Voices in his head then?
We've got them Wednesday 29th November, so it's all clear to sign him
Klopp has immense pulling power,but even he wont be enough for this lad.
I am shocked and devastated.
Fuck this... fuck this.... fire everyone in the club!
Does this mean we can now concentrate on getting Rooney as our main signing
Any reason why this thread is still open?
It's a springboard for ZB's and Eddie's careers in stand up comedy.
Corrected the spelling for you.... don't ever let me do that for you again.
Because it's Daily Post report?
Somebody is going to get hurt...... real baad.
I see you misunderstood me Eddie
Not Wayne Rooney, I meant Mickey Rooney ( he was more likeable than Shrek)
Supposedly, we've had a second bid for Mbappe of 100 million euros rejected. No, I don't believe it either. Apparently the source for this Marca.
This Mbappe bid... I don't really buy it this time. Personally think as the player has made it clear to Monaco that the only club he'll move to is Real, that our name is being dropped by someone somewhere as a way of trying to draw a bigger bid from the Spanish club.
Or for Real to show how mighty it is in beating off competition to land him and semi justify the price eventually paid? (We only paid 90m because he really wanted to come etcetc)
Funnily enough... even though the Salah deal was well documented over these past two weeks it never factored into my thinking about my, rather optimistic, hopes of signing this lad. Then Salah signed and its suddenly hit me that this isnt gonna happen (or Aubameyang either). We may have put our hat in the ring at some point but thats about it.
I am now absolutely convinced that our front three will be Mané, Firmino and Salah with Sturridge and Origi as the alternative options. I expect a big spend at CB and a midfield option and a young LB to come in. Mbappe? Well it was fun to speculate
We should all be fired too!!
In actual fact, close the fucking club. It is over.
Traditionally a transfer thread is opened when a reliable source links us with a move. The thread then stays open until the player signs for us, someone else or says he is staying where he is.
Otherwise speculation will continue and be discussed in other places anyway. So no reason to close this or VVD or Keita until something happens one way or the other.
87.5M£!! Arent we rich these days!!
If our financial wealth is measured by the amount of bullshit peddled by the attention seekers on Twitter, then yeah - we're loaded.
Just posted Bascombe tweet in Twitter thread. Don't think it's lack of money after Salah signing that would prevent this from happening. Seems we meant it when we said we had money available.
Monaco will give us Mendy cheap if we can push the price for Mbappe to 120M?
Maybe, just maybe, he (and he doesn't seem like a stupid kid to me) and his father are simply listening to what English clubs have to say. Perhaps they see a possible move to England a good choice for his development, especially somewhere where he'd play a lot of games, spend a few seasons and then move to Real. Perhaps they think in a way, wait a minute, Monaco are selling their best players (not the same playing with a Bernardo Silva or a Tielemans, not to mention the league on a different level, maybe him wanting to work with a Wenger), why not take a look at what one of the top English clubs have to offer? I still find it hard to believe we have a concrete chance of getting him, I guess him staying at Monaco for one more season as a first choice striker (something he hasn't been this season up to a point) could still be most probable, perform at WC the most/best he can and then make a decision when maybe Real are more clear what they want to do.
@Zoran, I think there is a lot of sense to that idea. It is also reasonable to think that even if Real is his preferred move, he is aware that the unresolved Ronaldo issue may make that move difficult right now. If he is looking at how much his current side are being stripped of talent, he may well think that the Prem is a better place than Monaco to bide his time for the one or two years it takes for Real to make room for him.
Well who knows what will happen?
Coming from Bascombe, this probably deserves some credibility.
Even if it doesn't, now that Salah has leaned, I am not sure what the heck else there is to talk about outside the Unreliable thread.
This is getting ridiculous. Let's get real we need CBs, LBs, and whatever Bs. Definitely not an Mbappe.
He is defo not coming as all the great shirts are gone with the exception of 8 is great shirt
Ronaldo to Utd and Mbappe to real seems the most likely scenario to me
Hes quoting Marca rather than his own source though, and the rest of the article is just a back story.
Marca are not very reliable at all.
Joyce is saying the same thing though, we're very much interested should he decide to come to England.
It's utterly pointless though: He's not coming to England and he's not moving for 87m pounds. Pure headline grabbing from the club, we neither have a chance with the player nor do we have the money necessary. Can go into the same drawer as 'Everton bid for Messi'.
