I wouldn't bet against it mate. We have signed a lot of our big players between mid July and the close of the window. Around the 20th of July seems a bit of a sweet spot for us but maybe thats just when the club decide to announce the deals.Looks like we wont be signing anyone.
Even if they sell both Coutinho and Dembele I can't see them bringing in both Griezmann and Neymar, not when they are trying to sort their midfield and defence too (think they will sign a CB even missing De Ligt). Which begs the question of what PSG will do. They are pushing the Neymar sale to Barca as much as anyone. They have severe worries with FFP and may need to raise more than they spend this summer. Hard to do when they also need to sort out other positions too. Neither Barca or Real seem to be rocking up to their door with a truck full of cash for Mbappe or Neymar this summer now (although still could happen).Did they? Haven’t seen a photo of it. Atletico are certainly cheesed off about it. What happens with Dembele? They apparently want to try and fund neymar also. Don’t see it personally.
Brutal but funny analysisI just think this whole mess of a club Barca is going to end up losing out on players because they treat them as cattle. How they stay within the FFP is a farce. Well. Phil. And Suarez you’re dreams don’t last forever. Dembele too. De Ligt dodged a bullet. I hope they fucking collapse in a heap next to RM.
I wonder if this is linked to Inter's interest in Lukaku. There were rumours Utd were interested in him, and Inter are interested in Lukaku but may not have the cash.
Given the way he and his wife have conducted themselves at Inter and over the years in their personal life it’s no surprise there’s little to no interest in him.
I don't know where to put this exactly but this is borderline outrageous. Senegal FA chief Saer Seck is encouraging Mane to go to Real Madrid.
From the Echo.....
Hope that should be enough for him to say FUCK OFF MADRID."Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour. Go somewhere else, to Barcelona, to Bayern Munich, to Real Madrid, and you will be just another player. Here you can be something more."
Good choice Phil.
