Will still end up at Liverpool for peanuts and have no re-occurance of any knee problems.
To be more complete, Duluc says that Lyon want to get rid of him and apparently it's due to the Liverpool deal, they are pissed because his brother in law allegedly killed the deal with Liverpool by reneging on the deal that they had with Liverpool. That's a pretty big info from someone that works around Lyon.
Agreed. I would very much like us to take a punt for 30m.
Thanks, I was actually going to tag you to ask a bit more on what was said!
No team bigger than Betis interested in him. No capeesh.
If he can stay fit what a bargin.
Demba Ba did quite well.
If the usual trash is to be beleived we should sign him just to feck up Spurs move for Lo Celso.
Did he have a bad season in France?
Can’t say I’ve seen much of him but wonder if he’s anywhere near as good as made out if he’s ended up at Betis.
Why is he on the move for a relatively cheap price to Betis, of all teams?
I don't understand it either. Perhaps his knee is getting worse. He wasn't as good last season, as he was the season before that, but he still had a good season IMO. If his knee problems are manageable, then he'd be a good signing for a lot of clubs. He should be doing better than Betis, granted Betis have been moving in the right direction the last couple of years.
Should have taken a punt on him. Direct swap with Sanchez.
The story from Lyon is that the club was upset with him because after the medical with Liverpool, he and his brother in law tried to renegotiate the deal that they had with Liverpool which killed the move. Lyon allegedly told him to get lost.
Where is Sanchez going?
Would explain what is currently happening. Thanks.
Sanchez probably earns more than their starting 11, so how exactly would a swap deal occur prey tell
His knee is obviously fecked if no big club is going anywhere near him.
For 25M and only Betis is going for him? Has to be something more too it that we don't know.
To his room with his dogs to celebrate Lingard's goals.
No reason to look beyond the simple explanation: the people in charge of football clubs aren't geniuses
didn't he fail a medical last year? or is that someone else
Yes, he failed a medical at Liverpool, the deal was apparently £60M at the time, now its €25M.....
pity he is a very decent player must be well and truly fecked if no one is willing to take a chance
So xfer to Betis is done? Lo Celso most likely on the move then, Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for him.
He is fine, he just didn't had a particularly good season and he is in the same situation than James Rodriguez, his role isn't very popular at the moment.
The report from the Liverpool medical, which is obviously rumour due to confidentiality, was that whilst the knee could be fine for a few years it is quite likely that it could give out catastrophically at any time so any buyer is taking a gamble on that not happening. His value is further depressed by the fact that he was very poor last season and looked a significantly worse player than he did in 17/18. Whether his drop in form was due to the collapse of the Liverpool deal or simply that he has already peaked as a player is again a gamble clubs have to consider. In the circumstances it is no big surprise that the market for him is tepid due to the amount of risk involved.
He wasn't very poor, just above average.
Fekir is another Umtiti, unreal and unplayable on his day but seem to have well known and documented serious/permanent knee problems similar to Ledley King so no one will take a big punt on them.
I believe that’s why his transfer to Liverpool fell through if I’m not mistaken.
Moving to betis would be a step down and quite strange when Lyon seems willing to hand him a new contract.

What's stopping top clubs from taking a punt on him, is it the injuries?
Agreed. Rather have a guy with slightly dodgy knees than a guy whose entire body has given up attempting to play football.
Just read the article, apparently they are trying to make them sign his younger brother Yassin and make them include him in the first team .
As much as I thought it was liverpool who scuppered the deal, I reckon it's definitely his team. Ridiculous.
Bargain for his talent but his injuries are well known.
Must mean Lo Celso is off
