    He’s class, a real effortless footballer. I echo the sentiment that if that mob can’t find the cash for Pogba we should try and get him as a makeweight. Being Norwegian too he’s at least one non-British footballer Ole will have heard of too, so he will know all about his qualities.

    He was OK, tried to make things happen but his side were being totally dominated, it was mission impossible.

    The guy is going to be a fantastic player.

    We should swap pogba for Odegaard and ceballos plus some cash.

    I love pogba but if he’s decided he’s going we could do a lot worse.

    Haven’t really seen Ödegaard play except highlights but I watched the game yesterday and he is class as someone said. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s a regular starter in Real madrid in a few years.

    I hear this "Martin+something/Pogba swap" a lot in Cafe, but that's not gonna happen, the club have been pretty firm in counting on Martin, he's been free to choose each of his clubs, with the club following his progress closely, Perez had an interview a couple of months ago (before the market) where he directly confirmed that he'd be part of the future of the club, and that he's not gonna sell him no matter what. His (new) contract runs until 2023.

    We shall see.

    I doubt we would even ask for him anyway but he's clearly not part of your first team plans yet - with Pogba coming in that's another space gone.

    If we can get him as part of any deal for Pogba PLUS bringing another midfielder in from wherever - I'd say if its in any way possible go for it.

    Would be great if he joined. With his recent constant development, the new "grown-up body" and all the km he runs each game (12,3km per match for first two LaLiga matches), he would fit perfect into Oles style of play. And he still delivers perfect passes after 90 minutes of running like a mad dog. I do not see RM letting him go though. Due to the fact that Perez likes him a lot and want to see him succeed there. We will see, I think the prize tag might be getting very high now though. But Zidane would have to convince Perez to swap++ and I do not think he will manage to do that with Perez seeing him as Reals new CM for the future.

    He's coming a long nicely so lets see if he continues to develop. The Norwegian NT finally has some good, young players.

    He’s class, playing well now against Atletico. Would love us to be interested in him.

    The boy has well and truly arrived. He’s looking absolutely class. Lucky with the deflection, but he still gets that one :)

    And his delivery just helped create a second goal.

    Midas touch.

    Great pass in the build-up there. That took out three Atletico players in midfield. Assist was good too. Actually I think the goal itself was the least impressive part of the attack :lol:

    Liking him so far. Hard worker and fights his bollocks off too

    After seeing James today, having those two competing for the starting spot next year should be good :drool:

    Has he been permanently let go by Madrid or is he going from loan to loan but still their player?

    Imagine if he'd chosen us?

    He'd have been called a whiny cnut by Jose and sold Schalke or something, before ending up at Liverpool.

    It's a season long loan. Apparently there is agreement he'll stay on loan at La Real another season if things go well.

    It was a good loan move. Done well in Holland but he needs to show he can get to that level in La Liga and Real Sociedad is building a very exciting young team so he's fitted in very well. Going to be starting every week if he stays fit.

    Yeah, if he keeps this up then it would make no sense for Real to not start involving him next season.

    They place different positions, won't be competing for the same spot.

    McTominay
    Ødegaard - Pogba
    Sancho - Martial - James​

    Modric will be 35 start of next season. Seems Kroos is declining now so Real Madrid could easily cash in next summer before he hits 30.

    That will be area Odegaard comes into. He isn't quite a number 10, more number 8 type midfielder who drifts between halfway line and edge of box.

    As I said earlier, if we are are going to lose Pogba we really should demand Odegaard is included. Zidane will snap our hands off.

    I love Pogba but if he's really wanting to leave then it would be a smart future investment. The kid looks absolutely class.

    ..................odegaard..............
    Viniscus........jovic.........rodrygo

    Chuck in Diaz and asensio is still only 23

    Basically most of their attack is potentially in place for the next decade

    If it gets pogba to Madrid then I can see it happening. I don’t think Zidane likes him that much as he could have found a place for him this season. Let’s see.

    Considering that he is a Liverpool fan, I don't really see why he would leave Real Madrid to join a struggeling United. Even if Solskjær is manager.

    Completely agree. Obviously Odegaard is a huge talent and probably more renowned for being at Madrid etc. but Sander Berge, Erling Haaland, Kristoffer Ajer, Birger Meling (love this guy) et al. Bright future, hopefully they'll all blood in together for the 2022 World Cup.
