Who is gonna big PEA now? None of the big teams that have the cash I don’t think
Malcom is a brand new rumor but apparently it’s reliable. So not sure if we will go all out to get Zaha or go for Malcom. Barca wants to get rid and want £40m so it would be doable paying in instalments.Interesting, hadnt heard the malcom thing but that fits
Zaha at 80m is laughable, I dont think 40m was enough but something around 60m even in this market makes sense
If I were them, I'd think you sell auba this summer, his value is only gonna go down and those funds could be used in buying some much needed upgrades
Interesting I didn’t know Eriksen said he would only go to Madrid. What if Madrid get Pogba and Man Utd offer a good fee to Levy for Eriksen? Both could be persuaded to agree I would think, Levy get a good sum and Eriksen a much better salary.It's a weird situation, eriksen said he basically would only leave for madrid, and madrid like him but as you say can really only afford one more buy and like pogba more, and that's not gonna happen until the end of the window if at all
Eriksen also said if the move didn't happen he would sign a new deal. So I dont expect him to bosman
So I see 2 scenarios, spurs drop the a bit and real madrid smooth along the ceballos deal. So its something like 30-50m plus ceballos
Or he signs a new deal sometime in august, with a promise that if Madrid come calling next summer they wont stand in his way, like what Bale did before he left
Dont think so, he wouldnt want no CL, his specific words were only for a step up abroadInteresting I didn’t know Eriksen said he would only go to Madrid. What if Madrid get Pogba and Man Utd offer a good fee to Levy for Eriksen? Both could be persuaded to agree I would think, Levy get a good sum and Eriksen a much better salary.
I also would have thought Alderweireld would be on the move with his 25m release clause this summer. Not sure until when it can still be triggered
heard this on a podcast earlier and I agree..whats the point of Neymar to Barcelona? They've got a ton of talent up front. Even if they send back Coutinho or Dembele to PSG...you've got too much with Greizmann, Messi, SaurezMore on Griezmann
There has been an agreement for months between player and Barca. Clause should be paid in a few days. Barca wanted to negotiate with Atletico to pay the price in instalments because they don't have the cash needed on hand. Atletico said fuck you we want to price of the clause now. So Barca will borrow money to banks to pay it soon.
Rumours that Tuchel is fine about letting him go. PSG might have offered him to Madrid recently but Real don't want him anymore. So no bidding war for now. Looks like only Barca want him now but not sure if they could pay 100m+ euros if they have to borrow money for Griezmann. But PSG could agree to multiple payments probably. Still early we will see.
My guess is Real Madrid will go for him next year. This summer seems impossible. But Mbappe wants Madrid next, Madrid want him, star players get their wish eventually.
Rumor is it’s Messi who really wants him back. Barca try to please Messi as much as possible. But I agree that’s a lot of star players together not sure how they would work together.heard this on a podcast earlier and I agree..whats the point of Neymar to Barcelona?

Bale and Özil same struggle, no one wants to pay a big fee to get them and their huge salaries. Gazidis really fucked us before leaving with that Özil contract. Zidane really hates Bale I guess Real will try to loan him if they can’t sell him this summer. Zidane somewhat ungrateful if you ask me he wouldn’t have 3 CL without Bale scoring huge goals. But he wants his own team so let’s see what he will achieve this time.Bale only wants to go to another contender in Europe...not China...if he has to go
Fenerbahce says that will not bring in Ozil on loan
Arsenal diverting attention to possibly signing Malcolm instead of Zaha
Yep to messi, I've seen that from a few peopleRumor is it’s Messi who really wants him back. Barca try to please Messi as much as possible. But I agree that’s a lot of star players together not sure how they would work together.
And I think he will stay in Paris, for this transfer to work there would need big hurdles to jump successfully:
- PSG agreeing a swap because Barca most likely won’t be able to pay in cash everything
- Neymar agreeing to lower his salary
- Dembele or Coutinho or whoever else agreeing to go to Paris and agreeing a new contract with PSG
Theyve wanted jenkinson for awhileBale and Özil same struggle, no one wants to pay a big fee to get them and their huge salaries. Gazidis really fucked us before leaving with that Özil contract.

The latest rumor is Arsenal will try again for Zaha, this time offering money + Chambers + El Neny + Jenkinson ! Not sure how much money, but for months it’s been rumored Zaha was the number one target winger so would make sense to try again. But 3 players included seem super complicated. Wait and see.
I’m really curious what happens with Eriksen. As you say Real Madrid or Bayern could make sense as a step up abroad. But not sure both will try to get him and even want him. Not easy situation for him here.Dont think so, he wouldnt want no CL, his specific words were only for a step up abroad
So madrid, barca ( which ended any chance when they got frenkie), bayern, and maybe juve? But their midfield so stacked
Dont think he would take the step down from poch to ole to be honest, if he did though, only way I see spurs agreeing is if martial comes in a swap. Levy has said at multiple supporters trust meetings, after berba that they wouldnt anymore sell a player to direct rivals that they wanted to keep. It's why modric waited a year, he wasnt ever going to chelsea.
