Wonder could we tempt Gav Bazunu across from City. He’s been Ireland’s best player for the last year, is able to play ball and always makes himself available for a pass. Has made unbelievable saves for Ireland and Portsmouth including a Ronaldo penalty and seems a great lad. Still questions about his ceiling but he’s passed every test so far with flying colors.
I second this motion, although he is not the tallest for a keeper Bazuna has been superb for Ireland and really does help with playing out from the back.

ten Hag may want to move De Gea on, but his crazy wages will deter any potential buyers.
Luckily for us he onle has one year left, the smartest call would be not to extend his contract and let Ten Hag decide if he wants to keep him or not. But we all know we'll give him a 4+1 year contract that will tie our hands for any potential move.

I remember when Brahim Diaz went to Real Madrid, Man City inserted some weird clause in the deal that if he ever moved to a club in Manchester, Madrid would have to give them the majority of any transfer fee.

Going off of that, I can't see City selling anybody directly to us, no matter how far behind we fall.

Maybe in a few years we can Sancho him, weird clauses permitting.

We may end up keeping him and running his contract out.
Heaton imo is a better all round keeper.
The pre season will be interesting.

Got to be joking, De Gea is not good with distribution and stays rooted to his line way too much, but saying Heaton is better is non sense. He definitely need to improve on De Gea if we're going to implement Ten Hag Ajax's playing style (which I hope so) but Heaton wont have a chance to overtake De Gea's spot being honest.

Ya City aren’t going to sell one of their most promising youngsters I’m afraid

Either bargaining for a better contract or a replacement for Dean Henderson
He started the season on fire, then had a big dip and then did okay for Valencia again

Young at 21 and large keeper at 6'5, obvious potential

Deepthroating information to Howard Nurse.
Not entirely sure what the moaning is about. Henderson is leaving. We could bring in a free transfer but we most certainly need a new starting GK in the next two years - if this kid is a top prospect then for that fee it sounds like a great deal. Obviously if he’s shit then it isn’t :lol:

"Isn't particularly good with his feet, or participating in the build-up."
What heck is going on? Why would ETH ask for a keeper who doesn't fit his style?

Looking at that vid, I noticed a few saves wherein he allowed a rebound or follow-up and the video stops before the ball is cleared or he stops another shot. Gotta figure that resulted in a goal, no?

In any case, no budget to pay for an incoming GK as a #2
