Sorry, I haven't really watched the French league since Pastore was a key player for PSG, and Fekir was at Lyon. Two of my favourites.He actually sounds pretty good option though highly unlikely it's quite plausible we might be interested because Matic needs replacing and we could do with his understudy as soon as next season.
By any chance do you follow French league , somebody mentioned another brazilian Bruno Guimarães plays for Lyon who seemed interesting prospect as Matic's replacement as well.
Kimmich isn't fit to lace Thiago's boots. He should leave Bayern just cause of statements like this.Kimmich is the best Bayern midfielder and one of the few players in the squad who is truely irreplacable at the moment. Arguably almost as important as Lewandowski. Thiago is beautiful to watch and obviously great, but I don't think he ever had the same impact as Kimmich has at the moment.
Shows how much you watch Bayern! Kimmich is absolutely class.
The only thing that Kimmich lacks is speed. He has excellent technique, passing range, vision and positioning.Shows how much you watch Bayern! Kimmich is absolutely class.
No he's not as fancy but for a midfielder he does all the dirty work + scores and assists plenty too. He's the perfect combination of workhorse and skill and presses like a mad man.
That's what I read in the papers. How much of it is true who knows. I personally think once Pep went in for him we did not stand a chance. I think Ballbag the big Scouse fan is stirring things up.For some reason I seem to think he said he wasn't a Utd sort of player, but I could be barking up the wrong tree entirely.
The story at the time was that Thiago, Strootman and someone else were done deals but Moyes wanted to scout them personally before taking a decision. It sounds realistic when Moyes was also known as dithering dave at Everton.He was ours until Moyes killed it because he thought was getting Fabregas. Absolute joker.
A full behind the scenes of how Barca is run would probably raise a few eyebrows. I mean this is just bonkers having a clause like that to begin with.I think he and Barca had a disagreement over playing time.
Wikipedia says this about it. 'The transfer (to Bayern) came despite a new contract that Barcelona had given Thiago in 2011 which set his release clause at €90 million. Barcelona failed to fulfil clauses in the contract relating to the amount of playing time that Thiago received, and as a result the player's buy-out clause dropped to €18m.
Madness if true when you consider what a top player he was then, and has gone on to be.
Shocking if true and to think he was basically endorsed by Fergie. Possibly the worst manager we have ever had...Moyes not FergusonThe story at the time was that Thiago, Strootman and someone else were done deals but Moyes wanted to scout them personally before taking a decision.
