Who will Pay Bales enormous salary , or does he just go out on loan with Madrid footing most of that bill . Seems like a United signing

Pretty remarkable just a year and half ago Liverpool / Klopp were desperate to keep Coutinho and everyone thought any chance at titles were gone when he left, now he has fallen out of favor with Barca

And Liverpool is in second straight CL final

I dont want him unless hes essentially free, and madrid cover his salary to a point that hes not paid more than kane

Also that price for Maddison seems excessive, especially with his rumored attitude problems

Lo celso tho yes pls, rumor is he wants to come as well

Eriksen weve talked about before, if they can get top dollar than bye

Think lo celso, ndombele, and sessegnon are all likely. Tielemans getting a lot of smoke too

It's just that we should almost have a ranking system, lots of places have a tier system for rumors based on the source

I’d be surprised by ndombele but he does seem like he’d be a great fit. He seems like someone that won’t come cheap and someone that ends up at one of the super clubs because of that.

Sessegnon was thought to be a done deal last year and nothing. Though with relegation that might be much more flexible

Jovic just signed with Real Madrid for 60M Euros. Jovic was fantastic last year at Frankfurt and will be missed there. I have a feeling that team will be gutted fairly well.
This certainly is shoving Bale even more out the door. Jovic just 21.

Also....last night:
A Catalonia-based reporter considered Tier 1 for Barcelona news has reported in the last hour that Luis Suarez has an offer from Inter Miami to be their first DP. He would start in 2020, his contract would be for 4 years, and has not responded to the offer yet.
The reporter, Xavi Campos, was ranked by Barcelona fans as being "tier 1". Specifically saying "he's very rarely wrong, rarely reports."

Man United going to be a real mess this transfer season. No CL play is a dagger blow to any potential big signings. In the ideal world, they would be bringing in the likes of Joao Felix and De Ligt. But, in all honesty, Felix will probably end up at City or another big CL club and de Ligt almost certain to end up at Barca.
United going to have to make the best of whats left of the scrap heaps if you ask me.
Don't be surprised to see Lukaku, Pogba and DeGea out. Even though United valuations will be sky high, they will not receive close to what they want for them. Sanchez has to go, but no one is going to take on his salary. Valencia and Herrera already out, Mata almost another player certainly gone, This is going to be a huge overhaul.
United need so much tbh to compete with the 'big boy's' and not even close too reaching City levels.
Still have a solid base and a very good youth pipeline, but the team is going to be in shambles here soon. Rabiot as a possible signing would be okay but ffs, they will need to overpay on him, and he would be a rotation player at the likes of Pool or City right now. Disgusting goings on at OT. I have a very bad feeling about singing Ole to this contract too.

What do you think about rio potentially being the director of football

I think united this summer will spend, and they should do it on youngsters, proven ones but young ones

De ligt seems to be flirting a ton with United in the media

In regard to Rio director of football - it's patently obvious that United needs someone capable in that position to execute a plan. I'm not at all sure that Rio is qualified, however he does seem to be quite knowledgeable and with good insight as a pundit. And he has a hard on for de Ligt so that's a plus. So I'm not sure at all if he will 'fix' things or at least right the ship. TBH, I liked Moyes hire as he seemed groomed to take over for SAF. He was a miserable failure. I LOVED the Mourinho hire as his strong personality seemed the right person to lead a bunch of prima donna's and highly paid soccer players and while he brought some trophies, he seemed to stifle any creativity, fun and positive advancement in his my way or the highway attitude. Now I'm pretty down on Ole as he has never shown an inclination to be able to capably manage a side, let alone a massive side, so I'll probably be wrong again and United will flourish and start playing attacking/dominant football.

Real Madrid gotta move Bale and James for sure, but I think they are in the same position that United are in with Sanchez. No one wants them and pay them both market transfer fees and exorbitant salaries, so RM gonna have to take a discount for sure. Bale is so utterly unreliable with his injury history, it's a fools play to take him on. When he plays, he's great. But more often than not, he's got a hamstring issue. James is a bit more interesting as he seeming did well in limited time at Bayern. He didn't score much but he setup loads of goals/chances. Think I read he setup the most clear chances on goal per 90 of any player in Bundesliga. But Bayern didn't want him, Real don't have a place for him, not sure wtf is gonna take him on.
If I were to bet, I'd say Hazard goes to Real Madrid, but I don't think they will get both Pogba and Erickson too. I tend to think Pogba moves on, maybe to Juve. I'm not 100% positive Erickson moves on, I'd say he is most likely to stay with his current squad.
United gonna lose so many players because they didn't make CL play. Some good riddance, but some gonna sting. They are taking 25% wage cuts and losing out on bonuses. FFS if you can't get motivated to finish top 4, and let's face it, it was well within their grasp with 10 to go, they shit the bed to avoid a 25% pay cut, wtf they going to be doing this year? I'll tell you what, I'm older than them, but 25 year old Dylanphan woulda been one pissed off MF'er if I had to come to work the following year at 75% of my current pay. Don't care if already making astronomical money, that's a kick to the balls right there.