He has said he will renew if the 'dream move' didnt materialize, so it's not like thatI’m really curious what happens with Eriksen. As you say Real Madrid or Bayern could make sense as a step up abroad. But not sure both will try to get him and even want him. Not easy situation for him here.
I’ve just read he is only the 10th highest earner at Spurs with « only » £70-80k a week. His best move might be to play great and change club next year on a free and make bank like Ramsey just did.
Or if his dream move to Madrid doesn’t materialize, get a transfer to Man Utd and double/triple his salary.
Or renew at Tottenham but if he really wanted to stay he would have renewed months ago
Chambers was inches from joining Palace 2 years ago so they might still be interested. Best player at Fulham last season he could be worth 20m. Jenkinson not expensive but good squad guy. El Neny almost joined Leicester last year but in the end preferred staying as a substitute. If he wants to play more he will have to move, but he’s been ok as a sub.Theyve wanted jenkinson for awhile
Not sure why elneny wojld accept that
Bale and madrid is gonna be messy imo, hes already said hes got no problem training every day and golfing in spain, so hes only going if its somewhere he wants
I think madrid are just gonna have to eat that contract on a loan deal if they want to get rid, but I dont get it, like you said hes won them 3 finals, and his return is very good for a team where everything goes around cr7
But at the very least, why not keep him as a squad player, I still dont think they have a better option to start, but even if zizou wont, best sub option off the bench
Could be you know more than me about the Eriksen situation I have only read the latest articles. But doing so he has already left money off the table if he ends up renewing. If he really wants to join a top club abroad like Barca Real Juve Bayern his best bet may be to move free next year in that case a few of these will most likely be interested just like Ramsey and Rabiot this summer.He has said he will renew if the 'dream move' didnt materialize, so it's not like that
So I think it's more him waiting to see if there's a chance, the offer to him would treble his salary too
Yeah it seems it would be the best value. But Umtiti has dodgy knees I have read he has had pain after every match he played last season. And Barca may be ready to sell him this summer at €40-50m due to the knee doubts if they find a taker.So which of the 3 should psg take? I know they need a RB upgrade most, but I gotta think dembele, umtiti, coutinho just from a value perspective
No Bellerin and Holding in August they won’t be ready, so as it stands our defense to start season is worrying. Ideally we would have kept Kos and get rid of Mustafi. Now looks like we will have to keep Mustafi.Alves was still so good at copa, def worth it on a free
I'm kinda shocked at Kos too, he seemed like the one leader who had been there awhile
But you can resell one next summer tho, that's why, semedo has way less value in the transfer market than either of those 2I wouldn’t take coutinho AND dembele
One or the other for me - that being said both have shown signs of being just as big of dicks as Neymar. Coutinho less so though
Wow that's wild, not a bad start with the geordies then Burnley, but liverpool and the NLD to finish the month before international break is a tough combo with that dNo Bellerin and Holding in August they won’t be ready, so as it stands our defense to start season is worrying. Ideally we would have kept Kos and get rid of Mustafi. Now looks like we will have to keep Mustafi.
So first game of the season it may be a Sokratis-Mustafi partnership.... or Chambers.
Ideally Emery would prefer playing 4 at the back, and in 12 months our defense could be young and talented with Tierney-Saliba-Holding-Bellerin.Wow that's wild, not a bad start with the geordies then Burnley, but liverpool and the NLD to finish the month before international break is a tough combo with that d
Yeah I was surprised a bigger club didn't come for him. Man Utd could have used him. I've read he preferred signing for Leicester now instead of waiting for an hypothetical Man Utd bid later in the monthSurprised no one in the top 6 went for tielemans, spurs and man city make sense cause ndombele and Rodri
But for 35m, its come out he was basically waiting to see if united came in, and he would have definitely improved them even in just taking herrera's spit, let alone pogba
I think it makes more sense for him at arsenalThe offer for Saliba has been matched, now looks like it will be a player decision. Some sources saying he had agreed to join Arsenal and still prefers Arsenal now, but this deal has been so long to get done let's just wait and see. St Etienne may want to get even more money and a bidding war but that's already a lot for a young guy staying on loan a season...
Yeah in his place I would go to the team I will be starting every week with how weak we are in central defense, that’s the most important for a young player. But Arsenal not as sexy as Tottenham right now so let’s see should be decided very soonI think it makes more sense for him at arsenal
You’re not alone being in despair mode 3 weeks before PL starts =)United, blech. This team destined to finish 5-6th again this year and is biggest drama queens ever. Needed to make some big moves, and they get themselves James and Wan Bisaka. Meh. James is a nice player but in no way do I see him a difference maker. I see Januzaj v2.0 here. And Wan Biska filled a need, but they massively overpaid on him.
Now, DeGea wants a raise and evidently 350K/week not nearly enough. Pogba wants out and no one wants to pay any of the fees for the likes of Pogba and Lukaku. United's wage bill will be unbelievable, especially for a team that isn't even going to qualify for Champions League play again. Only July 16th and I'm already in full despair mode. Oh, Maguire may very well end up at United if they are willing to pay like 100M euros. oyyyyyyyyyy
