injury list.

Lets see how he does and set a reasonable buy fee beforehand. If not then leave it, don't get suckered in.

Allowed to leave by Juve for less than they paid for him. Now apparently available to leave Bayern. Recurrent knee injury. Played for Ten Hag as a precocious teenager and is broadly considered not to have fulfilled that promise.

Sounds absolutely up our street.

Would be an interesting prospect but I wouldn't trust a player Bayern are selling.

Them and Real Madrid know exactly when it's the right time to sell a player for maximum value and they fall off a cliff in a season or two.

A no from me for that reason alone. Tells me he's gonna be a sick note for the rest of his career.

In theory de Ligt would be the perfect partner for Martinez. Tall, good in the air, right footed, good pace (shut up) and good on the ball. A leader. Captain as a teenager for Ajax. Huge question marks about the injuries though.

I think we should stay away from any more former Ajax-under-Erik players who have had big question marks over their heads, since then

Let's recruit players from a wider circle, like Todibo

Doubt we sign him he would demand a huge wage something which we’re trying to cut out. Essentially just not worth the money.

Yeah we shouldn't sign him. Slow, injury prone and failed at 2 clubs.

We need someone quicker and lower wages.
