Surely the medical was passed earlier this afternoon and the late afternoon has been the media stuff?

Isn't Fabinho still waiting on an official shirt number? (like...maybe 22?) I'm sure they won't be in a rush to announce if he's taking #1. He may get it anyway, simply from the fee and having a word with K.

Reckon it's getting too late in the day to announce it? Tomorrow morning is a good shout. And if we're doing bingo...

10am.

If anybody is interested, here's his story on the Players Tribune website. Quality site by the way and a good read in terms of getting a bit into his background.
It all went so very fast for him. From internacional of Porto Alegre to then #1 for Brazil under a few coaches.

Hard to think of players growing-up just grasping whatever World Cup comes around, like he did in 1998 and 2002, and then drawing their own inspiration. Ederson makes many preventable mistakes, AB not so much haha.

It’s such a shame our scouting department isn’t up to much... could have had him 2 years ago for 6 million.

We're not always going to get the bargain guys that exponentially increase in value. I mean, look at Coutinho.

United have a worst example in Pogba. Get rid of him, get him back for nearly 90 mil. Then completely misuse him so they don't get any value for their money. And to add salt in the wounds plays infinitely better for France.
