    I was more responding to the fact that obviously we have to deal with aerial threats, rather than his height. City don’t have to as much because they have the ball for 70% of the time.

    Well we were fourth in the league on goals scored from set pieces -Arsenal and Shitty only had one more and Bournemouth just two so we weren't that garbage... Doubt that had anything to do with height though.

    Can we get both for the price of a mere Savic?

    Maguire for me. Or both. Definitely not just Milenkovic.

    I would be happy with any of the 2 at this point, nevermind both.

    I have been saying about Milenkovic all along so I'm hoping we will do a deal for him.

    Vidic was definitely something else. Forwards shat bricks when they faced him. If this guy looks up to Vidic (and he probably does) he has a very good example.
    I like eastern European defenders in general. Their no-nonsense style is something I find lacking in a lot of CBs these days.

    We can try. Would be a fantastic deal.

    sounds a plan (which is a reason why we're unlikely to do it). we're never getting rid of those players this window but two more windows should see a couple gone, while Milenkovic gets another years experience and we get instant improvement from Maguire. Downsides are Maguires price and having to pay those four wages for another year.

    Ake is another option (who could come straight in)

    Stone pouring cold water on this and the Lemina rumours. Might be a bit of a brief though.

    Think I’d much prefer Maguire anyway.

    Not the least bit excited about Maguire - because he's already a proven success everyone knows he's a great pick. if that fails however I think this guy or someone like him (a young talent already good enough to jump straight into our starting eleven) is what we'll consider for next. if we're forced to choose second best it should at least be someone who's not peaked yet / is still developing.

    Yeah that ends it for me at least. To me Stone is about as Realiable as Manchesterunited.com

    Inevitably reminds me a bit of Vidic.
    My impression is he s still a bit raw though. I think if he comes, he ll take some time to settle down.

    Although I have never seen him play I really hope that you are in right in the Vidic comparison and if we sign him and he does turn out to be anywhere near as good as Vidic I will be very happy mate :D

    Is he highly rated compared with the likes of Upamecano and Konate?

    Scored for Fiorentina at weekend though they lost (but to Napoli and only by odd goal in 7).

    Good header, attacking a corner.

    Don't know if we were really interested but wish we'd got him this Summer

    We all thought Darmian was the new Maldini as he looked so good in Italy

    I watched the game. He still has a lot to work on. He's great in the air but gives the ball away far too often. One of Napolis goals even came from him giving it away outside of the box. I'd still take a man like Milenkovic ahead of the chicken Lindelöf. At least with Nikola you know when there's an aerial duel he goes in 100%.

    I get that, he's definitely not the finished article but I like one of my CH pairings to simply be a defensive man mountain, especially when opposition have a big no.9. Think he'd be good with Maguire and he's young .... he'll learn.

    I don't disagree with anything you say I wanted us to sign him myself but at the same time we have Axel which I sincerely hope will replace Lindelöf.