With the EPL now sporting a top 6, it really makes transfers more daunting to move there in my eyes and heres why

Bundesliga was great last year, but for all intents and purposes, it's a top 2 league. BM and Dortmund and everyone else. Teams will make runs here and there (Hoffenheim, RB, last year Frankfurt, Gladbach), but at the end of the year, best players are going to move on and it will be wide open again. Jovic already gone, T. Hazard - and I mean the year before Hoffenheim lost top guys, next year probably Haller, watch Rebic leave, and so on. So if you're a top player, you go to BM or Dortmund you're like 100% to get to CL play.
La Liga, same shit, but maybe with Atletico Madrid as a viable #3. Barca is going to be absolutely the nuts next year. They had a bunch of injuries this year, but already got de jong and looks like de light, I have no doubt they are going to be #1 team in the world by a wide margin. Again, you're a top name, you go to RM, Barca, AM, you're like 95% + to get to CL play every year.
EPL, well fuck, Man City is clearly deepest squad, and after that, you can make a case for 5 teams EVERY year to finish 2-6. And now, Newcastle may be coming into the mix with a new owner? So if you're a top name, you go to Arsenal lets say and HOPE you make CL one year? Maybe, but better get paid.
I guess Serie A facees similar challenges as EPL, as you have Juventus and then 5-6 teams that seeming can rotate each year (Roma, Napoli, Inter, Milan, - hell Atalanta came in 3rd last year, and Lazio is usually in the mix too), but you're playing in front of empty stadiums there so EPL is probably a better option for most.

One name that really has fallen to the wayside is Neymar. No idea what is going to happen to him.

Looks like Eriksen staying. No one gonna pay 100m for him.

Was just looking Real Madrids transfers, they've paid a shit ton and have a number of guys coming back to them off loan too. Besides the aforementioned James,they also have Kovavic and Norwegien Messi Odegard. Even if they find a buyer for Bale and James, they still gonna chase the likes of Pogba? La Liga is going to be stacked next year.

I actually think Tottenham is likely to part ways with eriksen. Maybe not for 100 million... but Tottenham need to make some changes and need to make some money. I’d guess he goes to Real Madrid for something like 80 with incentives

I think its 80% hes gone

I do think hes worth 100m based on what others have gone for, but hes in last year of his deal, which means madrid can play hard ball a bit, so I agree with big utah, probly goes for around 80

Think you guys are severely overvaluing what Spurs will get for Eriksen. Reason Spurs always wins the transfer season is they are tough negotiators and not willing to overspend on bigger fish, and not willing to sell low on their own players.
Barca didn't spend 80M euros for 21 year old de Jong. Hazard barely went for 100M and transfermkt has him valued at 150M. They have Eriksen valued at 80M euro, I just have a hard time seeing anyone bidding 50M (or more). Madrid already spent a ton, PSG probably going to have a problem splashing big money, and I can't see an EPL team giving that kind of money to Spurs to help their war chest. That will put them in a bind, take a lower bid or keep him. He's a nice player, but not a difference maker really to a big club. He was 3-4 fiddle at Spurs, that kinda player doesn't demand 9 figure valuations.
Lo Celso would be a nice score for Spurs, but he very well could also turn into the next Lamela as well. Perhaps that being harsh with Lamela's injury history and he never really flourished over a full season in Italy - but he was terrific in Italy.
Meanwhile United touting the signing of Daniel James as a viable alternative in their failed attempt to lure Jaden Sancho from Germany. I may just take next season off tbh ffs

Okay, just read Real Madrid must sell 300m Euros to comply with UEFA fair play.
This is the biggest load of shit - I would love to see htf PSG and Man City comply. Every transfer season these teams are huge buyers and every year I read how PSG is going to be penalized, yet they never are ffs.
I'm certainly no Real apologist here, but would love to see how they are going to come up with 300m in sales. Even if they can find a buyer for Bale at say 50, and James at say 40....and maybe Kovavic at 50 that's not even halfway there and those are their three most viable players widely available. They going to make a shock sale of Isco or Kroos? And suppose they go after Erikson, or Pogba or DeGea....will that not add to their net spend?
Would love someone try to explain how this will ever work.

PSG and city aren’t complying but they are able to manipulate it by having government and state run companies funnel money into the clubs. Real doesn’t have the same benefit. I don’t know for sure, but that’s my guess
