Stuttgart will receive +€8m for Werner.
I heard €4m in the Kicker report today. What's your source? I'd like to believe you, but I have this blind faith in 100-year old publications tic!!
Timo Werner vollzieht nach vier Jahren in Leipzig den harten Schnitt. Der Nationalstürmer, dessen vom kicker bereits am 4. Juni angekündigter Wechsel zum FC Chelsea am Donnerstag offiziell gemacht wurde, will nicht für die Leipziger an der für August terminierten Endrunde um die Champions League teilnehmen.

Thanks a lot!
It seems well-researched and I'm pretty impressed with VfB's management (for once!) for successful negotiations back then, if true. We'll see if Stuttgart make it back to the top league and what, if anything, they plan for Nat.

If LFC cannot even afford Werner forget Sancho/Mbappe.... they are going for other Salzburg players with a cheap release clause.

It would be good if we do sign Salzburg players, they seem to be a talented bunch in general. Of course we won't sign Mbappe, are you crazy? That would take a finances the size of a small country which is not possible. Sancho? Meh maybe, not very keen on the player but if we do go for him sure. I would rather have Kai Havertz, but unfortunately i doubt big spending will happen this summer.

But if we do choose to get a Salzburg player like the Korean guy or one of their creative midfielders who can play on the wings, i would be more than happy, cause they are decent players and we would get them at a good price too.

When you go into a clothes shop, look around, see something for £50 that you might wear occasionally but decide against purchasing it. Does that mean you didn't have £50?
Thats an absolutely awful analogy which doesnt fit ha. If you want to go down that road though, its more like paying 50 quid because you know your current piece of clothing is going to get old and you want to slightly adjust the new purchase before the old one wears out. Then instead of paying 100 quid when the current piece of clothing needs replacing and taking the risk it wont work ,you have got it for half price and ready to go when needed.
Bit more complicated than the simplified version you came out to get a pat on the back from the usual suspects ha

Right...

Well done for critiquing the accuracy of a simple analogy and then coming out with an even worse one yourself. That takes talent.

Who has got £200-300mill to buy Mbappe?? i'd be hard pushed to see clubs pay £100mill for Sancho aswell.

I don't know whether its just me but i find a lot of these not spending large amounts of money or not buying players in the next window as being massively negative,like the club are letting the fans down if they don't spunk the cash,like we are the only club in these uncertain financial times.

It's like having Makintosh, Burberry and Barbour raincoats at home, as well as a couple more from North Face and Uniqlo, but you see a reduced price one from Next on sale in the online store and decide you might get it. Then you decide not to, because actually you don't really need it and it doesn't look as nice in the shop as it did online. The poor weather we had forecast actually looks like it'll hit us much later than originally thought.

Simple, really.

Right. Imagine you need a coat. But you don't actually need a coat. But you think "Hmm, I might need a coat in a year or two's time" So you pay £50 for the coat you don't actually need now, because a year or two from now, that coat you're looking at might be more then even though it might not actually be a coat you want, as opposed to a coat various self-appointed coat enthusiasts are telling you to get. So in fact, you just saved money by spending £50 on something you didn't quite need yet, but may or may not need in 24 months, provided fashions don't change or another coat option you might actually prefer is available.

(Actually, I think this is basically how my wife shops.)

Anyways. Thread closed, Werner's gone.
