It does indeed. A 2-step process to him coming to play in the UK that is hopefully less of a culture change and gives him minutes.Now the loan make sense.
He is a South American, first time going out from his home country, probably needs time to learn english. At the same time he needs first team games and sending him on loan to Championship will be disastrous.
I think he is the reason why we should not retain Lingard and look to sell him next season.
He'll be playing for us soon, no doubt.
Only watched YouTube highlights (which can be misleading) but from the latest short clips, quite impressed, especially given the opposition in latest video. Looks confident, direct and regularly picked the better option (pass inside or take the LB on).
With him, Amad, Shoretire, Garner (doing well at Forest), Hugill, Mejbri ... next 6-24 months could see quite a few coming into the squad.
Hopefully the transfers we look at this Summer and next 12 months are focussed and we go for quality/ready to slot straight in players and not squad players (the above names will give us quantity and hopefully quality). We need a few players but personally, I'd rather have just Haaland than three 7-out-of-10 squad fodder signings.
Pellistri. Looks good though.
